Conveyor Belts

Conveyor belts play a crucial role in many companies. Without conveyor belts, business processes take much longer, are more sesitive to errors or simply impossible. But what exactly is a conveyor belt, what materials and components is it made of and what are the possibilities?
We are happy to explain it to you.

What is a Conveyor belt?


A conveyor belt is a piece of equipment used to move materials or products from one location to another. Conveyor belts have been around for more than 100 years and have become indispensable parts of many business processes over the years. They are propelled over rollers and are often capable of transporting large quantities of material efficiently and reliably.

Types of conveyor belts

There are different types of conveyor belts, each designed for specific applications. Some popular types are rubber conveyor belts and synthetic conveyor belts. Rubber conveyor belts are ideal for heavy and industrial applications, while synthetic conveyor belts are widely used in the food industry because of their durability and hygienic properties.

Making a conveyor belt is not assembly line work. Nevertheless, manufacturers think they can achieve maximum results with standard solutions. Once the standard solution has been put into use, however, the results turn out to be disappointing. A well-considered choice for a conveyor belt makes the difference for production.

LBS supplies conveyor belts for, among others, the agro, recycling, and food sectors:

conveyor belt Recycling

The separation and recycling of waste has undergone enormous development in recent years. Conveyor belts are part of the work processes of most companies in this sector. They are indispensable due to the strong contribution to a fast and efficient separation and further processing of waste. More about conveyor belt Recycling

conveyor belt Agro

Conveyor belts also play an indispensable role in the cultivation, harvesting, processing and storage of various agricultural and forestry products. They make a major contribution to sustainable and efficient processing. In addition, they must be able to withstand specific conditions in this sector. This includes potato and beet processing, but also technically high-quality installations for automatic feed mixing. This requires high quality conveyor belts. The tires have to deal with high and dynamic loads, pollution, fluctuating temperatures and humidity. More about conveyor belt Agro

conveyor belt Food

Conveyor belts are also very useful in the food industry - including bakeries and the processing of meat, fish and dairy products. Safety is paramount in the food industry. That is why we apply extra strict requirements for conveyor belts in the food sector. Our belts meet all food safety requirements and our even stricter own standards. More about conveyor belt Food
