Conveyor belt design and strategy

Specialised design of bulk material handling systems

At Boton Conveyor Systems we design and engineer conveyor belt systems for bulk material handling that are customised to meet our client’s needs and uses. Boton also offers services to review and provide solutions to optimise current existing systems in order to maximise efficiency and reduce unnecessary costs.

Conveyor Belt Design Solutions From Start To Finish

Boton Conveyor Services offer innovative, creative design solutions to help their clients meet their operational goals.  Boton Conveyor Services have extensive experience in the design and development of bulk material handling systems, as well as a dedicated engineering team who utilises the latest design techniques to provide a cost-effective solution across a wide variety of industries and business sizes. We take a number of aspects into consideration, such as belt speed, belt width, conveyor length, belt tension and belt power. This ensures a perfect fit and design every time. 

Once past the design stage, Boton then has the capability to manufacture the conveyor belt system, construct it and provide a long-term, cost-effective maintenance service contract to help prevent downtime. Boton Conveyor Belt Services are able to provide an end-to-end solution, they can ensure quality is maintained and costs are kept down through lower project costs and lower ongoing maintenance costs.

Existing Conveyor Belt Infrastructure Optimisation

Boton Conveyor Systems also offer services to review existing conveyor belts. Boton is aware that there can be unforeseen issues that arise with conveyor belts after the plant becomes fully operational. These issues can result in increased wear and tear of the conveyor belts due to belt tension, and in most cases lead to more downtime, reduced production rates and increased maintenance costs of convey belts. We also optimize your belt take-up so that belt tension is optimal to prevent the early breakdown of the belt or the mechanisms themselves.

To reduce the risk of conveyor belt downtime, Boton can conduct a full review of your system and plant operations to highlight any areas of concern. Boton can have an in-depth look at your belt speed, belt width, belt length and belt tension, to highlight any potential areas of improvement and ultimately increase the operational output of your plant. We are then Once the review has been completed Boton Conveyor Services are then able to design, fabricate and install any changes to the conveyor system.

 For further confidence and reliability in your conveyor belt system, Boton can also offer a tailor-made maintenance program for your conveyor system. Those who’ve used this program in the past have noticed that over time there has been a significant reduction in maintenance costs, reduced downtime and an increase in belt capacity which has made them more money in the long term.


How can a conveyor belt system benefit your business?

The primary advantage that conveyor belt systems have is that they automate a very large portion of labour that would otherwise require manual hands-on work. Boton’s conveyor design allows any business to speed up production, lower costs, and create a much safer work environment for all involved. Not only does our equipment help to transport new materials, but it can help to feed and load/unload large quantities of earth material with ease.

How are conveyor belts designed?

Conveyor belts are comprised of a number of different components that work together to make a moving platform. In most scenarios, a motor helps drive a set of pulleys that the belt is connected to so that motion is possible. Rollers under the belt help to keep carried material stable and prevent wear and tear of the belt.

What types of conveyor belts exist?

In the world of conveyor systems, there are a large number of choices to fit your needs. Most belts are best suited to certain industries such as a cleated belt that helps keep material stable through inclines or declines. This may be best suited to a farming industry or mining industry in which the main material transported is seeds or rock. Please find a list of other possible conveyor choices below:

-Roller Bed Conveyor Belts

-Flat Belt Conveyors

-Modular Belt Conveyors

-Cleated Belt Conveyors

-Curved Belt Conveyors

-Incline/Decline Conveyors
