Span Tech Canada manufactures all of its products in-house.  Every component that goes into a Span Tech transfer
conveyor, including the chain, has been designed and built by Span Tech. This why they run so smooth
and quiet (<45 dB).   Every component has been carefully engineered to work together and
provide the lowest cost of ownership over the lifespan of the conveyor. We can do things with our
modular packaging conveyors that our competitors only dream about.  We can build conveyors as narrow as 30mm and as wide
as 1.5 metres – all with a common component base.  We can longitudinally twist our entire conveyors
through a full 180 degrees (think of a pretzel).  We can assemble wedges from standard components
making them very economical as compared to purpose-built systems.  We can push, pull or “push and
pull” using dual drives on both the head and tail of the conveyor.  This simple feat can
significantly extend conveyor runs between transfers meaning less transfers and, that, is always a good
Gravity transfers, power belt transfers, power roller transfers, low profile idlers,
drives, friction top chains, flat top chains, flights, lane dividers, moving side guards,
auto-adjusting guide rails and ultra low back pressure chains are all standard items.  There
is no
need to re-invent the wheel.  We have it all.

No matter what type of
goods you need to handle, Span Tech Canada offers a range of material handling conveyor
systems for
your company. We have designed these conveyor systems to quickly move materials from one
point to
another in your facility. No matter what stage of the manufacturing process you are working
on, our
material handling conveyors can handle the job. Whether you are producing, inspecting,
packing, or
doing anything else, our material handling conveyor systems will last for a long time. We at
Tech Canada are happy to design custom material handling conveyor systems for your facility.

you know:
  Span Tech Canada recently launched a brand
new chain called the “Pillow Top”?   It’s gently curved top surface
completely eliminates the cordal
action that normally occurs at entry and exit to conveyors.   Cordal action
has the negative effect
of making it very difficult to provide tight transfers for small, sensitive
products.  By
eliminating this cordal action, Span Tech Canada can now easly tranfser
difficult products such as
tortillas, proofed croissants and soft cookies.  Ask about Pillow
Top today.

We obsess about transfer
technology.  We fully understand the importance of moving your products without disturbing
product spacing or alignment. We also understand that poorly designed transfers are very
costly to
you in terms of waste and lost productivity. That is why we have the most extensive
selection of
standard transfer conveyors in the industry.  We offer gravity roller, dead plate, powered chain and
roller transfers – all fully engineered and integrated into our transfer conveyors. When even the
transfer will not work for you, we can offer a technology to run hundreds of feet of
conveyors (in
any configuration) with “zero” transfers.  You heard us right – the complete elimination of
transfers utilizing our OutRunner technology.  We are that good.

 Did you
  During the past 30 years, there have been
nearly 70,000 Span Tech conveyors installed worldwide and that it is very normal
for our conveyors
to run 20 years or more with no little to no maintenance?  No other conveyor
manufacturer comes even
close.  Why would you buy anything else? 

Now you have a real option to replace or upgrade your
aging and “expensive to operate” FlexLink Alpines or maybe you simply have a new idea to
introduce an
accumulator to reduce downtime as a buffer between processes.  The new OutRunner
Alpine accumulation conveyor is your
  We can provide any length, width and tier count to meet your
requirements and we do this completely without transfers.  Our OutRunner technology enables
us to run a
continuous chain and drive every half tier, thereby guaranteeing low and equal chain tension
the entire system.  There is virtually nothing to maintain and nothing to go wrong other
than periodic
greasing of the main drive shaft bearings (we can automate that too!).  The innovative
system design
easily accommodates servo stepper motors for precise indexing if required.   No other alpine
accumulation conveyor has this
baked-in capability.  We can also custom build special chain carriers for any shaped
The possibilities are endless.


It will take whatever you feed it and move it up or down at an incline angle of up to 70 degrees. You can feed varying shaped products one after the other with no changeover. The upper belt simply takes the shape of the product on the lower belt and gently holds it in place as it travels up or down the Topper. There is nearly no limit to possible elevation changes and we have built Topper Lifts in excess of one metre wide. We recommend an upper limit of 50 pounds per product moved and normally require a gap equal the product length between products (this helps form the pocket). There is no need to worry about damaging delicate products. We have an active installation that is running facial tissues without absolutely no carton deformation. Our Topper Lifts are made with standard Span Tech componentry so the cost is approximately the same price as buying two standard conveyors. It’s simple and it works.

 Our customers consider our conveyors as
long term assets.  They
are so easily re-configurable that they lend themselves to flexible
manufacturing.  When you
production process changes, you can easily re-configure the conveyors to meet
the requirements of
the new process.  For example, it takes about 15 minutes to fully change the
drive from left hand
drive to right hand drive with no additional parts and only a couple of hand
tools.  When
you buy our conveyor, you buy it for life.

Our high-speed switch divides and merges while
maintaining product pitch and it is absolutely “jam proof”.   Others have tried but all of
competitors’ switches are subject to jamming.  Need to split product flow while maintaining
product pitch? It’s what we designed our high-speed switch to do – up to 150 switches per
minute.  In
addition, we have high-speed switches splitting product flow with chain speeds of up to 200

Product is transferred
along a series of sliding carriers, each of which slides freely on a pair of stainless steel
rods.  Carrier rods are supported between and driven by a pair of our MonoSpan conveyor
Once the flow is split, the product pitch in each output lane will be two times the
original pitch
for a 1-to-2 lane switch, three times the original pitch for a 1-to-3 lane switch, etc.
Configurations include:  1:2, 1:3, 1:4, 2:4 and 2:6 lane switching, converging and sorting
applications.  The product will exit at with the same orientation at which it entered.  Our
are rated for continuous, 24 hours/day operation.  They are designed for both rigid and

  Span Tech Canada uses the latest in design
software to quickly
model your conveyors in 3D.  We can draw complex conveyors in minutes and
usually turn quotes around
the same day.  Plus, we can provide a CAD drawing and full price break down with
evey quote.  We
leave nothing to chance and you get the best price every time.

Our retractable conveyors are designed to perform
millions of trouble-free retracts. Retract widths and lengths are highly configurable.
Retract mechanism
offered in electric timing belt or pneumatic configurations.


 Did you
  Span Tech conveyors are the quietest
running conveyors in
industry.  Our typical conveyor runs at or below 45dBA.  To put this in
perspective, 40 dBA is the
typical noise level you find in a library.  Recently, one of our customers
switched their noisy
table top chain conveyors over to Span Tech for the sole reason that the entire
department was able
to eliminate the need for hearing protection on the plant floor.

We love our wedge conveyors.  They are easy to build
from standard Span Tech components and can gently elevate/lowerate cans, cartons, tubes,
jars and much
more.  Because our wedge modular packaging conveyors are made from our standard product line, they are priced very
competitively as
compared to purpose built systems.  Plus, Span Tech reliability is baked into every wedge we
