Roller Bed Conveyors
Roller conveyors are the perfect non-motorized material handling solution for any type of small to medium operation wanting to automate and reduce labor. Especially effective in packaging and distribution centers where light to heavy loads with flat bottoms, such as boxes, cartons, totes, cases, skids or drums, can be moved manually along a flat conveyor or down an incline. Options include roller bed and skatewheel conveyors.
Belt Conveyor Systems
Belt conveyors powered by motors usually feature at least two pulleys, or drums, that move a flat conveyor belt along a continuous loop. They are great for any size company that needs to move items of varying shapes, sizes and weights across a long distance.
Belt conveyors also provide added safety because employees don’t have to lift and move heavy items, and are a great option when moving products on an incline or decline.
Wire Mesh Conveyor Systems
Designed to handle anything hot, wire mesh conveyor systems are commonly used in industrial and commercial applications to transfer metal works, ceramic or glass, and food items. More durable and heat-resistant than regular belts, flat wire mesh conveyors are perfect for moving hot parts that need to be cooled or dried.
From heat-treated metal parts to freshly-baked cookies or doughnuts, the wire mesh design allows air to travel through and around products. Plus, the stainless-steel belt meets industry sanitary requirements for food processing.
Vertical Conveyor Systems
Vertical conveyor systems are a cost-effective, easy way to move materials upward or downward via inclining or declining belts, or bucket elevators. Used for moving boxes, containers, packages, bags, trays or agricultural products like grain, vertical conveyors automatically move items between two or more levels.
Great for operations with limited space, a vertical conveyor creates a small footprint which saves valuable floor space. Stainless steel conveyors are heat and chemical resistant, easy to clean, and customizable.
Flexible Conveyor Systems
When your conveyor needs expanded capabilities or you experience frequent product handling changes, flexible conveyor systems are adaptable to different configurations, providing exceptional versatility. Designed to ergonomically load and unload trucks, move materials around curves, transport oddly-shaped packages, or other items when a fixed conveyor isn’t practical or efficient.
Flexible conveyor systems are great for distribution centers, box companies, small automation, shipping and receiving, portable assembly lines, manufacturing, food processing and the pharmaceutical industry.
Other Conveyor Designs
Other conveyor systems we sell include food grade conveyors, chain conveyors, screw or auger conveyors, radial stacking conveyors, C-channel frame conveyors and deep truss frame conveyors.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a conveyor system?
A conveyor system is a mechanical or automated means of moving materials along different stages of the manufacturing or distribution process. Common examples of these systems that many people are familiar with include the built-in counter conveyor belt at the local supermarket, and the conveyance mechanism used by their dry cleaner.
Other larger and more elaborate systems include those used by the U.S. Postal Service as well as companies such as Amazon for the conveyance of millions of retail items shipped daily to and from their warehouses. There are as many conveyor types as there are industries that use them. Trust Capital City Conveyor & Supply to be your conveyor supplier for whatever system you need.
How much does a custom system cost?
Custom systems vary in price depending on its size, complexity, type and materials (vertical, flexible, roller bed, wire mesh, plastic belt, aluminum frame). Prices can vary anywhere from $15,000 to more than $400,000 based on your material handling needs.
For example, industrial facilities such as large food processing plants may require conveyors with a particular belt material or design, or a belt conveyor with unique functionality. In the large packaging industry, gravity roller conveyors can often be found where packages are hand-pushed along rollers by workers as opposed to conveyors that utilize full automation driven by an electric motor.
Also in industrial production, the material handling requirements may differ still with safety conditions regulated or monitored by labor unions or organizations such as the Federal Government’s Operational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). In these instances, conveyors may need to work in tandem and in an efficient way with a dust collection system that removes potentially hazardous materials from the air such as sawdust, glass and plastic shards, chemical fumes or heavy metal powders. These systems guarantee efficiency of the work and the safety of the workers.
For small businesses, a better solution may be a turn-key system that is manageable and that they can quickly repair in the case of a belt breakdown.
What type of system is best for me?
Conveyor systems manufacturers produce a complete range of industrial conveyors for every conceivable need. That includes belt conveyors, roller conveyors, stainless steel conveyors, overhead conveyors, gravity conveyors, pallet conveyors, pneumatic conveyors, vertical conveyors, metal detection conveyors, food grade and retrieval systems.
Each is designed to solve specific automation or mechanical challenges in materials handling processes.
