The construction of a conveyor with suspended belt is represented. It consists of three basic design nodes—drive station, linear section, and tensioning station. The mathematical model of optimizing steel structures of the main design nodes is developed. They include the target functions of the drive station, linear section, tensioning station and improve mass and dimension parameters. The system design, strength and stiffness constraints are compiled. They are imposed on each target function. The universal structural diagrams are designed for steel structures of the drive station, linear section and tensioning station. They are subject to optimization and allow taking into account the presence of excess rods and a diagonal rod of a steel structure. The calculation of steel structures of the conveyor with a suspended belt was executed by LLC “Conveyor”. This conveyor is in maintenance. The comparative analysis of the steel structure of this conveyor with the steel structure of the similar conveyor with the suspended belt obtained in the process of optimal design is made. As a result, it is established that the mass of a steel structure has an excess margin of strength and stiffness. It is found viable to implement the optimal designing of a steel structure at the initial stage of its development. This will significantly reduce the weight of the suspended belt conveyor belt at the current operating condition.
