A conveyor system is a common piece of mechanical handling equipment that moves materials from one location to another. Conveyors are especially useful in applications involving the transportation of heavy or bulky materials. Conveyor systems allow quick and efficient transportation for a wide variety of materials, which make them very popular in the material handling and packaging industries. Many kinds of conveying systems are available, and are used according to the various needs of different industries. There are chain conveyors (floor and overhead) as well. Chain conveyors consist of enclosed tracks, I-Beam, towline, power & free, and hand pushed trolleys.
Multiple kinds of goods such as raw materials, production parts or finished goods need to be repeatedly transported within production facilities or distribution centers every day. Overall productivity depends on effectively moving the right goods at the right time to the right destination, under total control.
EFACEC can provide an extensive range of automatic conveying solutions, allowing for an efficient material flow to be implemented in a distribution or manufacturing operation. Whether you are handling carton boxes, plastic totes, metallic trays, pallets, or heavier loads, we have the appropriate solution to meet the specific requirements of every application.
All major functions of an automatic conveying system, namely transport, handling, picking, tracking and sorting of goods are covered by our own portfolio of equipment and controls.
