Every time our design and engineering team produce and install a new bespoke conveyor for one of our customers, it seemed a great loss not to be able to share our bespoke designs with all of our other customers and clients.

Although we have always kept records and photographs of past designs and installations, we decided that it would be great if we could share these with anyone who was interested or who may be looking for a new conveyor or to upgrade their systems.

Our sales department took it in hand to take additional photgraphs and video of our newest designs and to upload these to the Mobility Engineering You Tube channel. This means that we now have a fantastic record and history of our projects and designs online. 

Anyone can subscribe to the Mobility Engineering You Tube channel and this means never missing out when a new conveyor or bespoke designed system is added to the page!

Have a look at our You Tube page and see some of our latest conveyor systems designs!

The Long and Short of Conveyors

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Tuesday, 25 June 2019 at 16:12:47

Filed under: Conveyors, Business, Videos, Applications

At Mobility Engineering we have clients from an absolutely huge variety of businesses, from those that deal with motor vehicle parts, engines and bulky industrial goods on pallets to the other extreme, such as those who manufacture tiny pills and tablets for the pharmaceutical industry or inspect fruits picked that day from the fields.

However, this is not a problem for your design and engineering team at our factory, as we have been designing and installing conveyors that can handle all of these different requirements for well over 40 years!

Our video below shows how distance is never a problem when it comes to our team!

Going Green With Conveyors

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Wednesday, 24 April 2019 at 21:35:53

Filed under: Conveyors, New Ideas

For the last several years, a green movement has swept the globe, and as we are all aware during the last week we had World Earth Day. Consumers, organisations, and large corporations are all now moving toward green initiatives. Whether in packaging, recyclable materials, or energy efficient production, these programs have all lead to more earth conscientious workplaces as well as saved overheard spend. 

However, in an industry filled with automation and machinery, the thought of going green might seem like a faraway dream. Luckily, new innovations in conveyor technologies have led to the possibility of greener business practices in the fields of materials handling and automation. 

What Does Going Green In Conveyors Mean? 

For any industry, going green can be interpreted in different ways, but for those in the materials handling industry, going green consists of minimising the amount of energy and materials being used in our systems. It also consists of ensuring our material handling equipment and systems positively affect employees. This means all machinery should be safe, low noise, and operate as cleanly as possible. 

The Cost Concern 

While going green might be a possibility, many businesses ask if the investment in green material handling initiatives is really worth the price and if it will eventually save money. There are several ways to look at a green investment. In some cases, a business might be able to afford a new, more eco-friendly system. In other cases, a new motor can be enough to save on energy costs and establish an eco-friendly business plan. Whatever an organisation’s situation might be, we will explore a few ways in which going green with conveyors can save money.

Eco-Friendly Conveyor Systems 

There are a few ways to compare conveyor options and determine which one will take an organization in an eco-friendly direction. Organizations prioritizing green initiatives might want to overhaul existing systems for something more earth conscientious. If this is the case, there are several options to compare. For example, when considering belt conveyors, you might find that a narrow belt conveyor performs the same amount of sortation per minute as well as have the same initial investment cost as other systems, while cutting energy use significantly. Other items to compare and consider in conveyor sortation systems can include how much materials are needed, whether or not a system requires lower maintenance over another conveyor, and if it provides low noise for employee safety. Each of these meets the criteria of going green.

Powered Roller Conveyor and Goods Lift

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Wednesday, 17 April 2019 at 17:20:29

Filed under: Conveyors, Rollers, Business, Videos, Industry, New Ideas

One of our recent projects was to design and install a system for a client which would be able to convey and transfer containers of fragranced oils which are open so need to be treated with care.

Our team worked together to produced a 24 VDC powered roller conveyor combined with a goods lift which allows zero pressure accumulation of the containers of oils. The system has been designed to work in a smooth and controlled manner so that the oils do not spill whilst in transit.

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.

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!

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.

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:
