There are different definitions for a conveyor belt or assembly line. The most concise is: a belt that is moved over rollers to transport materials or products. Conveyor belts have been around for more than 100 years and through innovations have grown over the years into versatile and often indispensable parts of business processes.
A commonly used type of conveyor belt is the rubber conveyor belt. This type of belt is suitable for both light and heavy duty applications. Sectors that often use rubber conveyor belts are, for example, recycling and the agro-industrial sector. Think of road construction, mining, sand extraction and agriculture and horticulture.

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 Agro
