The idler conveyor is cost-effective and efficient transportation equipment to transport objects from point A to point B. It consists of a driving drum, bend drum, carrier roller, bracket, impact bed, hopper, frame, driving device, and so on.
Before studying the installation of the conveyor, we should first understand the structure and installation of the idler. A precision roller is composed of many accessories: protective cap, seal holder, dustproof cap, labyrinth seal male, labyrinth seal female, circlip, washer, bearing, inner seal ring, bearing house, roller pipe and shaft. Layers of installation form precision water - and dust-proof idler.
In terms of conveyor installation, GCS professional installers have experience in installing almost any conveyor component or integrated system project. Whether your conveyor project involves a simple gravity roller conveyor or a fully automated conveyor system with controls, we have the right conveyor installation team for you. Our installers are professionally trained and appropriately trained in mounting conveyors, integrated conveyor systems, automated conveyor controls, etc. We also use appropriate tools and equipment to efficiently install and anchor all transportation components. During installation, it is our job to comply with all safety standards and corresponding regulatory requirements.
1. Install the frame of the conveyor
The installation of the frame is from the head frame, and then the middle frame of each section is installed sequentially, and then the tail frame is installed.
2. Install the driver
When installing the driving device, it is necessary to pay attention to the belt conveyor's drive shaft and the belt conveyor's centerline perpendicular, so that the width of the driving drum's centerline coincides with the conveyor's centerline, and the reducer's axis is parallel to the transmission axis.
3. Install idlers
After the installation of the frame, the transmission device and the tension device, the roller frame of the upper and lower roller can be installed, so that the conveyor belt has a bending arc that slowly changes direction, and the distance between the roller frame of the bending section is 1/2 ~ 1/3 of the normal roller frame distance. After the roller is installed, it should be turned flexibly and briskly.
4. Identify the conveyor
After the installation of the driving drum and idler, the center line and level of the conveyor should be aligned. Then fix the rack to the base or floor.
The light-duty and short conveyor will be installed in the factory and can be directly put into use after being transported to the site. Heavy-duty conveyor installation is installed on-site.
