Mobility Engineering Conveyors You Tube Channel

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:

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

Materials Handling

Filed under: Business, Marketing, Technical

Mobility Engineering is a family run company that has been advising clients on materials handling solutions for over 40 years. 

Material handling involves the movement, protection, storage and control of materials and products throughout manufacturing, warehousing and distribution.

Materials handling can incorporate a wide range of manual, semi-automated and automated equipment and conveyors systems that support logistics and make the supply chain work. It is essential that a business focusses on their materials handling applications to ensure they are able to allocate resources and plan production.

Materials handling systems also help businesses successfully run inventory managemement and control and ultimately the customer delivery service.

Having the correct materials handling solution for your business will improve customer service, reduce inventory, shorten delivery time, and lower overall handling costs in manufacturing, distribution and transportation.

Mobility Engineering Facebook Page

Why do businesses such as Mobility Engineering have a Facebook page? It is now known that business owners who use social networking sites effectively are able to promote their businesses in very effective ways, and one of the best ways is with a Facebook business page. Facebook has become a staple for businesses and community organizations and here are a few good reasons why at Mobility Engineering we created a Facebook page for our business:

1. A business page on Facebook gives you a way to communicate directly with your potential and current customers. Your followers are there because they are aware of your company and want to learn more, and indeed they can expect to receive useful information about your company from the page, in fact, we often share videos of recently completed conveyor projects.

2. Facebook humanises your company. Social connections and genuine communication are integral parts of social media, and Facebook gives you an opportunity to attach a face, name, and personality to your brand. While your Facebook page may represent your company, it also allows you to show the human side of your business through one-on-one conversations, personal stories and case studies.

3. It builds a community around your business. Facebook pages are excellent places to gather your customers and prospects and ask them to provide reviews, news and share opinions. Facebook is a place which encourages interaction with your clients.

4. Facebook is good for search engine optimisation. Basically, a Facebook page is a great way to direct traffic (potential customers) to your business website and blog. Having a Facebook page which is linked to a business website can boost search engine rankings, so helping customers find your business.

5. Lots of people who use Facebook visit the site at least a few times a week. So, regularly updating your Facebook page and sharing links to your business website and video content of your business activities gives a business the opportunity to connect with customers regularly.

In 2018 more than 51% of the UK population will log on to Facebook and this percentage of the population is estimated to increase each year. An increasing number of businesses and consumers are using the website to search for products and services and Facebook makes if easier for potential customers to find your business. In summary, a business branded Facebook page can be a great way to expand your business's reach and increase online awareness of your brand

Filed under: Business, General, Marketing, Technical

Mobility Engineering is a family run company which is based in Lymm, Cheshire. We have been designing and manufacturing conveyors since 1974, which is over 43 years! We also work alongside our sister company Roll Ezy who manufacturer all types of conveyor rollers and tracks.

Because we have a highly qualified and skilled team at our factory, we are very unlikely to be fazed by any request for a bespoke conveyor or materials handling system design.

We have a purpose built factory in Lymm where we have been delivering bespoke solutions to clients from a wide variety of industries for many years, and many of our projects are handled under the direction of our Managing Director, Darren Minjoot, who likes to be "hands on" with the business.

Obviously, the conveyor design process has changed over the years and we provide our clients with full working drawings, prior to any manufacturing, for sign off by the client. This offers versatility for clients, and means we are able to offer more bespoke designs and layouts than our competitors.

Our in-house machine shop and control design engineers are also able to offer the control cabinet and full logic/software control systems.

Our conveyors include:

  • Incline conveyors
  • Activated roller belt conveyors
  • Inspection conveyors
  • Conveyor pusher units
  • Traversing semi-automatic trolley cars
  • Accumulation tables
  • Powered roller lineshaft systems, amongst others!

