What Are

The Benefits Of

Material Handling

Conveyors?


The conveyor systems are a type of mechanical handling equipment that transports materials from one location to another. It is mostly used in the transportation of heavy or outsized equipment. They are very popular with manufacturers for its quick and efficient transportation of a wide variety of materials that are found in the packaging industries. There are several different types of conveying systems that is used by different types of industries. It is an excellent replacement for human labor of having to move one object to another place which would take more time and not to mention energy.

 

The industries that use this handling systems the most would be, the automotive, aerospace, agricultural, food processing, bottling and canning and packaging industries. There are many factors that need to be understood when choosing the right conveyor system. An obvious factor would be to know how it will be used. Some of the specific areas that need to be considered are transportation, sorting and accumulation, size of the material, and where the loading and delivering points will be. Because the simple truth is that this will be the lifeline of a company that needs to work with maximum efficiency.

 

In order to keep things going smoothly the company that operates such mechanical handling systems needs to follow regular inspections, closely watching the motors and gears, keeping a ready stock of spare parts and then finally having trained personnel to keep watch.

 

In order to increase the service life you need to choose the right conveyor equipment, and doing regular and proper maintenance because a system that is designed properly and well maintained can last a long time. There are basically 4 things that one needs to look out for in order to keep them from breaking down too often.

 

  • Bad take-up adjustment; this has to do with the chain take- up device which ensures that the chain is pulled tight as it leaves the unit. As wear occurs, chains eventually become loose which will affect the operation.
  • Lack of Lubrication; this is an obvious one, if the chain bearings are not lubricated then the load on the chain can double.
  • Contamination; powder, paint, acid or any type of alkaline fluids will contribute in the deterioration of the parts.
  • Product handling; Even in conveyor systems that are designed to handle many parts, it is always good to check and see if a new product is fit for use on the system.

 

Material handling conveyors are used to automate handling processes-- for example manufacturing, packaging, assembly and filling. There are many types of material handling systems, which include modular conveyors, flexible conveyors and automated assembly conveyor systems. Conveyors help to improve the rate of production efficiency through increasing throughput, line production and system uptime while at the same time reducing the cost of manual handling. These material handling systems are used to accumulate, elevate, distribute, divert, turn, flip, rotate, push, merge or wipe off products in different processes of manufacturing.

 

The industries that use this handling systems the most would be, the automotive, aerospace, agricultural, food processing, bottling and canning and packaging industries. Material handling conveyors are used to automate handling processes-- for example manufacturing, packaging, assembly and filling.
