Biscuit Production Hopper and Conveyor

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Monday, 30 December 2019 at 14:35:11

Filed under: Conveyors, Videos, Industry, Technical

It's almost the New Year, and many of us will have plans to revamp our diets, after several weeks of binging on sweet treats and festive foods. So before the cupboards are emptied of biscuits and cakes we thought your might like to have a look at one of our previous projects for a client who produces of of the UK's favourite biscuits.

Once the biscuits have been baked they are quality checked and any which are substandard are dropped into a hopper. They then travel up an incline belt conveyor and through a metal check and are then sent either left or right, either rejected or sent to a granulating system. Once throught the granulating system they are then entered back into the production phase.

Have a look at this great conveyor system on our video, after all, who doesn't love to see biscuits!

Conveyors for the Furniture Industry

This is the time of year when we are seeing many advertisements on our TV channels for furniture stores, particularly those desiging and producing new sofas.

At Mobiity Engineering we were asked to produced a variety of conveyors to move around products for a well known furniture manufacturer at different stages of production within the factory, and we designed a series of gravity roller conveyors, lineshaft powered roller conveyors and modular belt conveyors that could be used to move furnishings along the production line.

Our video below shows the variety of different conveyors that can be combined together within a manufacturing space to support the production line processes.

Mobility Engineering UK Conveyors

Filed under: Conveyors, PVC/PU, Rollers, Gravity, Chain Driven, Lineshaft, Slat, Gravity Flex, Plastic, Magnetic, Business, History

We are conveyor experts. Whether you need development, design, manufacture or installation, our team know conveyors inside out. Our skillset allows us to provide our customers with cost effective seamless conveyor solutions backed up by a superb after sales service and spares.

At Mobility Engineering we are predominantly floor conveyor and automation manufacturers providing either one-off single products or a multiple of products to create the client's scheme. We are flexible in approach and can accommodate most conveying and moving requirements. Generally conveyors and conveyor systems can be broken down into two distinct divisions - powered and non-powered. Non-powered conveyors are gravity conveyors, therefore, relying on gravity to get from A to B (either horizontally, by human resources pushing, or via a decline, so the product moves under its own weight). Being non-powered means you simply cannot control the movement/flow. Powered conveyors, on the other hand, are much more reliable and versatile with regards control and process flow. Being powered, you are in control of how fast the product goes from A to B, plus it can have the added benefit of accumulation.

Powered conveyors are usually: 1) Belt Conveyor (Fabric), 2) Belt Conveyor - (Plastic Modular), 3) Powered Roller Conveyor (Lineshaft), 4) Powered Roller Conveyor (Chain Driven), 5) Slat Conveyor (Acetal - Plastic), 6) Slat Conveyor (Stainless Steel), 7) Chain Conveyor, 8) Magnetic Conveyor

We are always really happy to be involved in the early stages of your conveyor enquiry and help you find the best, most cost effective solution. That's what we do day in day out after all. Please give us as much detail as you can - we appreciate it may not be much to start with. We will then get some budgetry costings and ideas over to you. For friendly, professional advice, contact us or call 01925 755923.

Mini Wheel Mobile Conveyors

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Wednesday, 27 November 2019 at 10:44:56

Filed under: Gravity, Videos

At Mobility Engineering, our client projects can range from full factory fit outs to more bespoke, unique smaller conveyor projects.

We have recently been working with a well known brand within the food industry, who asked for a conveyor solution for the end of the production line. The conveyor was to carry the products, after boxing and printing had been completed on boxes of tea bags, and deliver them to the packing, boxing and palletising area of the warehouse, ready for the products to be despatched.

Have a look at how we designed mobile, mini wheel conveyors to fulfill this requirement. The conveyors were constructed of stainless steel with PVC wheels, and are easily movable around the warehouse as required.

Modular Belt Conveyors For Handling Boxes

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Thursday, 21 November 2019 at 12:00:40

Filed under: Conveyors, Plastic, Videos, Technical

Mobility Engineering's specialist conveyor team has worked with many leading household product manufacturing and packaging companies over the years, and you will find many of the products which have been processed on our conveyors in your supermarket when doing the weekly shop.

This is a great little video which shows a the roller topped belt carrying the boxes along the middle lane of the conveyor - this is the "happy lane" where products will be packaged and sent out the the retailers. If products are found to have any faults, these will be found in the right hand lane for rejection. If, at any time, the products need to be held back there are "blades" which can be used as a stop on all three lanes and the products will remain in place without any damage to them due to the roller topped belts.

Mobility Engineering Slat Conveyors

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Wednesday, 30 October 2019 at 16:31:16

Filed under: Slat, Plastic, Steel, Videos, Case Studies

Plastic slat conveyors are predominantly used, and are ideal in such industries as food and pharmaceuticals, where rapid speed and accuracy is of the utmost importance, plus they also have the ability to be washed down for hygiene purposes.

Plastic/Acetal Slat Conveyors are used more for the lighter products, and usually in the food/pharmaceutical industries, where narrow products, such as plastic tubs, yoghurt and ice cream pots, etc, are conveyed from various filling machines, through barcode readers and either straight to packing areas or straight into freezers, cool rooms or storage areas.

Steel Slat Conveyor Systems are predominantly used, and are ideal in such industries as food and pharmaceuticals, where rapid speed and accuracy is of the utmost importance, plus they also have the ability to be washed down for hygiene purposes.

Steel (usually stainless) slat conveyors are predominantly used for heavier industry, where the conveyor needs to be built to a very robust design, especially when handling heavy steel products such as automotive parts (presented to the conveyor via a robotic system), punched/pressed parts (from underneath machines), etc.

As they are generally situated in dirty and possibly wet conditions, the slats tend to be stainless, rather than mild steel, as their life expectancy would be greater.

Here are some our our latest slat conveyor designs at Mobility Engineering:

Edge Guiding Pneumatic Pusher Conveyor

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Wednesday, 30 October 2019 at 13:12:05

Filed under: Conveyors, Chain Driven, Videos, Technical

The team at Mobility Engineering was asked to design and build a powered roller conveyor with a pneumatic diverter, which would send various different sizes of sheet steel to the edge of the conveyor along a production line.

Chain Conveyors are predominantly used for either very heavy loads, very wide and awkward loads, or where the base is not suitable (not flat or firm - product/pallet/stillages may have feet underneath) to be handled on rollers.

Chain Conveyors are, in their simplest form, chains that sit and run within guides, that carry the load.

Instances where chain conveyors are used are conveyor systems for: Automotive handling (where clients are moving large and awkward automotive parts, car bodies, chassis, trucks, etc.), Industrial (radiators and other products which are particularly wide or heavy).
