HOW DOES IT WORK?
For example, you need to know the current belt condition to define when it needs to be replaced by the new one. For this you just need to enter the online data base under a special access – all the necessary information is there. iBelt allows to track effectively the position and condition of conveyors located over and under the ground, and to track belt maintenance history. Using the system, you can define the location of each roll: where it is located geographically, in which production area and on which conveyor; what type of conveyor belt and its current condition. The system allows to manage the conveyor during its whole life cycle. You can plan conveyor’s repair so that production downtime is minimal, and thus effectiveness of enterprise’s performance rises, costs control is provided, and maintenance expenses are reduced. The system database allows to sort and filter equipment according to different parameters, it means there is an opportunity to provide analytics of conveyor complex condition.
• belts stocks and dispatch control;
• defining of belt type in the roll;
• defining of roll location;
• belt condition and wear control (whether it became narrower in width or in other places).
Each roll of the belt has integrated electronic chips. They are connected with the database, containing all necessary information about the belt. The database can be accessed from any computer or device connected to the Internet. The system works in real time mode, and any updates are accessible immediately after synchronization. It is also possible to learn all necessary information about conveyor belt on site. For this purpose, manual scanner is used, which should be directed towards the object, and the data will be output.
iBelt is designed for application at different industrial enterprises: in coal-mining, warehouse companies, at ports and cargo terminals, at any production facilities, in agricultural sector. Belts with iBelt are used for transportation of coal, metal products, stones.
