What types of conveyor belts?
Conveyor belts are classified according to their cross-sectional shapes: flat belts, V belts, multi-segment belts, round belts, and synchronous belts.

1. The cross-sectional shape of the flat belt is rectangular, and the bottom surface is the working surface, which is suitable for various transmission forms. The flat belt drive is mainly used for long-distance transmission with two parallel axes and the same steering. The requirements for the balance of the two axes are relatively high, otherwise the conveyor belt will deviate when it rotates. The most common in factories is the belt assembly line.

2. The cross-sectional shape of the V-belt is trapezoid, and the working surface is two sides. Because of its large working contact surface, under the conditions of the same tension and the same friction coefficient, the friction force generated by the V-belt is larger than that of the flat belt. V-belt has strong transmission capacity and compact structure, and is mostly used for open transmission, such as motor conveyor belt.

3. The multi-segment belt is a flat belt with several longitudinal wedge-shaped protrusions. It combines the advantages of a flat belt and a V-belt, and is mostly used in high-power transmission with compact structure.

4. The cross-sectional shape of the round belt is circular. It is only used for low-speed and low-power transmissions. Its advantage is that it can prevent the conveyor belt from moving sideways to both sides and has good fixation.

5. Timing belt. There are teeth of a certain shape on the inner circumference of the synchronous belt, which are engaged with the pulley to realize transmission. It has the characteristics of belt drive and chain drive.
