Belt Conveyor

Economical and Versatile Transport Conveyor

Featuring a simple, yet versatile design, belt conveyors are an economical conveyor used to move products over long distances, at high speeds or for incline or decline applications. Powered belt conveyors move a continuous belt loop to transport items from one point to another. They’re often leveraged to move light to moderate weight items, items of varied shape, bagged items or fragile products, that may require more reliable control during load handling.

With access to a variety of automated conveyor system technologies, Bastian Solutions experts can help identify the best conveyor solutions and configurations to support your throughput goals.
