Beltcon 19 – The International Materials Handling Conference and Exhibition

Beltcon 19 took place during the first week in August, 2017, in Pretoria/South Africa. This biennial conference chalked up yet another success for the International Mate­rials Handling Conference organisers, providing a platform for local and international experts to present the latest research, current techniques and future trends in the materials handling industry.

 

Beltcon attracts accomplished speakers and researchers from around the world such as South Africa, India, Australia, ­America, Chile and Germany. It is a forum for interactive exchange of knowledge and innovation over a concentrated time period. Topics covered included: technical evaluation of a coal silo failure; finite element analysis on troughed belt turnover and textile belt analysis; Aramid in conveyor belts; design considerations of a downhill conveyor system; dynamic and fatigue analysis on bulk materials handling equipment; the influence of steel cord conveyor belt dimensions on indentation rolling resistance performance; and a case study on the development of input parameters for DEM simulation, plus many more.

 

Suppliers displayed products and services relevant to the conveying industry in the exhibition that ran concurrently with the conference, always a drawcard for delegates and a useful networking opportunity for the exhibitors. Beltcon 19 papers are available for research or publication upon request from the IMHC office. Copies of papers presented at all past Beltcon conferences are available (with certain copyright conditions) on the website: www.beltcon.org.za
