Gravity Roller Conveyor Lines

One of the main types of conveyors, and indeed one of the simplest, is the gravity roller conveyor, and here is a great video showing one of the latest gravity roller conveyor projects completed by Mobility Engineering. Also below, we have included a little bit more information about gravity roller conveyors, how they work and their uses in industry.

Gravity Roller Conveyor Lines

Gravity Roller Conveyor Systems are used in such instances as conveying trays, slave boards, cardboard boxes, plastic totes, etc., for either, simply transporting from A to B, or for use in Kanban scenarios.

As the title states, gravity means just that, using the force of gravity to move products. There is no power, hence it is simple and extremely cost effective. You can either free wheel the products manually (horizontally) or include a slight decline to allow a fall over a certain distance.

Because Gravity Roller Conveyors are extremely modular they can be utilised in many ways. They can form a crucial role when linked to the end of a powered system, for such purposes as packing and accumulation, or they can actually form full production lines, such as PC Assembly, Bedding, Industrial Batteries, etc

Filed under: PVC/PU, Business, Videos, Applications, Case Studies

Our design team at Mobility Engineering enjoy working with longstanding clients and one our most recent projects for one of them was to design, install and supply a decline, moduar belt merge conveyor system.

Our video illustrates how we work together with our clients from our initiial meeting and discussions, to our technical team being involved in the actual design, and finally to our engineering and installation team. Have a look at our video, this is a great example of all of our specialists working together, alongside a happy customer.

Pallet Transfer Chain Conveyor and Turntable

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Monday, 19 November 2018 at 14:19:16

Filed under: Conveyors, Chain Driven, Business, Videos, Case Studies

One of our clients approached us and asked us to design a chain pallet cross transfer and turntable unit to complement their chain driven powered roller and pallet conveyor systems. 

The video shows how our specialist engineering team test out their design at our Cheshire factory, before the machinery is installed at the customer's premises. This particular design was required to move pallets which could weigh a thousand kilos and upwards.

Stainless Steel Modular Belt Conveyor With Goalposts

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Monday, 19 November 2018 at 14:00:36

At Mobility Engineering we are always looking at innovative and bespoke designs, which will suit an individual client's requirements.

One of our clients required a stainless steel modular belt conveyor which needed to have goalpost design lane splitters. This would enable the client to use filling heads located on either side of the conveyor, enabling them to fill the conveyor quickly and efficiently.

Packaging Systems and Conveyors

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Monday, 29 October 2018 at 11:02:41

Filed under: Conveyors, Business, Videos, Case Studies

With recent advances in machine and conveyor system technology, packaging designers have many options available to them  when designing packaging and applications.

The box orientation changer device in our video was designed and built at our in-house factory in Cheshire. The system is being used where packaging needs to be printed when it is in a particular orientation.

The video below shows a box orientation changer device where boxes being moved along a conveyor need to be printed in a particular orientation. They can, of course, be used in other scenarios apart from printing. 

Advanced packaging machines and systems incorporate electronics and controls that are necessary to provide the motion required. In many cases the systems have to deal with irregularly shaped boxes and sensors and robotics are required. Even products packaged in plastic bags may need to have stop-start motions built into the system or product may have to reverse, speed up or accumulate.

In order to carry out all of these different manoevers the control system for the conveyor may been servos, switches, encoders,sensors and also hydraulic drives. At Mobility Engineering our specialist engineers will assess the complexity of the task and they will also determine the investment required for the building, installing and operation of the system.

Stainless Modular Belt Conveyor

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Wednesday, 17 October 2018 at 17:02:31

Filed under: Conveyors, Plastic, Steel, Business, Videos, Product Care, Technical

On of our most requested conveyors is the modular belt conveyor, because of it's practicallity, flexibility and cost effectiveness. A simple modular belt conveyor can be used in many varied environments. One we designed and installed recently is shown in our video below and this particular modular belt conveyor was designed for use where the area had to be cleaned and washed down, so was made from stainless steel with a removable belt for easy cleaning. 

The conveyor also had an external drive and the modular belt had no tracking and no end tension. The conveyor was also designed in a split fashion so that machinery could be installed above the belt.

Conveyor Belt With Waterfall Transfer

I know that we keep saying this, but again, this is one of our very favourite conveyor installation videos. There is something about food production that is fascinating and we all love food!

Part of loving food is also being fit and healthy, and protein bars and drinks are making up a large proportion of the health food market. Our video shows how we installed a belt conveyor into a food producer's production line for protein bars. The bars come down the conveyor belt, and are transferred onto another part of the system via a waterfall drop. The protein bars are then lined up for entry through a metal detector and subsequently for packaging.

This is one of our favourite conveyor video's to date! Have a look at how that fabulous bedtime drink, Horlicks, is canned, sealed and packaged up ready to be shipped to your local supermarket for all non-sleepy heads out there.

The north west England food producer had their conveyor system updated to ensure the products were packaged and sent out as efficiently as possible. The video is fascinating to see.
