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!

Modular Belt Conveyor For Handling Cardboard

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:

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

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

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.
