Design And Optimization Of Roller In Belt Conveyor System For Weight Reduction
The aim of this paper is to study existing Belt conveyor system and optimize the critical parts like Roller, L-
channels and support, to minimize the overall weight of assembly. Paper also involves geometrical and finite element
modeling of existing design and optimized design. Geometrical modeling was done using Catia V5R20 and finite modeling
done in ANSYS14.0. Results of Linear static, Modal and Transient analysis of existing design and optimized design are
compared to prove design is safe. In this paper we work on the roller design and optimization.
