This conveyor systems is designed and fabricated specifically to our customers requirements. Our conveyor systems are used to transfer product, initially by unloading stacked pallets & delivering them with ease & speed to operators on an automated supply & demand basis. This prevents the operators from vacating their work station, thus increasing productivity & ultimately increasing profit margins. Our conveyor systems are built to a very high specification making it very durable & reliable. Our conveyor systems can be built in Stainless Steel or Mild Steel depending on its application with either automatic or manual configuration controls to allow for all or part of the operating work stations to be utilized or not.
This automated conveyor systems was designed and fabricated for our client to meet the needs of a busy leek processing factory. Their requirement was to

Our design allowed for delivery of the product to be received by the operator directly and once the produce had been processed the conveyor systems would take the waste product away. This process reduced labour, thus reducing costs & eliminating the need for extra tables & pallets for loading waste and good product. The system works efficiently & smoothly.
- 13 metre conveyor systems for handling trays of leeks
The main in-take conveyor included a grip top PVC belt which is sensor controlled to deliver the trays to one of the five working stations, via the PLC controlled powered roller track. Once the product has been processed the finished goods trays are pushed forward onto the middle conveyor which is of modular belt construction & conveyed to the packaging machinery. The waste product is fed down a chute to the PVC belted conveyor situated at the bottom of the conveyor system. This takes the waste product out of the factory to its designated area.

- 40 metre long conveyor systems for handling spring onions
A buffer zone was incorporated at the beginning of the powered roller track to allow for the quick unloading of pallets & also prevention of starving the system, so operators were not left waiting for new produce to arrive. Once the operator had processed & bundled the spring onions, the good product would be placed in the top narrow conveyor, to then be fed to the wash system. The waste product would then be fed down a chute & conveyed away on the PVC belted conveyor system situated at the bottom of our unit & was fed to the main waste system. The empty crates are then placed in the top middle conveyor and fed back towards the loading area (the advantage being that forklifts are kept away from the operating stations).
We can also offer conveyor servicing, repairs and modifications.
