        Handling Equipment

        Conveyors, Feeders, and Product Intake & Storage

        Homogeneous slurry or caking blend, every product has a way it likes to be moved and stored. Whether your best solution exists out-of-the-box or in a unique blend of equipment built from scratch, we’ll deliver a system that optimizes your project’s ROI.

        Processing Equipment

        Blenders & Mixers, Mills, Classifiers, Feeders, etc.

        Our oldest area of expertise, the processing umbrella includes equipment needed to mix, separate, and alter products: milling, blending/mixing, particle size reduction, filtration, sifting, dust collection, process controls, and volumetric and gravimetric weighers and feeders.

        Inspection Equipment

        X-Ray Machines, Checkweighers, and Metal Detectors

        Product inspection receives the bulk of our R&D budget. We source, modify, and integrate metal detectors, checkweighers, samplers, magnetic systems, moisture analyzers, lipid analyzers, PH monitors, and x-ray machines. We have over 30 x-ray machines in stock for rentals, demonstrations, and training.

        Packaging Equipment

        Palletizers, Placers, and Fillers for Bags, Pouches, Drums, Boxes, & Totes.

        We package various classes of product and can integrate nearly any system. We most commonly deal in bulk weighing automations; open-mouth and pouch bagging equipment, line accessories, and shaping, filling, and sealing.

        A-1 Scales

        Lab scales to heavy industrial, sales to installation & repair

        ABM Equipment’s weighing division, A-1 Scale, is the Portland Metro area’s primary scale and calibration provider for all types of professional scales, from nanograms to tons. A-1 Scale handles our complex weighing applications and ensures accuracy and precision of our weighing and batching systems.
