Alpine / Multiflex Conveyor

The Alpine serves dual roles in your production lines. The alpine transports product from one elevation to another, and it can also provide large area for accumulation to help you manage line flow. Our alpines are available in inclining and declining models, using either MatTop® or Multiflex chain. More...

Case Spiral Conveyor

The Alliance Industrial Case Spiral Conveyor is a new solution to an old problem. The Case Spiral Conveyor serves the same function as a traditional inclining or declining alpine without the large footprint. Our spiral conveyors use a specially-designed, sideflexing chain that allows them to handle virtually any product. We also design units to handle mass flow product, such as nested bottles and small containers. Built tough, Alliance tough. More...

Case Switch

The Alliance Industrial Case Switch combines the function of our Lane Changers with the design principles of our Continuous Motion Diverters to create a lane changing machine that can run continuously at high rates of speed. The Case Switch distributes cases to multiple lines of conveyor based on downstream demand without having to stop product flow to switch lanes. Currently we offer Case Switches in 1-to-2, 2-to-1, and 2-to-2 configurations. The units come with a complete sensor package, including jam photoeyes, safety interlocks on all doors, and clear to shift sensors. We can also provide a control panel to make the Case Switch a stand-alone unit. More...

Dynamic Transfers

Dynamic Transfers provide a 90° change of direction in product flow without using flex chain. The product is pushed by line pressure along a curved guide from one chain onto another chain running perpendicular to the previous chain. A dynamic transfer uses a special intermediate chain lying parallel to the infeed chain to bridge the gap between the infeed and discharge chains. The intermediate chain also eliminates the problem found with traditional dead turns of stranding product on a dead plate if there is not enough back pressure. More...

High-Speed Case Rotator

Our High Speed Case Rotator will turn your product case 90° to facilitate any downstream handling of the case such as overwrapping. The Alliance system uses servo controls for accurate, precise control over your package with guaranteed repeatability. Please contact us for more information.

Inclines & Declines

Alliance Industrial offers its customers incline and decline conveyors designed to handle cases and packs and eliminate slippage. Inclines and declines are ideal for use in operations where cases are constructed on one floor and packed on another. Our use of friction chain prevents product from slipping while traveling up or down an incline, and it allows us to stop the conveyor and start again without causing product to slip. We also offer bidirectional units that both incline and decline, which can be used in specialized applications, such as loading and unloading trucks at the same station. More...

Lane Changers

Our Lane Changers redirect full cases, empty cases, shells, and loose product across multiple lanes of conveyor. A Lane Changer can be used to combine multiple infeed lanes into a single discharge lane or distribute a single infeed lane to multiple discharge lanes. Lane Changers are also commonly used to take product from one or more infeed lanes and allocate it across multiple discharge lanes based on downstream demand for product. Our Lane Changers are available in a wide range of configurations based on your needs, with electrical packages available to make a unit completely stand-alone. More...

Side Grip Elevators/Lowerators

Our Sidegrip Lowerators and Elevators are used to carry product from one elevation at infeed to a different elevation at discharge. Elevators discharge at a higher elevation than they infeed, while Lowerators discharge at a lower elevation than they infeed. All units are built with on-the-fly adjustment for varying product widths using a hand lever. We can build an Elevator or Lowerator to whatever elevation requirements you have. They may be simple in concept and purpose, but our units will give you rock solid performance day after day. More...

Side Grip OTE Transfer

The purpose of our Side Grip Over-the-End Transfers is to provide a conveyor line a place to clear out down or broken product and loose debris from the conveyor chain. A common application is to use the over-the-end transfer on a glass line downstream of a bottle squeezer. Good bottles pass through the squeezer and are carried across the gap, while defective bottles shatter and the broken glass goes over the end of the conveyor and into cullet conveyor for recycling. More...

Side Grip Walk-Thru

Our Walk-Thrus provide customers a way to improve movement across their facility.  The Walk-Thru carries product overhead, creating a pathway tall and wide enough for facility staff or even forktrucks to pass underneath.  Several units can be used in conjunction to create aisleways that run the length of a facility.  The Walk-Thru is adjustable on-the-fly for varying product dimensions, making job changes quick and easy. More...

Tilted Slow-Down Modules

Our Tilted Slow Down Modules are used to help our customers smoothly change product flow from single file to mass flow. Slow Down Modules consist of a series of chains running at successively slower speeds, and are typically jack-driven from the main conveyor drive shaft. We frequently tilt our slow down modules minimize pressure as the product nests. Tilting the modules also helps by causing downed product to roll off the side of the module into down product pans on the side. Slow Down Modules are ideal for use after product is individually processed by production machinery, such inspection machines, fillers, and labelers; going back to mass flow saves floor space and reduces line speeds. More...

Vertical Case Elevator

The new Alliance Case Elevator will take your package to new heights! The Case Elevators carry cartons or cases with two parallel flighted chains driven by dual brake motors. The brake motors stop the chain/flights to wait for cartons at the pick up area. A sensor detects cartons and indexes upward or downwards (depending on application). This unit accommodates carton or case sizes according to customer specifications at up to 15 packages per minute. Our robust design and conservative engineering calculations ensure the elevator will run for many years with very little maintenance. More...
