Chain Conveyor Material Handling

Chain Conveyor

Chain Conveyors are used for carrying a heavy load, such as different types of Beams, Bars, Pipes, and Bushels. GMB Heavy Industries Chain conveyors are made to work under severe conditions, including high heat, extreme dust, and wet environments. 

steel mill material handling conveyors

Chain conveyors consist of Steel BlockChain and Coil Conveyor Chains in which we engineer, manufacture and install both types of chain conveyors. Suppose you have a chain conveyor built by another company and plan to reorder parts of the whole system. In that case, our engineering department can provide reverse engineering based on your current engineering drawings.
