Installing Multiple Conveyors

Filed under: PVC/PU, Rollers, Lineshaft, Business, Videos, Applications

Often when the Mobility Engineering team are asked to work with a client, it will involve designing and installing more than one kind of conveyor. This particular client required a number of conveyors to move products between different floors and areas. 

After a full overhaul and redesign of their conveyor systems, the client was installed with:

  1. An interfloor belt conveyor with both lineshaft and gravity roller conveyors
  2. Lineshaft powered roller conveyors
  3. Modular belt and pvc belt conveyors (part of which were also installed with grip tops as they were used on a decline).

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

Who We Are and What We Do

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Wednesday, 12 December 2018 at 20:43:28

Filed under: Videos, General, Marketing, Case Studies

Mobility Engineering have been producing conveyors and conveyor systems since 1974 - which is over 44 years in the business!

We design, develop, manufacture, install and commission conveyors and material handling systems from our purpose built factory. Our talented team of engineers, designers and project managers deliver bespoke solutions to suit a variety of customers from a wide range of industries. Our full drawing/design office produces full working drawings, prior to any product/conveyor being manufactured, which offers the versatility of being able to offer more bespoke designs and layouts. Coupled with this, is our in-house machining shop and control design engineers, who are able to offer the control cabinet and full logic/software control system.

Generally (or more simplistically) 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 and how fast the product goes from A to B, plus it can have the added benefit of accumulation. Examples of powered conveyors are:- 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

Modular Belt Conveyor For Handling Cardboard

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Tuesday, 11 December 2018 at 22:26:26

Filed under: Conveyors, PVC/PU, Business, Videos, Applications, Industry

The engineering team at Mobility were asked to design and build a modular belt conveyor which could handle scrap cardboard waste for one of our clients. Here is one of our latest videos showing the conveyor in action.

Modular Belt Conveyor 

Modular (plastic) belting is now being used more frequently on belt conveyor systems because of it's durability and it's multi-functional properties. Modular belting is generally constructed from either polypropylene (temperature range of +5 degrees to +105 degrees), polyethylene (temperature range of -40 degrees to +60 degrees) or polyacetal (temperature range of -40 Degrees to +60 Degrees).

As it is a series of links, the belt can be constructed to suit the application. e.g. the links can be very narrow to allow small end drums for transferring products. Or, the belt can be an opened top flush grid to allow air or water to be passed through the belt. Or, the belt can have a radius flush grid for use on bends. The modular belt can also incorporate a grip top for inclines.

Gravity Roller Conveyor Lines

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Monday, 19 November 2018 at 21:54:54

Filed under: Conveyors, Gravity, Business, Videos, Applications, Industry

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

Modular Belt Decline Merge Conveyor System

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Monday, 19 November 2018 at 15:05:39

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

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

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.
