Automated conveyor systems for different industries
Automated conveyor systems are a necessity in many industries, where we need to transport items from one place to another. There are indispensable in most warehouses, supermarkets, airports and wherever bulky and heavy materials would be difficult to move manually. We can find them in automotive, computer, agricultural, food processing, electronic, pharmaceutical, chemical, packaging, bottling and canning industries. Automated conveyor systems can be used to move food (beans, nuts, vegetables, fruit, grains, meat etc.), bottles and cans, different components, scrap metal, paper, wood, furniture, animal food, toys and even pills and powder. As one of the leading industrial conveyor belt systems providers we know the needs of the industry and have adapted our manual or powered conveyor systems accordingly. Furthermore, we don’t only manufacture flexible conveyor systems, we also function flexibly and can adapt to your special needs.
How to care for and maintenance automated conveyor systems
Automated conveyor systems must function well. If they break down, the whole industry can be in jeopardy, because it mostly depend on effective move of its product. To minimize the risk of production coming to a stop due to problems with automated conveyor systems, there are several steps you can take. First, make sure to buy a high-quality product. Nieros is not without a reason among the leading manufacturers in this area. All our automated (flexible) conveyor systems are built with only the reliable components and we devote a lot of time to development and improvement. We also regularly check our customer’s feedback and try to meet all their demands. For your system to function properly and smoothly, it is also recommendable to perform regular inspections of all systems, motors and reducers. Always keep key parts in stock, if they break or are damaged, and make sure that your workers receive proper training. If something goes wrong at Nieros we also offer support and service. Make sure that all your automated conveyor systems are adjusted, that the chain is tightened (if not surging or jamming can occur), regularly check if there is enough lubrication in order to reduce friction and check for contamination with paint, acid, alkaline fluids, powder, glass, steel or other materials. It is also practical to build shrouds around your automated conveyor system, which could prevent contamination of belts or motors. Also regularly clean the area of production.
How to handle automated (flexible) conveyor systems
All products, even flexible conveyor systems, are suited for a variety of products, but before you introduce a new one, it’s advisable to test its suitability before running a lot of material through it. Boxes shouldn’t be too small or too big, too heavy or light, the shape should also be right or they may cause problems, such as jams, too much wear, motor overloads, breakage or other damage. Make sure that all the materials travel at the appropriate speed and monitor the computers for accuracy. Since any disruption can mean a lot of manual work and repair, it can be costly, so it’s always better to be careful and prevent damage rather than repair it.
How to choose the right (automated) conveyor system?
There are several options available and it’s recommended to know, which one to choose beforehand. Think about transportation, accumulation, sorting, material size, weight and shape and consider where the loading and pickup points will be.
