Belt Driven Conveyors

Belt Driven Live Roller, or BDLR, conveyors are a form of powered roller conveyor classified as “on-floor” systems (as opposed to “overhead” or “in-floor”).

The flat belts found on a BDLR conveyor are used for transporting light and medium-weight loads between operations, departments, levels, and buildings.

Flat Belt Conveyor Pros & Cons

Advantages for this type of conveyor include:

  • Roller or slider bed construction for straight transportation applications
    • Note: The slider bed is used for small and irregularly shaped items
  • Availability as a horizontal or incline conveyor with power feeder and noseover transition rollers
  • Considerable control over the orientation and placement of the load

A disadvantage of this type of conveyor is the lack of smooth accumulation, merging, and sorting operations on the belt.
