Belt conveyors for all automation needs

With the rise of industrial automation, belt conveyors have taken on most of the transport tasks involved in production processes. Nowadays, wherever you look, you’ll find belt conveyors in all different designs and versions.

Belt conveyors are suitable for almost any industrial application in which piece goods are to be transported without any particular requirements in terms of their orientation or positioning. All different shapes and dimensions, packaged or unpackaged, light or heavy, can be transported using a belt conveyor.

For these applications, MK offers a huge range of standardised, modular belt conveyor systems, also called GUF. The design options are virtually unlimited: any width from 50mm to 2m, any length from 300mm to 20m, loads of up to 350kg, and speeds of up to 80m/min.

Thanks to a compact design using aluminium profiles, the conveyors are easy to integrate into existing production lines, even complex ones, and to adapt as necessary. The profile system makes the design highly flexible, and lateral profile grooves provide ample options for mounting attachments and accessories. In addition to straight segments, belt conveyors are available in double-line, inclined and curved versions. Special designs are available for clamping, vacuum and magnetic applications.

MK developed a standard straight belt conveyor in the mid-1970s. Today, innumerable further developments later, it forms the heart of the portfolio of MK conveyor technology. Over the years, versatile belt conveyor series of all different sizes and weight classes have been created. The perfect conveyor can be configured for virtually any type of goods, transport or environmental conditions.

The smallest series, GUF-P Mini, is particularly well-suited to transporting and separating small components with low volumes and weights. Since the belt recirculation is integrated in the conveyor frame, the conveyor can be placed directly on the machine bed.

The compact GUF-P 2045 series is perfect for integrating into systems with limited space available for installation. The 50mm diameter drive roller combined with the weight-optimised, 45mm tall conveyor frame profile produces a conveyor that is extremely flat and without any obstructing edges. .

The GUF-P 2000 series is the all-rounder for light- to medium-weight goods. It is extremely versatile thanks to the large assortment of available drives, tails, stands and belt types. Furthermore, the system is available with an optional stationary or rolling knife edge.

Based on the MK 2251 profile, the sturdy GUF-P 2041 series was developed for high belt loads of up to 150kg and for conveying goods up to 1200mm wide. It uses an 85mm driving roller that affords highly efficient transmission of the motor’s power.

The MK GUF range also includes a double belt conveyor, particularly well-suited for transporting small work piece pallets. The belt runs entirely on wear strips, which allows for a maximum weight of 15 kg per section.
