About Conveyor Systems

Conveyor systems will help save time for businesses when it comes to transporting materials throughout a warehouse. These systems are mainly used for moving materials to different parts of the facility, especially things that are too heavy or bulky for humans to carry. With incline conveyors objects can be moved to different levels in a more efficient manner. This is made possible using belt, roller, motorized roller, and overhead conveyors. Systems can include belt conveyor, power conveyor, and gravity conveyor. Conveyors can move vertically, horizontally, on an incline, on a decline, and around corners.

Conveyor systems are used in a large array of industries. Industries that utilize conveyor systems include automotive, agriculture, computer and electronic, food, aerospace, pharmaceutical, chemical, bottling and canning, and packaging. Because of all the diverse types of products to be conveyed, it’s important to know exactly what the conveyor will be used for. Many of these types of conveyors are custom designed for that specific purpose only, which helps to maximize efficiency.

American Surplus specializes in designing and installing used conveyor systems. Designing used conveyor systems requires a visit to the customer's facility where we talk to the owners and staff. We measure, take pictures, and re-measure to guarantee that we can install the best conveyor system for your specific needs.

When designing conveyor systems, we look at the products being conveyed to where the products need to be conveyed, and the weight of the products. We ask the tough questions, i.e., productivity goals, efficiency improvements needed, budget, etc. After analyzing the facility, we get to work on CAD drawings using AutoCAD to make sure the used conveyor system works within the space allocated. We provide a cost estimation and time frame.

American Surplus maintains a complete conveyor shop. Used conveyor systems are assembled and tested prior to shipment. Installation is done by trained professionals at a convenient time for both parties. A project manager is assigned to each project to work with the customer, conveyor system builders, and installers from start to finish.

Used conveyor systems can provide the following benefits: Safe transportation of materials from one level to another or around curves, installation is possible in almost any facility, additional safety when compared to utilizing lift equipment.

Proper care of your conveyor system will ensure it lasts as long as possible at optimal performance. The steps to take are choosing the right conveyor type for your product, choosing the right system design for the product being conveyed, and keeping up with regular maintenance procedures. This will ensure that you increase the longevity of your conveyor system.

Advantages of Conveyor Systems

Conveyor systems offer numerous advantages in a range of different industries. Here are some of the key benefits:
