The conveyor belts are made from various materials such as rubber, polyester, leather, nylon, etc. Getting the accurate length, width and thickness is an essential step to choose the right belt.

The movement of the conveyor system is also an important factor to consider. If the belt moves upward or downward, then the belt should be welded by the guide, sidewalls, or cleats. Therefore, whether can be welded also needs considering because it means you need preparing machines to weld, such as the guide welding machine or the high-frequency belt welding machines, which you can find in Beltwin.
