Conveyors are divided into two main families in the current culture:
• Hinged conveyors.
• Dredging conveyors.
The diversity of materials processed and the nature of the resulting chips put both types of conveyors operating limits that prevent their general use.
RBM has adapted to the dominant culture for a while, producing the model 9 conveyors (which are still in production on demand for simple applications). Then, RBM decided to develop a new generation of products that would eliminate the limits of the previous models: the A-I chip conveyors.
