Throughout the summer months in the UK the demand for cold drinks, from soft drinks to ciders and beers can be high, particularly when there are may also be sporting events involved. It is a fact that the sales of cold beers and other drinks does rise for instance when it is the World Cup or even Wimbledon.
Mobility Engineering have worked with many beverage producers to improve and speed up their bottling facilities - all for the good of the thirsty British public, and we thought we would have a look back at some of our bottling designs for different producers.
The Accumulating Belt Conveyors
Accumulation tables are required when large quantities of empty bottles are being loaded onto a system.
The bottles can then be gathered and fed along the system to be filled, capped and labelled.
If you are looking for any kind of specialist conveyor or a materials handling system call us on 01925 755923 or contact us via our website, we are always ready to have a friendly chat.

Many of our recent projects at Mobility Engineering have involved belt conveyors in various differing designs, some of which are entirely unique and bespoke for each particular client.
Our video playlist below shows many of our recent designs, including the "parcelator" or boom conveyor, the modular belt and slat merge conveyor, a flighted PU conveyor, a modular belt conveyor for packaging and a modular belt decline merge conveyor.

Telescopic belt conveyors are multi functional conveyors which are used in many different areas for carrying products, mainly in the loading and offloading of parcels onto vehicles such as vans and lorries.
Loading and unloading of vehicles can be performed easily using a boom conveyor's extension and retraction parts which can move both forward and in reverse.
Mobility Engineering was asked to design and install and boom conveyor or "the parcelator" for a client who had loading and unloading requirements. The team has designed the boom conveyor (which can be seen in our video) which will match or exceed any other brand of conveyor in terms of build quality, design, functionality and longevity. We can produce different models of the parcelator to suit different clients, and the conveyor can be adapted to have 600 mm or 800 mm wide belts, different base lengths and designs, creating many different combinations to suit particular clients.

At Mobility Engineering we always enjoy a challenge and this particular project required us to produce a system which could handle heavy duty items for the parcel handling industry.
We believe this is the first conveyor or this type to be produced, where there is a low-friction acetal slat chain conveyor with an eight lane merge unit. Our video shows this unique piece of equipment in action! It really is very impressive to see it handling heavy duty products with ease.
Our client was delighted with the outcome and the bespoke design that we designed and manufactured to their required specifications.
Unique Mobility Slat Merge Conveyor

One of our clients recently approached our team asking for a solution for the merging together of two loads from two telescopic belt conveyors.
The conveyor solution was also required to be able to handle heavy duty parcels.
Our design team put their heads together and came up with a unique design which is the Mobility Engineering Acetal Slat Merge Conveyor. We decided that we could re-engineer an "old school" design for a timing belt merge conveyor, but we would incorporate individual chains with acetal slats which are perfect for use with heavy loads.
Our client was delighted with the outcome and the unique design that we had developed especially for their unique requirements.

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!

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!

Mobility Engineering have been producing conveyors and conveyor systems since 1974. 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
Who Are The Mobility Engineering Team?

One of our recent projects was to design and install a system for a client which would enable them to transport various sizes of sheet steel ready for the next operation in the production process.
The Chain Driven Roller Conveyor/Pallet Roller Conveyor is the most robust and heavy duty of the powered conveyor series, 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.

Who doesn't love a good cup of tea from a lovely tea service!
Mobility Engineering are very proud to be amongst the suppliers for the pottery industry, supplying them with batt return systems. These conveyors are used to store and return pottery and table wares to and from the kiln system. They allow the pottery factory to maximise their kiln times throughout a 24 hour shift, with minimal staffing levels during the night.
Potteryware (of which major types include earthenware, stoneware and porcelain) is made from ceramic materials which require firing. Modern potteryware manufacturers require systems which can produce and fire a large amount of mass produced pottery in the most efficient method with minimal costs for both manufacture and labour.
Mobility Engineering has designed and manufactured systems which would be able to load prepared potterywares such as plates, bowls and cups which are ready to be fired onto a conveyor system. The products are then be sent through the kiln and then returned through to the operator for removal from the system.
