Slat Conveyor General Specifications
A slat band conveyor consists of slats that run on a looping chain around sprocket wheels. Each slat is of the same design, with extensions and recesses on each of them. On slat band conveyors, these enter the recesses of the next adjacent slat, connected by a pin.
As a result, this allows for a great degree of flexibility within this conveyor type. This layout allows a slat conveyor to run in curves, inclines, and straight lines as needed by the user. Combined with their variable operating speed, this makes them highly versatile.
Slat conveyors are available with either plastic or stainless steel chains and slats. A slat band conveyor is often used for moving small packs and for their rapid speed and accuracy.
