Used Conveyor Systems

conveyor system

Conveyor systems are an important part of manufacturing plants, warehouses, and shipping facilities. Used conveyor systems can provide an assortment of advantages for these facilities in many ways. These systems help convey equipment, materials, and other items efficiently over long distances. This can help to decrease expenses, human labor, and the manual handling of materials. Conveyor systems are used for things like manufacturing, assembly, picking, and distribution just to name a few. These systems will significantly decrease the number of accidents in a facility as workers will not have to physically move products or heavy loads throughout the warehouse. With the safe transportation of materials from one level to another or around curves all over the warehouse fewer products will be damaged. Due to decreasing the number of items being damaged in a warehouse from the use of conveyor systems, businesses can be more productive in their operations.

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.

Conveyor Systems Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the benefits to purchasing a conveyor system?
A:Conveyors benefit any business as they can increase efficiency and productivity within your workplace. These systems save time by quickly moving material between multiple levels or directions. Conveyors do not cause damage to your products, and they are one of the cheapest methods to move material great distances.

Q: How much maintenance does a conveyor system require?
A: For most types, conveyors do not need much maintenance other than an occasional cleaning of the belt or tension checks. Bearings must be greased every 10,000 active hours as well – lacking an adequate amount of grease can cause a bearing to overheat – leading you to require a replacement.

Q:Are conveyor systems easy to operate?
A: Yes, ASI can assure that conveyor systems are both simple and safe to utilize if the typical manufacturer’s guidelines are followed.

Q:Does the type of product I’m moving relate to the conveyor options?
A: Yes. When moving product across levels, it’s important to know how much friction the material will have on the belt. Depending on slip, grip, or sharp edges, you may require a specific conveyor belt or different materials. As always, feel free to call the office if you have questions and the ASI sales team can assist in finding the correct conveyor for your needs.