Conveyors for Bottling Drinks

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Monday, 25 July 2016 at 11:12:13

Filed under: Business, Marketing, Industry, Case Studies, Technical

Many of us enjoy a bottle of wine or beer at the weekend, but have you wondered just how your favourite tipple gets into the bottle after it has been brewed or fermented, which generally happens in a large holding tank?

Beer Bottling Conveyor Systems

Many beer bottling companies, large and small, will have to draw off the beer from a tank into glass bottles using a filling machine. The beer is then capped, labelled and packed into cases. Larger companies will have their own bottling facilities, whilst smaller companies will send their product to a bottling facility, as it is generally impractical to bottle by hand.

The beer bottling conveyor process involves:

- Removing the empty bottles from packaged pallets (provided by a glass bottle manufacturer). The bottles are then moved along the bottling conveyor system.
- Rinsing the bottles with filtered water or air and possibly adding carbon dioxide to reduct the amount of oxygen in the bottle.
- The bottles are then passed through a filler which fills the bottle with beer, and generally adds a gas, usually cargon dioxide or nitrogen to disperse any oxygen which may ruin the beer.
-The bottles next pass through a capper which applies the bottle cap.
- The bottles will then enter a labelling machine, and finally they are moved along the production line to be packed in boxes and warehoused.

Wine Bottling Conveyor Systems

The process on a wine bottling conveyor system is very much the same as the beer bottling process. However, many wines used to be closed with a cork (the wine would travel along the conveyor system after being filled to a corking machine (a corker!) where the cork was compressed and pushed into the neck of the bottle. However many wine bottles are now closed with a screw cap which is applied by machine.  Bottling conveyor lines can also incorporate features such as fill height detectors and other useful applications.

Mobility Engineering has worked with many bottling companies and introduced new conveyor systems which have ensured their businesses are running to maximum efficiency. Call our team of experts for a chat to see how we can help you. Here is one of our customer testimonials from Beam Suntory (one of the most famous brands of the group being Jim Beam bourbon).

Beam Suntory, Cooley Distillery, Dundalk, Ireland

"Cooley commissioned Mobility to design, build and then install a powered infeed system for our whiskey bottling line. The system had to be robust, and capable of dealing with a large variety of glass bottles without causing any damage, and without any jamming of bottles, at rates of up to 4500 bottles per hour. A design and project costing was submitted to Cooley, and after submission of an order the building of the conveyor system began in the Mobility workshop. Trials were carried out on a substantial quantity of bottles in the workshop, witnessed by Cooley Team before the system was delivered to Cooley for installation and commissioning. The project was successfully delivered on time and within budget. The company were found to be very professional and when on site during the installation, we found that their engineers were very accommodating and worked well with the Cooley Team. We have been successfully running the equipment for some time now and are very happy with performance. We would have no hesitation in recommending Mobility to other potential customers."

Order Picking

Posted by Sarah Bardsley on Monday, 20 June 2016 at 09:17:24

Filed under: Conveyors, Rollers, Sales, Marketing

Fulfillment of orders is the main challenge today for many online companies. A perfect order can be described as:

  • Complete
  • Delivered on time
  • Free from damage
  • Correct docmentation and price

Fulfilling an Order Correctly

There are various ways that workers within a warehouse or distribution centre can check that they are correctly fulfilling an order, one of the most popular of which is a barcode scanning system. GPS can be used to track trucks making deliveries to ensure these are carried out fully and the delivery person usually has a mobile delivery system to capture signatures from the customer to confirm the product has been delivered to the correct address/customer. Obviously, correctly packaging items ensures they are more likely to be delivered without any damage to the product in transit.

Keeping Customers Happy

Completing an order correctly, on time and with the product being received in perfect condition by the customer is what makes customers happy and likely to buy again from a business.

How Mobility Engineering Can Help You

One way that Mobility Engineering can help you keep your customers happy is to facilitate your perfect order picking by using conveyor systems and roller beds which minimise any damage to your products and assist the pickers and packers to get the products out of the warehouse as quickly as possible. Call Mobility or contact us for a friendly chat about your distribution.
