A dip manufacturer needed 23 conveyors to carry dips and spreads from a production area into a packing area and then into an HMPS Case Packer.

While hygiene was a priority for the company, the cost of all 23 conveyors in full stainless steel was prohibitive so Smalte Conveying Solutions Sales Manager Rob Winterbottom came up with a more affordable alternative that did not compromise hygiene.

Significant cost benefits to the client were achieved by splitting the system into stainless steel in the production area and aluminium conveyors in the packing area.

Smalte also liaised with NORD Drivesystems, which advised them on an alternative drive solution.

NORD’s nsd tupH drive ticked all the boxes for the client’s production area such as a cleaner design with the added benefit of using standard flanges in case of urgent breakdowns and availability of parts, and its suitability to harsh washdowns.

“We met with our client and suggested the use of NORD’s drives for their application. The client could immediately see the benefits and awarded us with the contract on the same day!” said Rob.

Thirteen conveyors have been provided in the first stage with a second order received for an additional 11 conveyors.

“All new Smalte Conveyors will now be supplied with NORD geared motors with the nsd tupH surface protection throughout the facility for standardisation purposes. We have a happy client and we are also very happy with the performance of these drives thus far,” concluded Rob.
