Conveyor belts are primarily employed for carrying objects from one point to another. The material to be transported is placed on the belt and is carried to the end point on the belt. The two main industrial classes of belt conveyors are general material handling and bulk material handling. General material handling are those used to move boxes along inside a factory while bulk material handling are used to transport large volumes of resources and agricultural materials such as grain, salt, coal, ore and sand.
