A conveyor belt system offers a simple and economical method of moving loose and packaged goods across a wide range of plant activities and applications.

As a trusted name in conveyor solutions, Smalte creates highly effective belt conveyor systems using quality components from leading conveyor belt suppliers. From standard designs using off-the-shelf hardware to fully customised systems, we’ve got a solution to suit your plant’s individual needs.

If you need something specific from your belt conveyor design, we can incorporate a variety of specialised features to create a unique solution. For example:

> Timing belts and v-belts
Usually seen in twin or multi-lane configurations, these are often used for product transfers where only a narrow support surface is required.

> Polycord round belts
These can be a versatile choice for transporting and transferring lightweight products.

> Magnetic decks
Magnets assist with containment of loose metal parts such as fasteners by holding them to belt surface.

> Troughed decks and skirts
These design features create a more contained area for loose products in transit.

> Infeed troughs, chutes and transfers
Your conveyor belt system design can incorporate a variety of connecting components to meet your production needs.

> Weighing and metal detecting
This additional functionality supports efficient operations in certain types of plant activities.
