Powered Roller Stillage Conveyor

Our design team at Mobility Engineering has recently been involved in a three phase project to provide a conveyor system which can handle very heavy and awkward stillages.

We designed and installed a heavy duty, powered roller conveyor which was capable of handling very heavy and awkward stillages safely within a manufacturing business. The rollers used on this particular project had to be machined to allow for the runners on the base of the stillages, and the system has been built to allow for a maximum weight of 1,000 kilograms.

Our video below shows the different stages of installation and the testing of the product before it was installed on site.

Quick Release Belt Conveyor

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Saturday, 25 August 2018 at 12:49:08

Filed under: Conveyors, PVC/PU, Videos

Our design team at Mobility Engineering has recently been working on designing and manufacturing a quick release belt conveyor.

This type of conveyor is for use within the food and pharmaceutical industry, where it is essential that every part of the conveyor can be cleaned and washed down. These conveyors will always be manufactured from stainless steel, which will not rust, and they must be designed so that no area can harbour dirt or germs.

The quick release mechanism on this type of conveyor enables the belt to be easily lifted free from the conveyor so that all parts can be thoroughly cleaned inside and out.

Mobility Engineering Interfloor Conveyor

Our design team at Mobility Engineering has recently been involved in a project with manufacturer who produces wallpaper.

We were asked to produced a variety of conveyors to move their wallpaper products along and between different floors. The whole system included an interfloor belt conveyor with roller (both lineshaft and gravity) conveyors, which was perfect for their requirements of handling boxes of packed wallpaper rolls. We included in the design lineshaft powered rollers, modular belt and pvc belt conveyors and also gravity roller conveyors. The pvc belt conveyor had a griptop which allows the boxes to travel down the decline conveyor without slipping. 

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

Our design team at Mobility Engineering has recently been involved in a project with a soft furnishings manufacturer.

We were asked to produced a variety of conveyors to move around their products 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.

Biscuit Reclaim Belt Conveyor System

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Thursday, 26 July 2018 at 18:28:29

Filed under: Business, Videos, Interviews

We have recently been working with one of our food manufacturing clients, who wanted a system which could reclaim biscuits which were either damaged or broken.

Once the biscuits have been produced they are 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!

Triple Chain Conveyor

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Tuesday, 24 July 2018 at 18:38:03

Filed under: Conveyors, Videos, Industry

At Mobility Engineering we are often asked to design and install material handling sytems which can handle pallets. Here we have one of our latest projects for a client where we designed and supplied a triple chain conveyor which would handle regular pallets.

Triple Chain Conveyor

Pallets are built with three runners on the bottom of each pallet and the triple chain pallet conveyor is designed especially to handle these. What can happen with a double chain conveyor (without the third chain in the middle) is that the pallet can sag and/or break if carrying a heavy load. The client was extemely happy with their new conveyor.

Lineshaft Powered Roller Conveyors

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Monday, 16 July 2018 at 14:04:01

Filed under: PVC/PU, Lineshaft, Applications, Testimonials, Case Studies

As always, it is great to receive feedback from our customers, and one project we worked on with a well known catalogue company was extremely successful and the feedback from the client was excellent.

Mobility Engineering were asked to attend the catalogue company's site and study the logistical problems the client was experiencing. Our team then went away after the information gathering exercise and we were then able to assess the situation and offer the client our recommendations and solutions to their problems.

The main problems they were experiencing was within the mail room, where all mail sent to their customers was produced by two mailing machines. Once the mail was produced and enveloped it was placed in mailing tote bins and transferred to a low level mezanine floor where it was put into mailing sacks.

The client did have a system in place which used a number of different conveyors which unfortunately did not allow items to be indexed and, in addition, once the tote boxes were emptied there was no way of returning them to the beginning of the system apart from manually. 

After several visits, and a detailed site evaluation and discussions with the client, our specialist team at Mobility proposed installing a lineshaft 24vDc and PVC belt conveyor infeed line, which would deliver the tote boxes to the mezzanine floor and would also allow a buffering and indexing system.

To solve the problem of delivering the mail boxes to the beginning of the system, we installed a top tier lineshaft conveyor system allowing the buffering of 60 stacks of three boxes via blade stops and a control sequence, with pusher units to deliver the totes back to the infeed staff.

Mobility Engineering Magnetic Conveyors

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Wednesday, 20 June 2018 at 21:34:46

Filed under: Magnetic, Videos, Applications

Mobility Engineering specialises in magnetic conveyors. These are used to convey small steel objects, usually during the manufacturing process. They can convey items straight from under a press or from outside a press which is fed with an internal conveyor.

Mobility Engineering Magnetic Conveyors

The magnetic conveyor is a fascinating piece of equipment as you cannot see a moving mechanical part - it is literally a twin strand chain conveyor with magnetic bars attached underneath the stainless steel base. 

Magnetic conveyors can be horizontal or they can run on an incline or be formed into a swan neck, usually when products are being conveyed up into a bin for storage or removal by fork lift.

The type of magnetic conveyor that will be designed for our customers will depend on the items to be transported and the area it is to be used in at the client's premises. This will affect the magnet type used, and the strength and possibly the pitch of the conveyor itself.
