Course overview

Conveyor systems vary from small, simple conveyors to massive, industrial conveying systems. To operating and maintain these systems, technicians need a working knowledge of the basic components used in a typical conveyor. They also need to understand the equipment making up an industrial conveyor system.

The Introduction to Conveyor Systems training course describes the components of a typical belt conveyor used in an industrial setting. It identifies equipment found in large-scale, industrial conveying systems. It also describes the purpose of each piece of equipment. This online training course highlights:

  • Basic conveyor principles
  • Industrial belt conveyor components
  • Industrial conveying systems

Introduction to Conveyor Systems is part of the Best Drive Maintenance series.
