The CDM Difference Guide

The four pillars of what makes up the CDM Difference are: Long-Lasting Equipment The long lifespan of our equipment is what makes the decision to go with CDM cost-effective. When others eventually fail over time, CDM’s custom-made equipment will still be standing. Staff Expertise There’s no substitute for experience. Our decades of knowledge help us determine the right specs for […]

Prepaint Assemblies Can Have Major Influence Over Lower Warranty Claims

Warranty claims are headaches for everybody involved. It can be frustrating to return a dish at a restaurant, so imagine getting faulty bulk material handling equipment you waited for months to be made. That’s why we’re so proud that over the past two decades, we’ve only had 0.53% warranty claims on the custom equipment we’ve made. And the prepaint assembly […]

How Is QA/QC Handled When Every Project Is Custom-Made?

Quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) have always been a priority for CDM. However, we’ve seen a strong trend over the past decade in the requirements from clients associated with QA/QC – especially in capital projects. At CDM, our QA/QC procedure never changes, but the product is different because everything is made-to-order. That means whether it’s a screw conveyor […]

Discover the Benefits of the Durable Coating Process for Bulk Material Handling Equipment

Sandblasting and painting add more to bulk material handling equipment than just cosmetic benefits. There’s a lot going on during these all-important steps that not only adds to the appearance, but also can help extend the equipment’s lifespan. These steps are important in fighting the corrosion, abrasion, UV, etc. that could eventually wreak havoc on the equipment. Sandblasting removes all […]

Gates, Valves and Diverters Info Sheet

Slide gates offer several benefits for a bulk material facility. They can reduce downtime by temporarily stopping or by-passing material flow to provide proper maintenance to necessary downstream equipment. Valves can be easily adapted to equipment and work best for unrestricted flow of product. This makes them practical if all that’s needed is an open/closed valve – such as loadout […]

Custom Gates, Valves and Diverters Keep Production Moving

Equipment is expensive. That’s not exactly a ground-breaking revelation. Purchasing new bulk material handling equipment is a large investment – and one that’s often done begrudgingly. A plant spends money on equipment like gates, valves and diverters because they’re necessary for production. However, the initial price tag doesn’t tell the whole story. It doesn’t say how much maintenance will be put […]

How Pulp and Paper Plants Can Have Energy Independence

Independence is a wonderful feeling. In business, it’s a cost-effective strategy to keep matters in your own hands. Control what you can control. This is especially true when you have the power to provide the energy that your company runs on. Imposed costs from outside sources can cause serious headaches. For a pulp and paper plant, the use of hog […]

E-Commerce Makes Reliable Pulp and Paper Equipment a Must

The rise of technology has changed society’s habits. We are now more likely to open the front door to see brown Amazon packages instead of a bundled newspaper. E-commerce has become a trillion-dollar industry worldwide and has shown no signs of slowing down. Online shopping is popular because it’s easy and it doesn’t have hours of operation. You can place […]

Designing Reliable Screw Conveyors Demands Thorough Analysis of Materials

In a billion-dollar global manufacturing industry, where material handling is a critical part of the production process, any unplanned interruption to the daily operation can cost a business hundreds of thousands of dollars per hour in productivity. For a material handling operation that utilizes screw conveyors in its processes, reliability is the only thing between downtime and lost profitability. Just as there […]
