A Framework for Belt Conveyor Engineers and Designers.

Build your conveyor from ground up, assembling conveyor components from open databases. Use these components to assembly your conveyor system, and run optimization on costs, suppliers and mechanical design.


The database contains every discrete element of a conveyor system that can be stored on the site. These elements are used throughout the site as list entries form groups, sets of components and data entries.
