Conveyor Manufacturers – Automated Conveyor Systems
If moving products is a challenge for your business, Ultimation has the solution. We’ve been one of the leading conveyor manufacturers for over 30 years. Our automated systems take the pain out of lifting, carrying, and storage. This helps employees avoid injuries and increases productivity. Conveyors simplify product loading and unloading and reduce accidental damage. Our solutions can provide part storage buffers, pass through ovens and supply parts to and from industrial robots. Conveyors make material handling more efficient.
Our name, Ultimation, was born from the vision that we could become the “Ultimate in Automation”. We supply standardized equipment and custom turn-key engineered solutions for specific applications.

and many others
Regardless of the size of your material handling needs, Ultimation can provide a conveyor solution for you! We work with companies as large as the leading automotive brands to small businesses. We’re located in South East Michigan with a great supply base and engineering talent pool. Our geographic focus is the design, build and installation of systems throughout the Americas.
Productivity Solutions, Made in USA
Our team members include conveyor experts as well as general industrial specialists. Ultimation’s leadership team have decades of experience running conveyor manufacturers. We also have key employees that have run assembly plants. This helps us understand our customers’ needs for productivity. If you need a complex industrial automation solution, we can provide that. But sometimes simpler solutions like gravity conveyors or powered roller conveyors are better. Either way, you can trust our team to share the benefits of industrial conveyors and automation solutions.
We bring together the Top Brands in Material Handling
Ultimation’s in-house manufacturing and design team can do it all. But sometimes the best solutions involve integrating components from other leading manufacturers. Our relationships with other leading brands in the industrial conveyor space include:
Jervis B Webb / Daifuku. Ultimation is the largest integrator of Webb overhead conveyors. Webb equipment is the “gold standard” for power and free conveyors Itoh Denki MDR conveyors. These innovative motor driven roller conveyors are the ‘go to’ solution for distribution centers. Interroll is another leading European MDR supplier. Ultimation provides ‘quick ship’ modules of conveyor with Interroll motors. Interlake Mecalux is our partner for material handling rack and storage solutions. We also integrate ASRS (Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems) with Mecalux
Worried about connecting it all together? Most of our equipment comes to you either already networked or network-ready. Connecting to factory information systems is becoming a common requirement. We work with most of the major providers. Allen Bradley and Rockwell Automation are our electrical hardware choices for many systems. All our major machinery systems include a remote monitoring solution. That enables us to help troubleshoot and optimize your line with remote access.
When developing a handling system for a large factory, there’s no room for error. We understand there’s a tight time slot. The installation of every component must go together exactly as needed.
Innovative Virtual Mechanical Design
Computing power is enabling us to design and test our conveyors in a virtual world. Before we cut steel for your project your conveyor or automation system is full tested. We design all our standard products with the latest 3D tools. This includes stress testing, bending, flexing and durability testing of the design. We can see how your load will move on the conveyor, and identify any challenges. Many conveyor systems manufacturers can build conveyors but few can match our virtual design process.
To ensure projects run smoothly, we can also create a virtual factory using SolidWorks 3D CAD. We can incorporate 3D models from our own equipment and other conveyor manufacturers. This enables us to test alternative layouts, assess ergonomics and consider installation approaches. We then can show our customers renderings of near photograph-like images. This show you what your conveyor system will look like before production begins. That allows for new ideas and improvements that would not otherwise be possible.
