Solidworks Conveyor Design Tutorial
January 23, 2011 By:
Halco Design
Using a Design Table for the Conveyor Belt, Parametric changes updateassociated components for a new design.
With the steps provided below, this process of parametric conveyor design is useful when the main construction of the conveyor stays the same, but the belt length and width changes. This will be a simple conveyor construction anddoes not include drives or bearings.The following steps will be to:
Develop the belt
Make the Slider Bed
Design Support Legs
The design parameters of the simple conveyor are as follows:Belt: Width - 18” / Length: 60”Pulley: Front and Back – 6” Dia.” Width: 1” wider than beltSlider Bed – Length: 8” Less than Pulley centersLeg Height: 36” from floor to top of beltFigure 1. Belt Sketch and ExtrusionThe controlling part of the conveyor is the belt. Using a design table, one parameter that changes is the belt length.Another is the belt width.

Figure 2. Sketch for Pulley DesignNext, develop the part model features for the front pulley. It’s dimension is ½” wider on each side of the belt.When the pulley is created, insert a second copy in the back end of the belt.Figure 3. Slider Bed DesignThe slider be is a sketch based from the width of the pulley. Using the base flange feature from the sheet metalcommands, the length is determined from a plane you create 4” off of the back pulley center plane.
