The use of conveyor belting dates back to the 19th century, when a series of inventions led to the use of conveyors for transporting coal and other products. Conveyor belting sparked the revolution of the mining industry soon thereafter. In 1913, even Mr Henry Ford introduced conveyor belting assembly-lines to produce his iconic Model-T Ford.
Today, conveyor belts are used in various industries and companies to improve workflow and automation.
- The longest known conveyor belt in the world is 98km long and is found in the Western Sahara.
- The Dubai International Airport uses 63 km of conveyor belting for their baggage handling system, that’s right – 63 km!
Conveyor belts are typically made up of two layers. The first, called a cover and the second, a material layer, to provide linear strength. The conveyor cover is made up of polyester, nylon or cotton and the material layer of rubber or plastic compounds.

In addition to conveyor belts, we also supply a unique mechanical rip-stop which is embedded in the conveyor belts. The rip-stop is made up of transverse wires, which are steel cords running up the width of the belts. The transverse wires ensure the added benefit of strength, reduced tear and good impact.
