Elcom Modular Flat Belt Conveyors
The Elcom range of flat-belt conveyors has been developed around the
Item aluminium profile system. Using standard Item components as well as
specially designed parts these flat belt conveyors have many years of proven
use in the field and come with the same standards of quality you would
expect from Item itself.
These conveyors come complete with single or 3-phase motors with worm
reduction gearboxes from stock, offering standard nominal belt speeds of
2-24m/min. Alternative combinations can also be provided to produce faster
or slower belt speeds to suit individual applications, making them the
natural choice for either incorporating into machines, or as stand alone
Flat Belt Conveyor 20
This conveyor is manufactured with Item 20x20mm line 5 profile, making it
ideal for very small and light-weight components. It is fitted with a
centrally mounted motor, and is available in lengths up to 3000mm.
Flat Belt Conveyor 40
The Elcom Flat Belt Conveyor 40 utilises Item 40mm line 8 profile, making
it suitable for a wider variety of components, both in terms of size and
weight, and is available in lengths up to 6000mm, with 8 set widths from
40mm to 400mm.
The Central Drive Conveyors are the choice to make if it is necessary keep
the ends of the conveyor clear. The motor can be repositioned anywhere along
the length of the conveyor so it is also an excellent choice if a degree of
flexibility is required.
End Drive is suitable if a flighted belt is required. It is also the lowest
cost option due to the lower number of component parts.
Double Belt Conveyor 40
Available in Central Drive or Extremity Drive configurations, the Double
Belt Conveyors comprise a pair of Conveyor 40s driven by a single motor.
Separated by a distance up to a maximum of 800mm, they are suitable for
carrying wide components, or where it would be useful to have free space
between the conveyors.
Flat Belt Conveyor 90
The Elcom Conveyor 90
suitable for handling heavier and bulkier products. It is based on Item 80mm
line 8 profiles and is available in 5 fixed widths from 500mm to 1000mm. The

conveyors, 24V DC motors can also be provided.
The are a number of options when considering the choice of belt material. A
polyurethane belt is generally fitted as standard which is suitable for more
aggressive environments or where accumulation of parts is a possibility. An
alternative general purpose PVC belt can be supplied, suitable for
transferring all kinds of components. Other options include harder wearing
rubber belts or, for high temperature components, silicone belts are
available. In all cases, it is possible to specify antistatic
characteristics for use in the electronics industry or clean rooms.
Flights/slats can also be fitted upon request.
Longer conveyors can be fitted with lower belt supports which will limit the
amount of belt sag which is inevitable on the underside of a long run of
An optional Nosebar can be added to Conveyor 40s up to a width of 120mm.
