Belt Analyst™- Horizontal Curves
The Horizontal Curve Analyst is an advanced design tool that can easily be implemented
onto most conveyors. To begin the design process, calculate and select component options
on your belt conveyor as if it were straight. Once Horizontal Curves is opened from the
Add-ins menu, the required structure alignment can be determined.
The roll configuration and banking angle required to keep the belt within the idler set
window can be calculated here. The location of the restraining rolls and the force between
the belt edge and restraining roll must defined in order to accurately calculate the curves.
Horizontal Curve Analyst can also calculate the belt stresses across the width of the belt.
This is a very powerful design tool for a more advanced belt conveyor.
