When you have a simple application and just need to get your product from point A to point B, our Standard Conveyors will move your products seemlessly.
Whether you have the need for a straight, incline or curving application we have the conveyors that will fit your demands and your space. Our Standard Conveyor systems are simple but effective and require very minimal design time to ensure you get your products moving as soon as possible.
Accumulation is the collecting of products on a conveyor to move them as a group instead of individually. Accumulation occurs by halting the product on the conveyor allowing the products behind it to catch up and group together.
Accumulation is needed when you want to move a slug of products through at one time, typically seen when packaging multiple products in a single bundle. Or, if one part of the production cycle runs at a different rate. Or as a safe guard against a line shut down if a machine at the end of the line goes down. You can continue running and accumulate product before the downed machine instead of shutting down the entire line.
While you can accumulate on any of Span Tech’s chains, (other than high friction), we designed Tube Top chain specifically for the accumulation application. By allowing the tubes to roll under the accumulated product Tube Top chain decreases the back pressure felt on the products (back pressure – how squeezed the first products are by all the accumulated products behind it pushing on them). The rolling tubes are also much more gentle on the products that have printed surfaces.

Need to move products in a linear manner from one conveyor to the next? We can provide the best solution possible, with transfers that are strong enough for heavy products and smooth enough for the smallest. The proven technology is developed to work seamlessly in conjunction with our conveyors, but they can also be adapted to use on other systems as well. All of our transfers are washdown capable and can be either slave-driven from the main conveyor shaft or independently powered by their own gearmotors. Our transfer systems get your products where they need to be faster. Let us show you how they’ll work on your system.
