Modular belts consist of modules that are assembled by means of cross pins. The modular belt is driven by a chain sprocket or a toothed, vulcanized rubber coating. The modules can be assembled into different lengths and widths.

Synthetic belts (PVC, PU, PE, silicone, rubber)
Synthetic belts are designed as endless belts. Carriers, guide profiles, wavy edges and trimmings can all be welded onto the belt. Synthetic belts are driven by a friction roller/drum motor which is often higher in the middle (camber/crowning).

Synthetic belts mostly run straight, down or up.... go to >> Synthetic belts (PVC, PU, PE, silicone, rubber)
Toothed synthetic belt (thermoplastic polyurethane, TPU)
Extruded thermoplastic polyurethane with toothing on the backside. Driven by chain sprocket or drum motor with toothed vulcanized rubber coating.

Uniform extruded polyurethane without textile reinforcement or joints, which is a hygiene advantage. The belt runs straight, up or down. The... go to >> Toothed synthetic belt (thermoplastic polyurethane, TPU)
Apron belt (= apron chain)
Apron belts consist of apron plates that are hinged to the underside with a single or double hinge. Apron belts are driven by a chain sprocket. Belt width and apron plate width are identical. Note: Apron belts are not recommended for direct food contact.

A roller conveyor consists of several rollers.

Conveying large, solid objects. Often used as transition between lines and in connection with directional changes.
The rollers themselves must be of one material, e.g. full turned plastic... go to >> Roller conveyor
