Conveyor Belts For The Pharmaceutical Industry

Production of conveyor belts for the packaging of pads and medicines

The conveyor belts are an essential device for the pharmaceutical industry, a sector in which automation is since years acquired and is necessary to maintain the pace of work required by the market. The handling through conveyor belts of pads, capsules, tablets, and other medicines is exploited especially in the packaging phase, to convey the pharmaceutical products to specific devices.

Conveyor belts for the pharmaceutical industry

The total hygiene of the entire system taken in the pharmaceutical sector may be even more important than the food sector, for example in the bakery sector. One of the first characteristic features of the conveyor belts used for handling pads, capsules, tablets, and other medicines is the choice of the material, preferably stainless steel. 

In addition to this, the drag system must be particularly solid and reliable, given the pace of work to which these conveyor belts are subjected. This situation makes possible the choice of a belt with or without a side chain, and where it is possible also of a sprockets system, often preferable due to less need for maintenance. As regards the type of wire mesh used for the realization of the belt, the most frequent choice is the wire link, able to offer a particularly smooth and uniform surface.

The technical measures are taken by Larioreti for Conveyor belts for pads, capsules, tablets, and other medicines

Larioreti pays particular attention to the engineering and the realization of the conveyor belts for the packaging of medicines, recognizing the unique characteristics of this kind of application. On request, the customers can obtain the certificate of conformity 3.1 for stainless steel used in the realization, as needed for this type of product.
To facilitate the transport on the belt of belts for pads, capsules, tablets, and other similar products, the engineering of the belts for the pharmaceutical industry often also includes the installation of drivers, that ensure a continuous movement of the product even in presence of gradients; and especially of protective side plates, to prevent the risk of falls of the product and the consequent waste. In addition, to prevent the loss of tablets and capsules particularly small usually is required a belt with a so compact surface to be almost continuous: this is ensured by the use of a metallic tight mesh, triple, or even quadruple if it is necessary.
