Abstract

Designing and manufacturing work on Material Handling Equipments specially material conveying system is being carried out in many heavy engineering companies. To overcome the time delay, in conventional design approach, for the design of belt conveyors by utilizing the CAD facilities is not only the need of time but is also necessary for the market competition in this area. This paper explains the methodology of converting the conventional design process of belt conveyors to Computer Aided Design (CAD). This includes software engineering approach and the usage of different tools in order to get a computer based solution for the design of belt conveyors. Application of parametric design and design for manufacturing concepts could also be followed. The main idea is to automate the drafting process and the lengthy calculations involved in the design phase. General arrangement or assembly of a belt conveyor is shown in Fig. 1.
