Expanded Custom Material Handling Solutions

MB Kit Systems Inc. has expanded its material handling solutions capabilities with the addition of Glide-Line panel and pallet handling conveyors.

"MB Kit Systems continues to seek out product innovations that improve its customers' production efficiencies with flexible, scalable, reliable and cost-effective solutions," said a company spokesperson. "Adding Glide-Line to its list of suppliers enables MB Kit Systems to offer its customers configurable pallet handling and multi-strand conveyor solutions."

"Like the item extruded aluminum profile systems we use for other applications, Glide-Line conveyors are highly versatile, with more than 600,000 standard configurations," said MB Kit Systems President Eveline Nordhauss. "This provides us the ability to design the best material handling solutions for our customers, with parts that are recognized for their high quality and reliability."

Designed by a long-time conveyor integrator with more than 30 years' experience, the Glide-Line system enables MB Kit Systems to:

  • Quickly design and price custom, scalable material handling solutions
  • Engineer material handling systems that meet Cleanroom Class 100 and ISO Class 5 certifications
  • Develop and ship significant projects with fast turnaround.

    The Glide-Line conveyors offer the following technical advantages:

  • Easy-to-maintain conveyor systems that can be serviced from above, without removing fasteners
  • 24V DC direct drive motors that deliver quiet, high-load, maintenance-free operation without a gearbox
  • Roller elements with precision ball bearings, offering low-friction movement for long-term, low maintenance usage.

MB Kit Systems will use a complex configurator to turn around designs and quotes quickly.

"With the system's smart design and Glide-Line's commitment to digital fabrication, custom conveyor systems can be rapidly deployed without compromising quality or construction integrity," said the spokesperson.
