General Information


At Karl Schmidt Mfg Inc., we custom manufacture each slider belt transfer conveyor to meet the needs specific to each individual operation. Conveyor system size can be discussed when the order is submitted.


All slider bed transfer conveyors are built using formed sheet steel between the thicknesses of 10 gauge and ¼”. The frame of the conveyor system is cross-braced and welded to ensure stability. Additionally, our conveyor systems are mounted with lifting lugs — ensuring that it can be installed with the greatest ease possible.


All of our slider bed conveyor system belts are standard high-abrasion resistant belting, unless otherwise specified at the time of the order. Additionally, 2-ply flat belts and linings are manufactured with high-tension synthetic fabrics to reduce the likelihood of mildew and rot.
