Conveyor Installation

ABM Equipment specializes in providing conveyor installation for a wide range of industries. Our team of experienced professionals has the skills and expertise necessary to ensure that your conveyor system is designed and installed efficiently, effectively, and with minimal downtime.

From flat belt and roller to pneumatic and tubular drag, we install virtually every kind of conveyance system in the world. For more information about the most popular options, see conveyors.

Installing a conveyor involves several steps, starting with system design. If your system hasn’t been drawn out yet, contact us to start there and save some headache.


Normally, installation will start with a clean, prepared site for the technicians to work. But if timelines are tight and this is not possible, they will also clean the area (for a fee).


Next, the conveyor components are assembled on-site according to the design. This includes installing the frame, drive system, belt or chain, sensors or switches, and transitional components which we can fabricate or source. As each component is installed, it must be aligned and adjusted to ensure proper operation. Because conveyors run for tens of thousands of hours, misalignment or inadequate lubrication that may be difficult to detect will cause the conveyors to fail before their lifetime.

ABM Equipment is proud to be the install parter for SpanTech Conveyors.


Once the conveyors are assembled, the system must be tested to ensure that it meets the design specifications and product is transitioning as planned. This includes checking the speed, capacity, and any special features such as sorting or inclines. The conveyor must also be checked for any potential safety hazards, and any necessary modifications or adjustments must be made before the conveyor is put into operation. We typically send at least one fabricator to each job so unforeseen problems can be solved on-the-fly.


At least one technician will then remain on-site to train your staff, ensuring they are familiar with its features and operation. They will then perform a final sweep to ensure there are no stray metal shavings that could compromise your product.


At ABM Equipment we have a policy to service everything we sell, and that usually extends to things we install, even if it’s a full bulk system. We offer acute as well as long-term service contracts with 24/7 service.

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...

Tubular Drag Conveying Systems

Tubular Drag ConveyorsTubular drag conveyors are great for most non-abraisive, free-flowing products including powders, pellets, and granules. Capacities can vary depending on the configuration and product, but as a reference, tubular drag...

Tube Belt & U-Belt Conveyors

Tube belt conveyors and u-belt conveyors are most commonly used in industrial settings to transport bulk materials. They are open along the run where product is being loaded, then are closed by devices and rollers. However, there are some key...

Bucket Elevators

Bucket elevators are used to vertically lift bulk materials. They consist of a series of buckets attached to a belt or chain, which runs over a pulley or sprocket at the top and bottom of the unit. The buckets scoop up material at the bottom and...

Chain Conveyors

Chain conveyors, not to be confused with chain-driven belt conveyors, use gear-driven chains to move materials along a conveyor path. Depending on the design these conveyors can move large, heavy objects such as boxes and pallets, or they can move...

Roller Conveyors

Roller conveyors use rollers, bearings, and a little bit of gravity to transport products and materials. They are commonly used in manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution centers to move items efficiently and accurately. Benefits One of the...
