Why Custom Conveyors
The idea of something custom, or designed specially to fit ones needs, often brings about thoughts of increased pricing and longer lead-times. However, with the variety of conveyor offerings from mk North America, Inc., that is not always the case.
Whether it’s a synthetic belt conveyor or a plastic belt conveyor, these type of conveyor from mk have nearly limitless possibilities. With nearly 10 different conveyor platforms to choose from, there is a solution for almost every layout, load and speed combination. And each platform has multiple drive options available; and many offer a variety of idler options to best work with your specific application. Conveyors can have cleats or flights added to them, and the variety of belt options from the top names in the industry ensure the perfect belt for your application. And because mk’s aluminum frame conveyors are constructed using mk’s t-slotted aluminum extrusion, it is seamless to add guarding, tables and workstations to the conveyor.
