Goods can be conveyed at an incline even on smooth belt surfaces. The conveying angle is dependent on a variety of factors such as the type of goods being conveyed, the top face coating and external factors like dust, moisture, etc.
For large conveying angles and for the conveying of small pieces and bulk goods, Forbo Movement Systems offers patterned belts or belts equipped with lateral profiles.
