      Hey guys hows it going. Im new to this forum, and been trying to do some research on conveyor systems but havent found anything.

      What i was looking to build is a carpet conveyor system thats able to move at least a 250lb load. Not sure on where to begin as far as choosing the right product ie. motor, reducers, drives etc. Can anyone point to to some calculations(torque, rpm, ratios), or some literature that will help me with this project. been lookin all thruogh the web and havent quite found anything. I have the basic mechanics fabricated like the shaft, bearings, body etc. Thanks in advance.

      This one in the picture, is it a "carpet conveyor"?
      There is a lot of information on the Web concerning any type of conveyors, not sure about this exact type, so you will have to find a close one and adopt it.
