Product Design Specifications For a Belt Conveyor2Executive summaryProduct design generally deals with a variety of processes that help ensure the success of aproduct in the market by increasing its chances. This normally is made possible by the uses of aproduct design and specification. This is a kind of representation of product which providesdetailed specifications of a product according to the requirements of the customer. Thisdocument provides all the relevant market demands relating to the product and also a conclusivemarket research. Below is a product specification of an A8120 series belt conveyors. It is analuminium conveyor that is of medium weight and has good characteristics in terms of itsstrength and robustness[CITATION Wil09 \p 643 \l 1033 ].This conveyor belt has the advantage of adapting to a wider range of handling applications. It ismade from an alloy of aluminium and steel beds and also 113 drive drums. Besides, this type ofconveyor belt is easy to maintain due to its versatility nature. Idler rollers and the drive that iscontained in the end of the tension can be removed without much difficulty hence making cheapthe maintenance costs and also reduces the time taken to replace the drives. These belts areattached with a guidance system that purposefully helps in the improvement of the product lifeand also increases the safe use of the conveyor belts in many applications.The A8120 heavy duty belt is most applied in systems containing large conveyor belts and alsofor systems which comprises of automated processes. Besides, this is heavy duty conveyor beltcan also be suitably applied in a process that requires a constant throughput whereby when thedowntimes become longer then the costs incurred are high[CITATION Mik14 \p 843 \l 1033 ].
