Belt Driven Live Roller 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.
