Belt Over Roller Conveyor
Belt over roller conveyor is a very common style of conveyor. Belt over roller (also known as belt on roller, or BOR) conveyor consists of a long belt that is wrapped around the rollers in a conveyor bed. This belt is spliced together and is kept under tension to provide friction against a powered roller that then drives the entire length of the conveyor belt. Belt on roller conveyor has several advantages over other belt type conveyors. Specifically, it's typically able to support heavier and more irregularly shaped loads and also provides greater control over the orientation of the load. Belt over roller conveyor is also ideal for inclines or declines.Belt Over Roller Conveyor Prices
"Roller Conveyors work best where the load being transported has a flat, uniform bottom surface. For oddly shaped or differing loads, you might want to consider belt conveyor."

Belt Driven Roller Conveyor
While technically, belt driven live roller conveyors don't use a belt to directly convey loads, it still uses a drive belt to provide power to the conveyor rollers. The difference here however, is that the belt lies under the conveyor rollers and provides power to each roller from underneath. This belt creates friction on each roller which drives the rollers and conveys the load. Belt driven conveyor can be used with many other types of conveyors in a complete conveyor system, but is not ideal for loads of differing shapes or inclining/declining movement.Belt Driven Roller Conveyor Prices
