Transcon Conveyor builds conveyors to solve specific customer operational issues. Our conveyors are built to last in punishing environments. We know that our conveyors are doing their job if they keep up with your operations and don’t cause any unscheduled downtime. At the core of Transcon’s conveyors are attention to details that make a difference in how well our conveyors perform in the long run. Our conveyors are based on our long history with chain driven designs and robust welded hinge steel belting installed in heavy duty frames.
Welded hinge belting allows us to customize our conveyors to meet your exact needs. If you require thicker pans to carry your material, it is a simple matter to integrate thicker material. If you need a flush top to protect your parts, we weld the pan high on the loops. If you need special cleats to move your parts uphill, we can accommodate any requirement. If you need a mesh screen to protect your parts or allow for faster cooling, we replace the belt pans with an open structure to support the weight of your parts and then cover the belt in a mesh screen sized to meet your needs—you get the robustness of a welded hinge design with the belt surface you need.

Transcon designs conveyor systems to move material from multiple collection points to single load-outs.
Chip Removal Conveyors
Chip-out conveyors are ubiquitous in the machining industry. Transcon builds heavy duty chip-out conveyors that can handle fine, chips, cut-offs, and machining fluids, and efficiently move it away from your machining center.
Scrap Handling Systems
Moving scrap from press lines and consolidating multiple lines into a single discharge location is a Transcon specialty. We have long experience designing and building some of the largest systems. Increasingly, press lines must accommodate steel and aluminum scrap and flexibility keep it segregated until it is discharged. We can help you determine which sort of system will work best in your circumstances.
Getting a large scrap bin or railcar evenly filled with press working scrap to optimize freight charges is often hard to achieve. Transcon Conveyor has several off-loading options to achieve even loading. A simple swivel chute (activated by hand or automatically) will fill small tubs well. Shuttle conveyors can evenly fill the larger roll-aways or rail cars. These systems are usually equipped with sensors to keep your scrap moving and going into a tub. We start with your operations and economics and offer you options to meet your needs.
Your Expert Source for Advanced Scrap Handling Conveyor Systems
Our expertly engineered and manufactured scrap handling conveyor systems will add to operation efficiency and live up to your production demands. Whether your application is light or heavy duty, our engineering and manufacturing experts can create a customized conveyor solution to meet the demands of your operations.
Heavy Duty Conveyors for the Forging Industry
Transcon designs and manufactures custom conveyors to meet the demanding needs of the forging industry. Customer features include conveyors engineered to modify process temperature of parts through the conveyor which can reduce secondary machining and finishing costs and enhance the performance of the parts. Transcon’s conveyors for forging can reduce costs, increase productivity and reduce downtime.
If you are forging and need a wide belt with lots of heat sink capabilities and a low surface area, our bar belt designs can provide the exact configuration you need. We can even offer 72-inch wide conveyor belts without any issues with heat deflection, a major factor in reducing belt life. If parts need to cool down slowly for metallurgical processing, these conveyors can accommodate differential heat levels, so your belt will not warp and your conveyor tracking remains true. If parts need to cool down fast, these conveyors can accommodate high air flow moving upward through the belt to increase heat transfer.
Multi-lane conveyor belts are sometimes the best solution to separate parts from scrap, but sometimes the specific circumstances do not allow for the parts and scrap to be loaded and discharged on the same belt. Our piggy-back design (just like it sounds—one conveyor atop another) allows you to shoehorn two single lane conveyors into a smaller space with loading and discharging in different locations and at different heights.
