The 3 Simple Facts That Make Our Conveyor Build Process Better

Posted by Kevin Mauger | Tuesday, May 11, 2021

Today’s manufacturer demands a custom system that can be quickly designed and delivered. Glide-Line has built its business around meeting this demand, allowing us to provide lead times half those of our competitors. Our conveyor is highly modular and designed intelligently, allowing us to quickly deliver conveyors and devices customized to your clients’ needs.

These 3 facts show how we have built a conveyor building process that is simply better than our competition.

 

1 newLead Times

Our lead times are half those of our competitors.

Shortened lead times start with engineering and assembling conveyor pieces into your conveyor design software. Typically, you’re required to reach out to the manufacturing salesperson for quotes, model numbers, or conveyor expertise. We offer an in-context configurator called IMPACT! for integrators to use for planning any size variations or configurations they need - and it offers pricing immediately.

2 newFlexible, Modular Builds

Glide-Line has built its processes around shortening lead times using modular designs.

This includes any customizations you’d like to make to the Zero Contact Zoned Conveyor. Our conveyors are built to be flexible as the standard, compared to limited standards from other manufacturers. And that time savings is even greater when compared to fabricating a completely custom solution from our competitors.

 

3 newCustomization

All Glide-Line conveyors can be customized for your clients’ specific needs.

Our conveyors, including the Zero Contact Zoned Conveyor, are highly modular, allowing us to quickly deliver customized solutions, from the size of the conveyor (customizable to the millimeter) to the number of strands, and any additional features you need. We can easily modify any design to create a custom solution to meet your clients’ challenges. In fact, that is how we created almost all of the solutions in our Customized Solutions Gallery - out of necessity to solve our customer's unique project challenges.
