Chain Conveyors and Pallet Handling

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Wednesday, 28 August 2019 at 10:53:46

Filed under: Chain Driven, Videos, Industry

Where pallet handling is involved, normally chain conveyors are predominantly used.Chain conveyors are perfect for either very heavy loads, or wide and awkward loads where the base may not be flat (pallets often have feet on the bottom). These are often considered to be the best type of roller conveyor for handling pallets. A chain conveyor is made up of chains that run within guides that carry the load.

Pallet Handling With a Pallet Roller Conveyor

A Chain Driven Roller Conveyor which is used for pallet handling is the most heavy duty type of powered conveyor. It is usually used where items such as pallets, drums and heavy items need to be moved around and items are normally fed onto the conveyor by machinery or fork truck as they are extremely heavy.

Chain Driven Roller Conveyors used for moving pallets and similar materials must be up to heavy duty usage. They normally consist of sprocketed and thick walled steel rollers, with a chain mechanism, a fully enclosed side frame and an externally mounted motor.

Rollers on Pallet Handling Systems

Pallet conveyors or chain driven roller conveyors are generally constructed from powder coated mild steel, although other finishes such as bright size plate can be provided if this is requred.

Conveyors for Food Production

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Wednesday, 28 August 2019 at 10:45:24

Filed under: Conveyors, PVC/PU, Plastic

Conveyors that are used in the food industry have to be designed and manufactured to specific standards. One of the major requirements within the food industry is that the food conveyor must be very easy to clean for obvious hygiene and food standards reasons.

Easy to Clean Food Conveyors

Being "easy to clean" means that there must be easy access to all surfaces, whether they are in direct contact with the food product or not. A well designed food conveyor will offer easy cleaning access to all areas, and it will also require minimum maintenance.


 

PVC/PU Food Conveyors

The surface finish of a food conveyor is also very important, which is why PVC/PU belt conveyors (including modular belt conveyors) are often used on processing, assembly and packing lines in the food industry. A food conveyor with a rough surface would hold on to food deposits, and no matter how small these are, these would encourage the growth of bacteria.

Mobility Engineering Designs Food Conveyors

Food processing can include all types of applications from raw and cooked meats, poultry and fish to packaged meals and confectionery, so custom built food conveyors are needed and the team at Mobility Engineering is highly experienced in producing food conveyors for these applications. One of our longstanding clients is Aimia Foods in Merseyside and they have been happy to provide us with an excellent testimonial.

The Magic Magnetic Conveyor

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Wednesday, 28 August 2019 at 10:31:24

Filed under: Conveyors, Magnetic, Videos, Technical

At Mobility Engineering we can produce, design and manufacture bespoke magnetic belt conveyor systems for your business. A magnetic conveyor can transport any kind of ferrous metal.

Magnetic conveyors ensure the total precision and control of magnetic materials being moved along a production line. When working with ferrous metals, having a conveyor that uses an industrial magnetic belt to control the position of parts and components for processing is extremely useful.

We Will Customise Your Magnetic Conveyor For Maximum Efficiency

You may have a specific metal product that you are looking to move or process and there is no one solution for every client. A client who will be processing and moving nails, bolts, nuts and screws will not require the same magnetisation as a company who is moving larger and heavier magnetic parts. Each magnetic conveyor that we manufacture will have unique magnetic chips which are configured to handle the required products.

Magnetic conveyors are created using magnets in the bed of the conveyor. This allows the magnets to hold onto any ferrous parts being transported and as the magnets are placed with precision for the process they are required for, they will provide excellent magnetic holding power.

The magnets will also be designed so that they are strong enough to hold onto parts on both horizontal and vertical conveyors, so that the magnetic conveyor can be used for transporting up and down elevations.

Conveyors for Bottling

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Wednesday, 21 August 2019 at 16:47:10

Filed under: Conveyors, PVC/PU, Plastic, Videos, Applications

Throughout the summer months in the UK the demand for cold drinks, from soft drinks to ciders and beers can be high, particularly when there are may also be sporting events involved. It is a fact that the sales of cold beers and other drinks does rise for instance when it is the World Cup or even Wimbledon.

Mobility Engineering have worked with many beverage producers to improve and speed up their bottling facilities - all for the good of the thirsty British public, and we thought we would have a look back at some of our bottling designs for different producers.

The Accumulating Belt Conveyors

Accumulation tables are required when large quantities of empty bottles are being loaded onto a system.

The bottles can then be gathered and fed along the system to be filled, capped and labelled.

If you are looking for any kind of specialist conveyor or a materials handling system call us on 01925 755923 or contact us via our website, we are always ready to have a friendly chat.

The Boom or Telescopic Conveyor

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Monday, 29 July 2019 at 16:52:25

Filed under: Conveyors, Videos, News, New Ideas

Telescopic belt conveyors are multi functional conveyors which are used in many different areas for carrying products, mainly in the loading and offloading of parcels onto vehicles such as vans and lorries. 

Loading and unloading of vehicles can be performed easily using a boom conveyor's extension and retraction parts which can move both forward and in reverse. 

Mobility Engineering was asked to design and install and boom conveyor or "the parcelator" for a client who had loading and unloading requirements. The team has designed the boom conveyor (which can be seen in our video) which will match or exceed any other brand of conveyor in terms of build quality, design, functionality and longevity. We can produce different models of the parcelator to suit different clients, and the conveyor can be adapted to have 600 mm or 800 mm wide belts, different base lengths and designs, creating many different combinations to suit particular clients.

Modular Belt & Slat Merge Conveyor System

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Thursday, 25 July 2019 at 12:46:56

Filed under: Conveyors, Videos, Case Studies

At Mobility Engineering we always enjoy a challenge and this particular project required us to produce a system which could handle heavy duty items for the parcel handling industry.

We believe this is the first conveyor or this type to be produced, where there is a low-friction acetal slat chain conveyor with an eight lane merge unit. Our video shows this unique piece of equipment in action! It really is very impressive to see it handling heavy duty products with ease.

Our client was delighted with the outcome and the bespoke design that we designed and manufactured to their required specifications.

Unique Mobility Slat Merge Conveyor

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Thursday, 04 July 2019 at 10:59:09

Filed under: Conveyors, Slat, Videos, Applications, Industry

One of our clients recently approached our team asking for a solution for the merging together of two loads from two telescopic belt conveyors.

The conveyor solution was also required to be able to handle heavy duty parcels.

Our design team put their heads together and came up with a unique design which is the Mobility Engineering Acetal Slat Merge Conveyor. We decided that we could re-engineer an "old school" design for a timing belt merge conveyor, but we would incorporate individual chains with acetal slats which are perfect for use with heavy loads.

Our client was delighted with the outcome and the unique design that we had developed especially for their unique requirements.
