Flighted PU Belt Conveyor

One of our latest projects has been to design and install a conveyor for the transport of chocolate food products. The conveyor we decided to use was a flighted belt conveyor, which allows the food products, after they have been coated in chcolate to travel up an elevation and around onto a packing line.

The conveyor is fully constructed from 304 Stainless Steel with a PU flighted belt which is to FDA standards, which was perfect for our client's requirements.

Chain Driven Roller Conveyors

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Thursday, 28 February 2019 at 16:58:51

Filed under: Chain Driven, Business, Videos, Technical

The Chain Driven Roller Conveyor or Pallet Roller Conveyor is the most robust and heavy duty of the powered conveyor series, and is predominantly used for heavier products such as pallet/drum handling and storage, where the product is usually fed onto the conveyor by a machine or fork truck.

Powered Roller Conveyor systems comprise various components that are designed for both heavy duty usage and flexibility. They consist of sprocketed thick walled rollers, chain to chain or tangential (one common chain) drive mechanism, a fully enclosed side frame and an external shaft mounted motor.

Here are some of our most recent chain driven roller conveyors which have been installed with our customers.

Powered Roller Conveyors

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Wednesday, 27 February 2019 at 16:55:19

Filed under: Conveyors, Rollers, Videos

Powered roller conveyors, as opposed to gravity roller conveyors, 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 the powered roller conveyor can have the added benefit of accumulation.

Lineshaft Powered Roller Conveyors

Lineshaft Powered Roller Conveyors are purposely used when situations require either the simple conveying of products or back to back accumulation, but with as little pressure on the leading product as possible (although depending on the exact application, they can easily be adapted to become zero pressure accumulation systems).

The Lineshaft Powered Roller Conveyor is the more light duty of the powered roller conveyors, handling products that are typically around 25/30kg, such as cardboard boxes, plastic tote boxes, etc. Typical scenarios for the use of this type of conveyor are : Order picking lines/stations, production lines, packaging lines, bar coding sortation systems and obviously the simple movement from A to B.

Lineshaft Conveyors provide an economical solution to conveying and accumulating items with a firm base. The rollers are powered from a drive shaft - mounted beneath the rollers and extending the full length of the conveying bed - and are driven via elastomer belts.

Gravity Roller Conveyors from Mobility Engineering

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Friday, 22 February 2019 at 16:19:41

Filed under: Gravity, Business, Videos, Industry

Gravity Roller Conveyors are one of the most useful, popular and, perhaps, one of the most basic and hard wearing conveyors designed by Mobility Engineering. They can be used in so many different areas, such as for conveying trays, slave boards, cardboard boxes, plastic totes or, basically, anything with a plastic bottom. They will easily and simply transport products from A to B without any form of power!

Yes, gravity roller conveyors use the force of gravity to move products, keeping everything simple and extremely cost effective. Products can be freewheeled by hand or a slight decline can be introduced to allow the products to fall over the length of the conveyor.

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.

Here are some of our gravity roller conveyors from Mobility Engineering in action!

Conveyors and Packaging

Although the amount of packaging on products is often in the news these days, it is still important that products and particularly food products, are packaged in a manner which keeps food fresh and in top quality condition until it reaches the consumer. Products also still need to look attractive to the consumer as there is so much competition between brands!

Mobility Engineering works together with many clients in the food manufacturing industry and has produced many different bespoke conveyors to provide packaging solutions for clients.

Chain Conveyors

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Tuesday, 29 January 2019 at 16:38:16

Filed under: Conveyors, Chain Driven, Videos

Chain Conveyors are predominantly used for either very heavy or very wide and awkward loads, or where the base is not suitable, i.e. not flat enough to be handled on rollers.

A Chain Conveyor is, in it's simplest form, chains that sit and run within guides and carry the load. Instances where chain conveyors are used are conveyor systems for automotive handling where clients are moving large and awkward automotive parts including car bodies, chassis, trucks, etc, and in heavy industrial areas when moving products and parts which are particularly wide or heavy.

Here we have some of our video clips showing some of our different chain conveyors in action!

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.

Gravity Conveyors and Flat Bottomed Boxes

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Tuesday, 22 January 2019 at 13:51:08

Filed under: Conveyors, Gravity, Business, Videos

One of our most successful and popular conveyors is the non-powered gravity roller conveyor, and we have a great video here showing the gravity roller conveyor in action. One very useful and interesting point about these particular conveyors is how they are used with boxes and totes! Anything which does not have a flat and level bottom can be a problem with a gravity roller conveyr as can be seen below. See how the "good box" glides easily and quickly along the rollers, whilst a more battered and mishapen box will bump between the rollers and even come to a standstill.

Gravity roller conveyors can still be used to transport items which are odd shapes or in bags as long as these can be put into suitable boxes or flat bottomed totes.

Mobility Engineering Conveyors You Tube Channel

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Sunday, 20 January 2019 at 10:18:11

Filed under: Conveyors, Business, Videos, Marketing, Technical

One of the best ways we have found to showcase our bespoke conveyor designs is by creating You Tube video content of our conveyors. Our team started creating video content of our conveyor systems as they were completing the designs and testing them in-house at our factory in Cheshire, prior to the conveyors being transferred to the client's premises. The Mobility Engineering You Tube channel has grown over the last couple of years and we enjoy putting out designs online. Much of our video content also shows our conveyor designs installed and working at clients' premises, which is great to see.

Here are some of our most viewed Mobility Engineering conveyor videos:
