They are often used in industries such as automotive, food processing, packaging, pharmaceutical, and bottling just to name a few. If you’re in the market for a conveyor, you might be wondering what kind of conveyor and motor do you need for your application? Rather it be a flat belt or plastic chain conveyance surface or a built-in motor or end drive positioned motor, there is an option to fit your particular application needs.
