Monitoring conveyor belt operation

Efficient loading processes on belts, stockpiles, ship loaders, and silos require the precise measurement of the material flow in order to keep downtimes to a minimum and maximize control. It is very important to minimize loading problems when controlling the material flow from mine site to port of loading. SICK provides a comprehensive solution for these requirements which is especially suitable if conventional scales or load cells are exposed to mechanical wear.
