Overhead conveyors are one of the many types of conveyor belt systems used to transport product from one place to another in factories. Product moves overhead from one place to another. When the product gets to its final destination, the conveyor line brings it down to ground level for dismounting. Many applications use overhead conveyors including the transporting of car doors, kitchen cabinets and shipping cartons.
Use overhead chain conveyors in food, manufacturing or automotive processing plants to get the product where it needs to go. Examine the following when choosing an industrial overhead conveyor for your factory:
1. Purchase new equipment from overhead conveyor suppliers.
2. Refurbish overhead conveyor equipment for lower start-up costs.
3. Hire industrial overhead conveyor repair personnel to fix and maintain your system.
Select overhead chain conveyor distributors offering new equipmentLook at the new equipment and compare prices. Ask about special features you need in your conveyor system. Many companies will build a conveyor system to your specifications. Ask about warranty and service after the sale. Compare features and make the best selection for your business.
Find overhead conveyor prices for used or refurbished equipmentStart up costs for conveyor systems can be very high so alternative solutions make sense. Used and refurbished equipment can do the job effectively, so look at these options. If you do purchase used or refurbished equipment, purchase a service plan along with it to keep your used equipment running like new.
Choose repair services to fix overhead conveyor equipmentConveyor systems have many parts that can wear out and cause a break down. Regular service helps reduce the stress of the continuous movement of the conveyor belt, so contact specialists to service your conveyor system and repair it when it does break down.
- Find out if the company that sells you the overhead conveyor will also install your conveyor system. Arrange for handling the installation, unless you have your own professionals to do that task.
