Conveyor system manufacturers offer many different systems
It is believed that the very first conveyor system (a belt conveyor) was developed around 1795 and consisted of leather belts running over wooden beds, which worked with the help of hand cranks and pulleys. This and similar conveyors were mostly used in shipyards, for transferring farm goods onto ships. A while later they began using steam technology (which had already been invented) to power belts. The first steam-powered conveyor belt was used by the British Navy in 1804, for the needs of the kitchen. Most people consider the modern era of conveyor systems to have started in about 1970, when a company from Louisiana registered the first patent for a belt made completely from modular plastic components. Today, conveyor systems are more diverse, efficient and durable than ever. Their reliability gives them a chance to be extremely long. The longest conveyor of today runs through the Western Sahara, where it transports phosphate from a mine to the coast, over 60 miles away.
With the help of magnets, brushes, automated levers, gravity and preprograming, modern conveyor systems lift, sort, divert and curve products, packages and parts across horizontal and vertical distances. Some work with the help of electric motors, while others are completely power-free, relying on an operator and gravity to keep the system going.
To transport parts or products across the facility, onto the next finishing process or along the assembly line, conveyor systems may use one, several or all conveyor types. Belt conveyors are the most common, followed by chain, roller, spiral, overhead and vertical conveyor systems. Other types include food, industrial, gravity, pneumatic and screw conveyors.
The term “industrial conveyor” refers broadly to the conveyor systems used by manufacturing companies. We use them to transport materials and products within a fixed warehouse or factory space. Due to the numerous benefits they provide, this kind of systems are used widespread across a range of industries, including the mining, automotive, aerospace, electronics, computer, agricultural, food processing, pharmaceutical, chemical, bottling, canning, print finishing and packaging. Some of the most common conveyed materials include food items such as beans and nuts, grain and animal feed, pills, powders, bottles, cans, automotive components, scrap metal, wood, furniture etc.
Out there, there are many conveyor system manufacturers. Before choosing your conveyor system we recommend you write out a list of your specifications. Think about the items your system will convey. Are they heavy, loose? Is it food, medicine? Are they combustible? Think about the whole operation. Does it need to incorporate cleaning, assembly or anything else? Does it need to move over long distances or bend around curves? After defining all that also consider your budget, timeline, delivery preferences and post-manufacturing needs (installation assistance, etc.). Write down any questions you have. In Nieros we have the best experts that will help you to determine and design exact type of the device that will cover all your needs.

Their high quality of manufacturing and practical designs has gained the trust of their customers worldwide. All of their devices are made of high quality parts that ensure long life span and endurance. Constructions made of stainless steel are easy to clean and comply with the strictest quality and hygiene standards.
Food processing conveyor
The food processing industries typically use material handling conveyors for red meat, poultry, fish, bakery, fruit and vegetable processing lines. This type of ergonomic conveyor systems are designed to accelerate the productivity of production processes and in the same time simplify work and optimize the workforce. Cost-effective and fully automated, they also ensure that the production complies with the highest standards of product quality, while reducing food waste.
Nieros food processing equipment features stainless steel rotary turntables and telescopic conveyors that represent an excellent hygienic solution for all the food production in search of optimal material handling. Their fully customized food-processing telescopic conveyor can cover the entire loading area and allows simple and fast loading and unloading of trailers. With its adjustable length, height and working speed, the device minimizes any unnecessary manual lifting and handling of the load.
Depending on products, production type, size of production area and other specific features of production lines, Nieros conveyor systems include the possibility of combining different elements. They can be customized according to the speed of the conveyor belt and the number and height of the transport levels. Their industrial conveyors have special digital control arrangements, which facilitate working processes and increase productivity.
