Mechanical Conveyor Solutions

PROBLEM:  Some scrap is so bulky or heavy it requires a mechanical means of moving from point A to point B.  Often this material is being removed from the plant for recycling or being fed to shredders or balers. 

There are also many situations requiring specialized handling of parts and materials of all sizes and weights. These may include free-flowing materials, boxed parts in a staging application, or finished parts coming off a stamping machine.  Whether the material being moved is small or large, heavy or lightweight, a cost-efficient, low-energy method of conveyance is often required to capture, contain, move and deliver them to a destination inside or outside your plant.

SOLUTION: Compass Systems custom engineers, builds and installs different types of mechanical conveyors depending on the materials being moved and operating environments.  These are low energy, small footprint answers to capturing, containing, moving and delivering scrap, finished parts and different types of materials.  Compass mechanical conveyors are often the most cost-effective method of moving some materials.

Frequently Asked


When custom-engineering mechanical conveyor solutions, the most commonly asked questions are:

  • What are you trying to convey?
  • Where are you conveying it to?
  • How much material is being moved?
  • How much budget is available?

The answer to these questions will guide the type of conveyor used and the ultimate design of any solution we recommend. Our most common conveyor types are designed for the application in which they will be used. We have innovated ways to use mechanical conveyors to separate material grades and have developed a number of design features to make Compass conveyors easier to maintain, more durable and better suited to your needs.

  • Custom-engineered solutions to integrate with systems and move different parts or materials.
  • Designed for easy maintenance and long-life durability.
  • Drive mechanisms are shaft mounted for longer life.
  • A variety of linear solutions to capture, contain, move and deliver parts and materials.
  • Different belt types and movers to suit materials and environment.
  • Low energy consumption solutions.
  • Small footprint solutions with motors placed below conveying surface.
  • Typically these are quieter solutions to material handling needs.
  • Compass guarantees the performance of the mechanical conveyors we engineer, build and install for your system.
