ABSTRACT
The food industry is characterized by specific technical and technological conditions. Sanitary and epidemiological considerations play a very important role as well, and the materials used in production must meet the appropriate conditions. In the case of transport operations, the above criteria must also be met. The article presents the problems of transporting beverages in aluminum can packaging using a plate conveyor. Depending on the efficiency of the production machines, the type of material (product packaging), the location of the center of gravity and the angle of friction, the parameters of the conveyor's work were determined.
