The Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association (CEMA) has recently released its latest book: “CEMA Application Guide for Unit Handling Conveyors.” According to the association, the publication is the only in-depth guide for design details and application guidance for unit handling conveyors in the world. It contains information on all Unit Handling Conveyors, Pallets, Cartons, Totes, Monorail, and more. This book is a must-have reference book for both novice and experienced engineers, universities, distributors, OEMs, consultants, maintenance personnel, and end users of this machinery.

CEMA developed this book in collaboration with the most established and respected companies in the conveying industry. It was designed to be a useful technical reference tool similar to the world renowned CEMA Manual “Belt Conveyors for Bulk Materials,” now in its Sixth Edition. The use of this book in conjunction with current CEMA Unit Handling standards gives an engineer the necessary tools to design and apply unit handling equipment.

The information contained in this book is presented with the intent of educating material handling engineers about current design and application of unit handling product and its components. The content is arranged in chapters by product type first, followed by chapters for system design, followed by chapters for component design. Wherever possible, each of the product chapters is subdivided into the following sections that provide comprehensive details about each product: definition, design, application, accessories, technical data, maintenance considerations, and safety considerations. Additionally, there are many graphs, charts, and pictures to enhance the understanding of topics discussed. As always, the responsibility for the ultimate safety, reliability, and functionality of any conveyor system rests with those who design and build it.

You can purchase the book at CEMA’s Web site for $250 at http://www.cemastore.com/shop/
