CEMA is a trade association that has been serving the material handling industry since 1933. The Conveyor Equipment Manufacturer’s Association (CEMA) is considered “The Voice of the Conveyor Industry” in North and South America. CEMA is focused on creating and adhering to standards for safety and design of conveying equipment and components. CEMA members are companies that represent the leading designers, manufacturers and installers of conveyors, conveyor components and material handling systems.

CEMA member companies meet several times a year to create leading edge technology for an ever-changing industry and worldwide economy. Standards are created to better educate conveyor users on optimum design and safety during operation and maintenance. Screw and belt conveyors that are designed and manufactured to CEMA standards are very advantageous because the end user receives quality equipment designed to proven industry standards that utilize industry standard components.

KWS Manufacturing has been an active CEMA member since 1990. KWS designs screw and belt conveyors to CEMA standards whenever possible to ensure that the equipment features the latest industry best practices for safety, service life, ease of installation and maintainability. However, Engineers at KWS will exceed CEMA design standards when the application dictates, such as for heavy-duty conveyors for the chemical, environmental or mining industries. When CEMA is the standard, KWS is the solution!
