Each piece must be properly sized to accommodate the capacity requirements of the machine that is feeding the conveyor as well as the machine that is being fed from the conveyor. Potential growth is a very important aspect to consider when sizing material handling equipment. It is wise to size your equipment with your capacity projections you see down the road. It is often less expensive to upsize your material handling equipment up front than to upsize your processing machinery. This will allow for a much easier transition into larger processing machinery.
