Any time a conveyor has been damaged and no longer runs, it will need to be repaired or replaced. For example, conveyors made of long extruded aluminum sidewalls will be costly to repair and may even need to be replaced.
Owning a conveyor built using short modular sidewalls allows you to repair by replacing the broken sidewalls. Repairing only the broken components on a conveyor can save you thousands of dollars.
There is a direct correlation between conveyor modularity and reducing conveyor maintenance costs. The more modularity there is with the conveyor, the easier it will be to repair. Therefore, purchasing a truly modular conveyor can reduce your overall conveyor maintenance costs by thousands of dollars.
