See the list of my top 3 conveyor systems currently on the market, and make your own choice, of course.
After the industrial revolution, more industries came into existence. Considering that they continued to expand in size, the scope of work and list of activities, they require automated systems that will help reduce cost, increase speed and reduce the production cycle.
The innovation of conveyor systems came as a relief to many of these industries.
These flexible, sophisticated, efficient and eco-friendly systems are currently serving in different economic segments from food and beverage, airport bagging, automotive industries – and many others. Conveyor systems have played a significant role in making complex operations simpler and increasing industrial output.
They have witnessed a transformation, evolving from traditional to more flexible systems suitable for the current industrial structure.
However, the conventional conveyor systems continue to dominate in the various industries due to their effectiveness and circumspection.
Keep on reading to find out what my top 3 choices are.
These types of systems are used in industries for handling bulk material all over the world.
Their reliability and ability to use little energy have made them the logical choice for moving materials anywhere. Also, they're capable of handling bulk solid materials ranging from large pieces of ore to dusty chemicals.
Compared to other methods, the systems are great because they are highly resistant to corrosion or abrasion. Modern belt systems have shifted from the traditional use of the link-belt and now incorporate latest CAD applications.
These systems are suited for automated transversal and longitudinal conveyance of products. They are used on goods or products with stable surface – especially those that are large, hot or heavy.
Their robust design enables them to be deployed in areas where belt and roller conveyor systems can’t be used. Chain conveyor systems can be monitored at desired transport unit points using sensors thus allowing control of the flow of materials along the chain.
These systems are composed of several chains that are interlinked and driven by chain wheels.
As a product of modern innovation and technology, they represent the new generation of conveying systems in the conveyor market.
They are ideal for handling various products from railway engine bearing units, to hard disk drives. They have the versatility and strength to work efficiently in a broad category of applications and industries.
They offer the highest level of flexibility permitting extensions and modifications. They're refined yet robust design allows trouble free operations and flexible placement of separation and stops.
The systems are available as either single track or twin depending on the production requirements.
