Our conveyor system experience is very comprehensive with many blue chip companies willing to give us references. Our team of engineers have many years of experience in conveying and handling a multitude of products from a variety of industries.
Our belt conveyors have a very narrow profile and are suitable for use in production lines where space is limited. Our standard conveyors are made from standard modules and are quick and simple to construct, are safe and have a low noise level. They have T-slots on both sides for installing guide rails, sensors, etc. There is also a choice of different drive units.

Our Flex-Chain conveyors are based on an anodized aluminium or stainless steel beam fitted with a low friction slide rail which precisely guides the flexible MODU plastic chain. Tight radius wheel bends and larger radius plain bends mean products, large and small can be carried around both horizontal and vertical bends. Bends start at 150mm radius with various bend angles up to 180°. Attachments can be added to the chain enabling products to be carried up inclines or gripped and lifted vertically. Guide rails on the sides of the conveyor make sure that the products stay on track.
Our MatTop conveyors are fully compatible with our MODU FlexChain conveyors and are used in many different industries such as Food, Pharmaceutical, Automotive, Electrical and packaging. Key features include simple to construct modular design, low friction, high performance, safe and low noise level. Used for transporting all types of products horizontally, up inclines and round corners, mat top conveyors are the answer. The mat top conveyor has an open belt consisting of elements which move independently of each other. This means they are easy to keep clean even with raw meat or wet products
Vertical lifts are used for automatically transferring items between floors or to overhead conveyors. Their narrow cross section of our lifts allows them to be situated in the most restricted spaces. Tree types of standard lift are available. The single lift type which can cycle on demand for individual items, the continuous lift type which is most suitable for higher transfer rates and the carton lift suitable for the rapid lifting of cartons. We can also supply lifts to suit a specific requirement. Please consult our sales department for details of the many options available.
We have supplied a number of conveyors that are used to display a company’s products some of our projects include: Expensive Lades Shoes in Abu Dhabi, Jewellery in the Westfield Centre shopping mall, Cadburys Chocolate Bars, Food Displays and Samples. The great advantage of using a moving display at an event or exhibition is that it encourages people to take a second look at your products
