Conveyor belts are widely used in the transportation and material movement in diverse production processes. Generally, the equipment has a constant flow, moving materials from one point to another of the production process. The equipment is basically composed of motors, gearboxes, pulleys and their respective bearing casings.
The motor is responsible for activating the machinery that, due to its low operation speed and high loads, requires a coupled gearbox. Motors and gearboxes have already been specifically addressed before, so we will give more attention to the conveyor belt pulleys in this article.
