How our overhead-conveyor filling systems work
The overhead-conveyor filling system consists of conveyor belts that are installed above one another in perpendicular fashion. The bottom conveyor belt is transported along a crane track profile by means of flanged wheels. This means that the product can be placed precisely where it is needed in the hall. Not only does the filling system transport the desired product effectively, but it also ensures efficient storage capacity. It is also possible to configure a filling pattern so that the product is stored as optimally as possible when the hall is being filled. This results in a homogeneous product.
Use of our overhead-conveyor filling systems
The overhead filling system for the warehouse has been designed in such a way that the system can handle a range of different materials (free-flowing and rigid flowing bulk materials) in a variety of ways. Examples of materials are clay, peat, grains, coal, wood, and woodchips, etc. The overhead filling system can be used by storage and transshipment companies and by production companies operating in the bulk handling sector.
Advantages of our overhead-conveyor filling systems
The ARCO overhead-conveyor filling systems offers many advantages:
- The system ensures gentle material handling;
- There is no segregation;
- It is possible to set the system in such a way that the product is stored optimally;
- Due to the top filling system, the storage hall can be reached completely by shovels etc;
- The overhead-conveyor filling system is suitable for high filling capacity;
- Homogenizing the product;
- Can be integrated into existing storage halls;
- Fill patterns can be set per product;
- The system is low in energy consumption.
Is the overhead-conveyor filling system not quite the most suitable solution? ARCO likes to think along with you! Also take a look at our dosing bunkers, dosing scraping systems, container filling systems and big-bag unloading stations. Together we look for the most suitable and most efficient solution, fitting in the existing line or designed for the new line.

What our customers have to say
‘When you both believe in solutions, great results come naturally.’
‘ARCO has simplified our production process. Thanks to the comprehensive package of services and the customized solutions, ARCO is the ideal supplier for us.’
‘Looking back on this project, we have to say that the cooperation with ARCO was very smooth. We joined forces and implemented the best solution for our production line. Where we previously used many manual and labour-intensive processes, we now have a fully automated system that enables us to work very efficiently.’
‘Thanks to ARCO’s installation, we can do the same work with fewer operators. The system ensures a faster throughput of products and the best possible conditions for our operators. ’
‘Because we worked hand in hand with ARCO, everything was developed in consultation and the mega silo bunker perfectly suits our needs. It was an enjoyable collaboration that produced good results.’
‘We greatly appreciated ARCO’s ability to respond quickly. But not only that, they demonstrated exceptional creativity when devising the solution and the various test set-ups that they developed to test the design. The close cooperation between ARCO and ourselves facilitated the successful implementation of this particular packaging line.’
‘We know ARCO as a no-nonsense company that believes in workable and affordable solutions. This is what sets ARCO apart from other companies. They also have all the necessary knowledge in-house to create a strong and efficient line. We don’t know what the future holds, but we will certainly be happy to work together again.’
‘ARCO’s weighing line has had a major impact on our production. Our new system cuts product losses by up to 6%. It was a successful project and a rewarding collaboration.’
‘We were looking for a dosing system that could fill containers with clay and also ensure an even distribution. When emptying the containers, we are now able to deliver a good mixture of the ground clay to the factory. Thanks to ARCO’s dosing system, there are far fewer fluctuations in the clay, which in turn improves the quality.’
