Train your employees on conveyor operations, equipment, maintenance and safety with Foundations™.

In Foundations™, Martin Engineering has compiled decades of experience working with industrial conveyor systems and made their knowledge and insights available through a comprehensive multi-stage training program. Starting with the basics of belt conveyors, their components and safety practices, Foundations™ takes your employees through three levels of understanding, advancing to operations and maintenance training, followed by advanced training on improving performance, controlling dust and extending service life. Foundations™ is available in live seminar or online formats.

In 1991, Martin published the first edition of the Foundations™ Book, an invaluable reference for anyone working extensively with conveyor systems. The fourth edition, published in 2009, includes the most up-to-date content on material handling, including how to control fugitive material and airborne dust, belt performance evaluation, belt cleaning and more.
