Conveyor systems are widely used in different industry
Conveyor system is a common piece of mechanical handling equipment, used for moving materials from one location to another. Conveyors are especially useful in handling systems involving the transportation of heavy or bulky materials. They allow quick and efficient transportation for a wide variety of materials and are consequently very popular in the material handling and packaging industries. They are also often found in supermarkets and airports, used as a mean of bag or luggage delivery for customers.
Due to the numerous benefits they provide, this kind of systems are used widespread across a range of industries, including the mining, automotive, agricultural, computer, electronic, food processing, aerospace, pharmaceutical, chemical, bottling and canning, print finishing and packaging. Some of the most common conveyed materials include food items such as beans and nuts, bottles, cans, automotive components, scrap metal, pills, powders, wood, furniture, grain and animal feed. Industrial conveyors are able to safely transport materials from one level to another, which would be, when done by human labour, very difficult and expensive. They can be installed literally anywhere, and are a lot safer than using a forklifts or other machines. They can move loads of all shapes, sizes and weights. Also, a lot of them have advanced safety systems that prevent accidents.
There are many factors that are important in the accurate selection of a perfect system. Beforehand we should know how the system will be used and consider the required operations, such as transportation, accumulation and sorting, the material sizes, weights, shapes, the locations of loading and pickup points.
Automated conveyor systems are very flexible and designed to transport any type of products, from vegetables, fruit, meat to packed products, such as serial. With their help we can also handle high volumes and diverse packaging formats. They can be an optimal solution for almost any type of industry and are used worldwide.
At Nieros they design automated conveyor system solutions for almost every industry there is. Doing so, they gained many experience, which helps them to provide perfect solutions that satisfy every need of their customers. They are also one of the conveyor system manufacturers that offer adapted system solutions for their customers, such as flexible, mini and industrial conveyor belt systems. They gained the trust of their customers by high quality of their manufacturing and practical designs that allow the effective use of their automated systems which are made of stainless steel and high quality parts that ensure long life span of the machine. Stainless steel constructions are easy to clean and comply with the highest quality requirements and hygiene standards while the product transporters make smart use of the space by organizing them in multiple levels.
Types of conveyors
There is a big variety of conveyor systems for sale. Let us mention the two most common ones.
A roller conveyor is assembled from a series of parallel rotating bars that move goods along to their end destination. Roller conveyors are used in environments like warehouses and manufacturing facilities and are the proper choice when we need to side load, push off, accumulate a product or adjust pressure on carrying rollers.
A belt conveyor system consists of two or more pulleys (sometimes referred to as drums), with an endless loop of carrying medium (the conveyor belt), that rotates about them. One or both of the pulleys are powered, moving the belt and the material on it in forward direction. There are two main industrial classes of belt conveyors, those in general material handling such as those moving boxes along inside a factory and bulk material handling such as those used to transport large volumes of resources and agricultural materials, such as grain, salt, coal, ore, sand, overburden and more.
