1.Primarily used where bulk materials must be conveyed

2.The belt can negotiate tight horizontal and vertical curves. This eliminates or reduces transfer points, which is a big cost saving. Inclinations of up to 35° can be dealt with.

and it must not be too stiff, which would increase motor power resp.
energy consumption and lead to premature wear of the belt and the
The belt must always open and never overlap on the pulleys.
