Abstract: In most of the industries (Process/ Manufacturing) raw materials need to be transported from one destination to another. Material handling equipment are needed to be designed such that transportation of material / products must be easy, cheap, fast and safe loading and unloading with least human interference. For instance, belt conveyor system can be employed for easy handling of materials beyond human capacity in terms of weight and height. This paper discusses the design calculations and considerations of belt conveyor system in association with drive rolls, in order to ensure fast, continuous and efficient movement of raw material. The successful completion of this research work has generated design data for industrial uses application.
