Screw & Belt Conveyors & Bucket Elevators by Orthman Conveying Systems

In 1938, during the midst of the Great Depression, twenty-six year old Henry Orthman realized his dream of a better life. By that year he’d saved enough to buy a 160 acre farmland on which he grew alfalfa.

Yet it was tinkering with machinery and his willingness to recognize the value of an existing product: the 3 point mount, which carried his innovations to another level, eventually leading to the screw and belt conveyors, bucket elevators, and other Orthman products we know today. The interesting story of Orthman Manufacturing’s founding in 1963 can be found here.

At the start of the 21st Century, Orthman Conveying Systems was created to address demand for industrial material handling equipment. Manufacturing a wide range of screw conveyors, belt conveyors, bucket elevators, and discharge gates, they produce other components like augers, and drive shafts.

Orthman Conveyors: Built for Efficiency & Countless Applications

Orthman’s product achievements lie in dimension standardization in order to simplify selection. They are built with operational efficiencies that withstand demanding applications.

Knowing the characteristics of the material you want to convey is essential to choosing the best conveyors and delivery method. Orthman Conveying Systems offers an excellent material chart for reference.
