  Conveyor Systems Modulus will custom design, fabricate and manufacture conveyor systems to suit your special needs. We can manufacture anything from simple gravity conveyors or complete turnkey conveyor systems in our plant. We provide the most cost effective and reliable equipment for your material handling needs.
Gravity Conveyors Gravity conveyors provide the answer to most material handling applications and are a very economical solution. Their almost continuous bearing surfaces make them ideal in production and warehousing applications, industrial or retail trades, and can support more weight than other conveyor systems. They are highly flexible for easy layout modifications. Their simplicity in construction permits faster installation with a minimum of expertise and expense. Conveyors are available in 5 ft. and 10 ft. standard lengths and 45 and 90 degree curves. Custom lengths and curves are available. All rollers are manufactured with the highest quality components for long and dependable service. Each roller is equipped with spring loaded axles for fast, easy insertion and removal from frames and can be implemented into most systems in use. Frame rails are supplied in widths to match roller BFR's and have holes punched into 1 1/2" centers for variable roller spacing on light and medium duty frames. Axle holes are punched to suit roller spacing on heavy duty frames.
Modulus offers a full range of accessories for use with roller conveyors such as supports, hinged gates, guard rails, ball transfer strips etc.

Belt Driven Conveyors
Modulus handling systems supplies heavy or light duty belt conveyors for every application.  Belt conveyors are best used for items where the bottoms are uneven or irregular, small items that could fall between rollers, or soft items such as bagged items, which could get caught in conveyors. Our designs include stainless steel, internal drum drive systems, externally mounted drives, variable frequency drives (VFD’s) up to 150 fpm.  Various belt options enable clients to select the belt that best suits their application.  Contact Modulus today for you belt conveyor needs for industrial, food or pharmaceutical applications.   

  Chain Driven Conveyors
Chain driven conveyors are primarily used to drive heavy loads, pallets, drums etc. and are commonly used in areas where grease or oils build up, which would be unsuitable for other types of conveyors. Our designs are rigid, reliable and can be quickly installed into most production areas.     
  Wheel Roller Conveyors
This type of conveyor is very economical. Most often used on products which have flat bottoms, the load can be larger than the conveyors if centered properly. This system is regularly used when loading trucks or skids where the supports are removable.

Ball Transfer Systems
Ball transfer systems are the perfect solution for product lines where the load must be manipulated, rotated or shifted, or where multiple production lines come together. Ball transfers may be used in stand-alone situations, added to other types of conveyor systems such as gravity conveyors, or even installed on custom lift tables.

Pre-Start Health and Safety Reviews

PSR's are required when new equipment or modified equipment are introduced into the workplace. The workplace and work procedures are reviewed by a professional engineer who is familiar with the equipment and processes that is able to verify the general conformity with the requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Safety Act of Ontario and the Regulations for Industrial Establishments .


N.D.T. - Non Destructive Testing

NDT is an examination of products for defects/cracks. Modulus employs a wide range of analysis techniques to evaluate the properties of material without causing damage. In areas where welds are used to join two or more metal parts, non-destructive testing is imperative because welds may encounter loads that may cause the structure to fail if not created to proper specification.


Home Made Device / System Certification

 Ontario law states a lifting device shall be made of sufficient strength to ensure the safety of all workers. In addition, each device is to be inspected by a competent person. Lifting devices shall have specific markings and instruction for proper use. At Modulus our professionals are “Competent” and knowledgeable, capable of evaluating and supplying complete certification of your devices to ensure safety according to the law.
