Steel Supplier for Conveyor Manufacturers
Capable of speeding up material movement while cutting down on human labor, conveyor systems have revolutionized everything from food production to eCommerce fulfillment. With Arbor/Metals Inc. in your corner, conveyor manufacturers have easy access to the steel products needed to quickly deliver these material handling solutions to customers.
Better Material Handling With Steel
Conveyor systems are the unsung heroes of manufacturing, distributing, and warehousing facilities. That’s because they’re designed to expedite the product transit from one point to another, increasing operational efficiency and productivity.
Items conveyed can range from packaged consumer goods and food products to minerals and slurries. As a result, conveyor systems must be built to withstand prolonged use and degradation from the process media being handled.
Lightweight and strong, alloy steels are the perfect material for conveyor system construction. While specific performance attributes vary by grade, common characteristics of steel alloys include:
- Easy To Machine
- Certain Grades Naturally Resist Corrosion
- Simple To Fabricate
- Available In Many Finishes

What’s more, our team takes pride in rapidly quoting and turning around shipments.
The Right Metals For Conveyor Systems
The metal alloys from which components are made make the difference in material conveyance. The most commonly used metal alloys include carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum.
Carbon steel is robust and easily formable. Stainless steel resists degradation, chemical exposure, and bacterial growth. High amounts of chromium produce a protective surface oxide layer that stands up to moisture and self-heals when subjected to impact forces. Aluminum is incredibly lightweight, flexible, and rust-resistant.
One-Stop Steel Alloy Solutions Provider
Sometimes getting alloy steel in a specific condition needed to kickstart conveyor system manufacturing requires additional processing. However, moving in-process materials between service providers can be time-consuming and resource-wasting.
Making your job easier is the top priority at Arbor/Metals Inc.. That’s why we’ve invested in advanced equipment capable of delivering the materials you desire in semi-finished or fully finished conditions.
