Conveyor Engineering

ABM Equipment provides comprehensive conveyor engineering services for food, pharma, chemical, and aggregate applications. Our experienced process engineers ensure you’re using the optimal conveyance method, that the equipment is built with the optimal materials and features, and that the final system operates as a cohesive unit. When needed, our mechanical engineers then custom-design conveyor models for your application and components themselves.

From initial design to installation and maintenance, we ensure that your conveyors and systems are optimized for efficiency and reliability.

Our conveyor engineering services begin with a thorough analysis of your specific needs and operational requirements. We take into consideration factors such as material and product characteristics, flow rates, and space constraints to design a conveyor system that maximizes productivity and minimizes downtime.

By choosing our conveyor engineering services, you can benefit from our in-depth knowledge of conveyor systems and our commitment to delivering high-quality solutions. We utilize the most recent technology and industry best practices to ensure that your conveyor system moves your product efficiently and safely.

We have a broad range of experience in most types of material handling and logistics applications and understand that equipment is ultimately useless if it’s not supported. We service what we sell by policy, provide 24/7/365 support for customers, and offer service contracts to ensure maintenance schedules aren’t neglected.

Common Conveyors

Screw Conveyors

Screw conveyors are one of the oldest conveying methods known to man and still the ideal method for many applications. Though screw conveyors and augers are technically synonymous (any conveyance method driven by rotating threads) the processing...

Magnetic Conveyors

Magnetic conveyors use magnetic fields to transport and manipulate bulk materials either by moving a magnetic belt or gripping ferrous materials through the belt for sorting. These conveyors are commonly used in industries such as mining,...

Vibratory Conveyors

Vibratory conveyors use vibrations to move bulk materials. These conveyors are commonly used in industries such as mining, pharmaceuticals, food processing, and agriculture, where the efficient handling of materials is critical to maintaining...

Spiral Conveyors

Spiral conveyors move units of product vertically where floor space is limited or the product needs to be travelling through multiple floors of a facility. (See bucket elevators for vertical movement of bulk material). Spiral conveyors are...

Reasons Conveyors and Conveyance Systems Need Customization

Unique Operational Needs

Each application and space has its own unique operational needs, and it can be very difficult to find out-of-the-box models with the right mix of features and tolerances. By tailoring the system to your needs, we can optimize efficiency and your bottom line. Whether it’s navigating space constraints, managing environmental threats, or integrating with existing equipment, custom designs enable us to address your unique operational challenges. For example, we can customize location of service panel, upgrade the washdown rating, change how the belts or screws are removed, add dust control integration, change the mounting method of drives and accessory tools, etc.

Varying Material Characteristics

Materials being transported can vary greatly in terms of size, shape, and characteristics. And having a custom system allows you to take advantage of or work around these material characteristics to ensure gentle handling, prevent product damage, and optimize material flow. Our sales and engineering teams can select the appropriate conveyor type, belt material, and configuration to suit your specific material handling needs.

Process Integration

Conveyor systems need to seamlessly integrate with other processes and equipment in your facility. By customizing your conveyors from the beginning, you can ensure smooth integration, promote seamless material transfer, and minimize bottlenecks.

Cost Savings

Custom conveyor systems can be more cost-effective up-front by ensuring that you only invest in the features and capabilities that essential to your operation. They can also save money in the long-run by improving material flow, reducing labor, and minimizing product damage and equipment wear.
