A Digital Twin for Belt Conveyors

A reliable digital representation of a physically installed belt conveyor - the digital twin enables you to understand the key triggers to optimize the operation and maintenance of your belt conveyor system.

To improve the service life of belt conveyor components, enhance the operational efficiency of belt conveyor systems, and increase their materials handling throughput you need to start by thoroughly understanding how an existing belt conveyor system operates. A belt conveyor’s digital twin can then guide you on the path toward optimized operation and maintenance.

Why a digital twin for belt conveyor systems?

Our digital belt conveyor twin technology provides real-time feedback on the compatibility of the operating conditions of every major belt conveyor component – with all data measured live. Component stresses are calculated utilizing a dynamic physics-based model and proactive feedback is provided to enable operators to make informed decisions based upon real data – with a clear outline of the consequences of each and every action.
