5 Easy Steps to Choosing a Conveyor

Written By:

Selecting the right conveyor to use in your facility can be difficult as there are many brands and types to consider. It’s kind of like buying a car. You don’t walk into a dealership and simply ask them to show you a few “cars”.  Typically, you have some parameters in mind and an idea of what you need the car to do for you–off-roading, family vehicle, efficient gas mileage, etc.

You might argue that selecting conveyor is even trickier than a car. Oftentimes, you don’t just purchase one type of conveyor; you could need various types within a system, each with its own function. Considerations can include the product to be handled, your facility environment, throughput goals, and more.

When choosing conveyor, our team is always available to speak with you on the phone, via email, or in person; however, below is a helpful infographic from our friends at Dorner Conveyors to get you started in the conveyor selection process.
