If you run an industrial facility, conveyors are part of everyday operations. One of the new forms of conveyor systems
is the plastic modular belting. This belting system was pioneered around 1970 by J.M. Lapeyre. The belting design consists of pieces of plastic joined together to form an interlaying brick model. Their entry into the industrial power systems has seen a major shift from the conventional metallic models. Plastic modular beltings are preferred because of their tracking capabilities. Unlike the fabric models that rely on friction, the plastic models are based on positive drive. This means that some series of sprockets
engage with the underside of the plastic belting to drive it. The positive engagement makes the belting friendlier and more efficient, especially where the conveyor needs to move around corners.Note that plastic modular beltings are recommended for low-tension and low-temperature operations.
