A good choice to enhance sustainability
Conveyor belts are very sustainable material handling systems since they allow for eco-friendly production and safe work conditions. First, they entail less pollution and low energy consumption compared with other traditional solutions. They just not reduce CO2 and pollutant emissions and the amount of energy used, but they also imply less noise pollution which is an apparently invisible but as much dangerous risk. This results in a cost-effective solution, able to preserve natural resources, air quality and workers’ health. Moreover, operators can rely on the high security of conveyors which minimize the hazards associated with moving any kind of material because, requiring less direct human labor, they remove workers from direct exposure to dangerous conditions. Of course, a sustainable conveyor system comes with a high-quality design where any single component plays a key role in ensuring these advantages. Hereafter, Rulmeca introduces the advantages of its range of material handling components for conveyors explaining what does sustainability mean in product design.
