Perhaps this will give you some ideas if all you are designing is a prototype to demonstrate a concept.Hello folks!
I am making an industrial automation project for which I need to make a conveyor belt. So I want to know which motor I should use for the project and what should be the dimensions of the conveyor belt?
If I want to make a conveyor belt what are the components I will need?You may want to start with circumference of a circle and look at your motor RPM. You have a drive pulley for your belt and one or more idler pulley(s). For example a drive pulley has a diameter of 12" so the radius is 1/2 of D or 6". Sorry, I am in the US so you get inches. Calculate the circumference C = 2π r so C = 37.7 if the pulley rotational speed is 30 RPM your belt will travel 37.7 * 30 = 1,131 inches per minute. 131 / 12 = 94.25 Ft. per min. This is the general idea. This does not account for weight on the belt or belt design. You also need to figure your object size and how you choose to scan it.
I really suggest you give this a read as there is much more to a conveyor belt project that you seem to be familiar with. There are literally dozens of types of conveyors. Read the link, it should get you started.
Can I use 30 rpm geared motor for my project? As I don't want to move my conveyor very fast. Which are the standard motors I can use for my mini conveyor?
You were given all the data and information. a 30 RPM motor means nothing without the pulley diameter. Now if you don't understand that then I suggest a simpler project.Can I use 30 rpm geared motor for my project? As I don't want to move my conveyor very fast. Which are the standard motors I can use for my mini conveyor?
