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.
