The latest generation of tubular drag cable conveyors provides critical process and product quality benefits for breakfast cereal processors. Minimised product damage, improved product safety, reduced clean-up and faster changeovers are key advantages over traditional conveying systems.
A gold mine in West Africa was the last place Enmin Engineers expected to discover a Series 1 model of one of their Electromagnetic Vibratory Feeders.
igus has introduced the 3500R roller energy chain and the guidelite modular plastic guiding profile designed for long travel lengths.
FlexLink’s X65 conveyor has standardised functions for the handling of products up to 3 kg. It offers a lower noise level and a lower total cost of ownership.
With the hopper, support boom and conveyor assembly tilted down, Flexicon’s conveyor fits through standard doorways and orients the conveyor tube horizontally.
The Telemecanique XUY fully integrated roller sensor uses a multibeam photoelectric sensor across the width of the conveyor and is easily installed between the conveyor rollers.
Heat and Control’s customisable vibratory conveyors can be customised for multiple applications, such as grading, alignment, dewatering, spreading and bidirectional distribution.
Flexco’s Novitool Aero portable splice press allows users to splice a conveyor belt in 7 to 12 min.
Bag flatteners are designed to shape filled and sealed bags to provide a shape most suited to packing. Bags that are out of shape due to the filling process can be difficult to pack into cardboard boxes and can impact correct sealing of cartons. Enmin Vibratory Equipment’s Bag Flattener accommodates bags up to 250 mm in width.
The FQIN digital feeder controller can be used to service vibratory feeders from 4 to 15 A power. Operating from a standard single-phase power supply, the simple push-button operation quickly searches for the resonance frequency; and combined with amplitude adjustment, the vibratory feeder is able to be tuned to its maximum potential.
VSS has available a range of ATEX-certified pneumatic vibrators.
FlexLink has launched a modular wide belt conveyor. The company claims all components of the conveyor are standardised to make engineering, maintenance and operation easier.
An upgraded conveyor system has helped Australia’s largest cold-chain logistics service provider stay on top of its game - at low cost.
A pneumatic feeder built by Vibration Systems & Solutions (VSS) in July 1999 is about to celebrate its 13th birthday. Luckily, VSS isn’t at all superstitious - and with good reason. The feeder continues to give great performance delivering fruit and nuts to a multi-head packing machine, just as it has done since it was installed in 1999.
