Getting product from point A to point B isn’t always as easy as it sounds. If your product has special handling needs based on its shape, orientation, type of material, line rate, or secondary operations to be performed while on the conveying surface, then you might need a custom conveying solution.

Custom Conveyors Based on Standard Designs

Starting with our first work in the bakery and confectionery industries back in the mid 1950’s, we have offered the conveying systems necessary to allow a group of machines to operate as a true process line. Over the years we have refined our designs and added many features to our conveyor systems that allow us to address an increasing array of conveying needs, and do so in environments that require sanitary operation.

Common Types of Conveyors for Automated Food Lines

Depending on the configuration, our custom conveyors can also be offered in a variety of conveying materials such as: flat polyurethane belt, round polyurethane belt, metal (wire) belt, plastic belt, and various types of fabric belt. Some of the conveying solutions we can provide include:

  • Straight-running conveyors
  • Side-flexing conveyors
  • Belt turns
  • Spirals (elevating & lowering)
  • Accumulating conveyors
  • Close-nose transfers
  • Retractable nose transfers
  • Roller transfers
  • Side-belt transfers
  • Lane guiding/switching/diverting
  • Angled nose conveyors

Standard Designs

While each project we take is unique, we have developed some machinery solutions that are standard designs. Our standard designs have already been engineered, tested, and are currently in live production lines. Each is available for customization to meet your needs and desired production capabilities.
