If height differences between machines interrupt a production line, this costs time, money, and resources. With these three possibilities from Montech AG, you can overcome unwanted height differences.  

The smoother a production line runs, the more efficient it is. If a production line is disrupted, immediate action is required in order not to lose a lot of money and time. Instead of just reacting to disturbing factors, you should eliminate them, advises Montech AG. Montech specializes in the industrialization and standardization of state-of-the-art, unusual belt conveyors, transfer systems, and innovative aluminum framing systems. It offers various options for preventing interruptions due to height differences between machines – from inclined belt conveyors with belt studs to lifts to the KLT buffer system. 

Inclined belt conveyors with belt studs

If your production line carries small plastic or metal parts, an inclined belt with belt studs is the best choice for this purpose. Such a solution is a simple and cost-effective way to automate manual work, and thus, in the long run, it’s a smart economic investment. Because it can save time, money, and resources, the initial costs pay off quickly. Another advantage: An inclined belt creates space by using not only the width and length of a room, but also its height; machines set up in a narrower space create space for other things. In addition, an inclined belt conveyor is flexible. It can be easily removed from the production line – without modification or attachments – and used elsewhere.


If space is at a premium, a lift can be a good solution. Such a system offers a little more luxury than an inclined belt conveyor. With a pneumatically driven lift solution, workpieces travel autonomously from one level to the next in an endless loop. A lift is not only elegant, it also saves space by making optimal use of the production area. And in addition to the flexibility and variability in main assembly and on the manufacturing line, a lift also provides easy and direct access to the production cells. 

KLT buffer system 

If no electric drive is desired, Montech AG recommends the use of a buffer system with roller conveyors. Such a system also connects different levels and is particularly suitable for transporting products from A to B. What’s especially practical about the space-saving system is that it minimizes the susceptibility to errors and reduces time losses in production. And if a company should want to automate later on, that’s not a problem either: Montech AG also offers the KLT buffer system with driven belt conveyors and, if desired, automates it with lifts.
