For the continuous transportation of material a belt conveyor are used in the transport of coal and mineral powder it gives high efficiency and environmental protection. In some cases according to requirement if we increase conveyor inclination up to 170 to 180 the impact on the whole assembly of shaft occur due to this impact of material on conveyor shaft it break or bend within few month. An analysis of stress and impact creates on roller shaft with the help of Hypermesh and to develop design of shaft for 170 to 180 create model Analysis using hyperwork. By using design failure modes and effects Analysis (DFMEA) for systematic, proactive method for identifying where and how it might fail.
