For more than 60 years PRAB has been developing material handlingchip and fluid management and wastewater treatment solutions that keep your business moving. That’s why you’ll find more than 4,500 PRAB installations in the world's leading OEMs and suppliers. Each installation is an idea that is a solution to specific conveyance needs. Each delivers expected performance results, guaranteed.

And while PRAB has solved thousands of conveyance and chip and fluid management problems, our engineers and manufacturing staff will not pull an idea of the shelf and give it to you. Your solution starts by listening to what you need and then developing an idea that moves and/or modifies your material. It starts by addressing the problems or challenges you face in your process. The opportunities you have to develop new products or enter new markets. So we get to know your process and your goals. For example:

  • Do you need to automate systems and improve productivity?
  • Are you trying to improve profitability by increasing the value of your scrap metal or reclaim and reuse expensive coolants and cutting fluids?
  • Do you need to ensure the health and safety of your workers?
  • Are you working to enhance the environmental impact of your manufacturing process and make your plant greener?
  • What type of materials must you move? Aluminum, cast iron, brass, steel, alloys, magnesium, other?
  • Do you need to recycle and reuse wastewater?

Then we come back with a solution – one that offers the flexibility and versatility in design that gets the results YOU want, not the results our previous customers needed. Then we let you take the idea for a material test to make sure it’s the right solution. Once we have your design approval, we will manufacture and ship it to meet your timeline, so you have your PRAB solution when you need it.

Your PRAB equipment comes with our Performantee™ that you will be fully satisfied with its performance results. You will have our support from installation to future questions with our technical team. So you get timely answers to keep your business flowing.

We have sales representatives ready to help in offices around the world. Contact us or submit a request for a proposal today.

There's no margin for costly waste in your business. So turn the metal and fluid by-products of your operation into a profit center that keeps your plant and the environment safer.

Whether you need to automate metal handling, filter and reuse wastewater, reduce labor costs, reclaim and recycle expensive cutting fluids/coolants or maximize return on recycling metals - you want a solution. And that’s what PRAB delivers with a Performantee that assures you will get the results you want – guaranteed.

You will work with engineers who continually find better ways to move and process materials. With more than 4,500 installations for the world's leading OEMs and suppliers, PRAB offers one of the most extensive lines of conveyors and material handling equipment in the world to meet your needs.
