Industrial Material Handling Equipment

Industrial material handling conveyor

Reliable conveyor belt systems will require high-quality accessories, including rugged conveyor idlers that support the belt and conveyed material to prevent it from stretching and sagging, as well as impact beds built to absorb shock loads. An accurate conveyor belt weigher will also ensure that feed rate is regulated.

When it comes to safe transportation using cranes and trucks, facilities are investing in collision avoidance systems that can track vehicles and machinery. PBE’s collision avoidance system uses EM (electromagnetics), RFID, GPS and bi-directional radar at the same time for accuracy. It can be configured to recognize different groups (such as vehicle types or personnel), and the dash-mounted PAS-Z Proximity Alert System alerts drivers to the presence of personnel, vehicles and obstacles.

Conveyor belt maintenance for industrial material handling

For facilities relying on conveyor belts to transport good between locations, effective maintenance is essential to ensure that operations are not interrupted. This includes choosing from a wide range of primary, secondary and specialty belt cleaners on the market, as well as carefully selecting rugged components such as sheave wheels, cable clamp stops, and v-plows. Industrial facilities must also make informed decisions when choosing which belt fasteners, belt clamps and belt cutters are best suited for their application.
