However, friction, vibration, and other factors can cause the components they’re made of to come free or move improperly.

Why Material and Food Handling Equipment Matters

Conveyor systems are the unsung heroes of manufacturing, distributing, and warehousing facilities. They’re designed to expedite product transit from one point to the next, increasing operational efficiency and productivity. 

Items conveyed can range from packaged consumer goods and food products to minerals and slurries. As a result, conveyor systems must be built to withstand prolonged use and degradation from the items or process media being handled. 

Utilizing fasteners and bearings not designed to excel in conveyor system applications can quickly become the root cause of myriad issues that can bring productivity to a halt. 

  • Mistracking
  • Wear
  • Stoppages
  • Unwanted Impacts
  • Blockages
  • Heat Build-Up
  • Abrasion
