The belt conveyors of type GL-EM 120 are used for especially low conveying height, e.g. near the floor or on the floor. This is often the case when buffering containers e.g. are being filled via a chute from a machine or via a small feeding belt. Such buffering belts are usually set up longitudinally of production machines (linear buffer for piece goods).
The belt conveyors of this type are also used to dispose parts from low machine shafts. This might be the case e.g. in printing shops or in the paper industry where edge strips of paper are cut, on blanking and punching machines or in the plastics industry.
Depending on the precise task to be performed, these delivery belt conveyors are equipped with various belts, partly with special lateral seal mechanisms, in order to be able to also convey thin or sharp parts safely and without any deadlocks. These may be e.g. flexible deflectors/fenders which rest on the belt. Alternatively, corrugated edges and longitudinal guide rails can be welded directly onto the belt covers which form a rotating sealing.
The individual underframe supports are mounted in the conveyor guiding profiles and thus, can be moved over the entire belt length and adjusted in the height. This is especially beneficial if any floor unevenness needs to be adjusted and compensated.
