Employed in nearly all kinds of industries, conveyor belts provide an excellent mean for moving cargo and materials from one place to another. In the mining industry, they are particularly useful because they allow mineral ores to be transported over rough terrain or difficult-to-access areas, and offer a cost-effective and reliable way of moving a constant stream of material that would otherwise have to be trucked from one location to the next. The high levels of productivity and low operating costs involved have led to a widespread adoption of belt conveyor systems. And because mines are typically located in remote areas, these conveyor belts stretches tens of kilometers. In fact, the mining industry owns some of the longest conveyor belts in the world designed to transport mineral ores from the mines to the refineries or ports or stockpile centers.
