Modular Belt Conveyor

Product Handling Concepts Modular Belt

The Modular Belt is a highly customizable conveyor chain. It is made by linking together plastic modules with rods. This kind of construction allows for a large variety of standard widths and even the ability to make custom widths if necessary. 

There are two main categorizes of modular belts; straight running and side flexing. Straight running belts are not able to go around curves, but need less complicated frames to hold the belt due to their increased rigidity, and tend to be less expensive. Side flexing belts cost more and require more complicated supports and frames, but have discovered the wonderful ability to turn. Other options include inserts such as high friction top, cleats, or hold downs.
