Apron feeders

An apron feeder, or plate conveyor renders one of the most superior conveying technologies for sharp-edged or high-density materials that have a significant impact when landing from height on the conveyor surface. This includes cuts, impacts, punctures, and any other wear and tear. Example materials involve minerals from quarries and other heavy industries such as coal handling, fall pipe vessels and side stone installations for example with graniteconstruction and demolition recycling or scrap.

Other names for a plate conveyor you might come across are hinged steel belt, metal belt conveyor, and slat conveyor, but the principle of conveying on steel plates remain the same.


NM Heilig designs, builds, and installs many applications for both horizontal and diagonal transport and both stationary and mobile units with (optional) features including:

  • durable steel or stainless steel for heavy duty applications
  • continuous operations with low-maintenance
  • low-speed applications
  • variable speed applications (feeding during the process)
  • ‘walking floor’ applications in bunkers
