Consumer goods are expensive to process. The overhead is enormous. This is not a major problem for large companies because they can cover the expenses and still compete on the global market. Smaller plants and start-up companies are at a disadvantage. Bidding on contracts, attracting new clients, and making a profit do not always coincide.
If starting from scratch, discover the efficiency, flexibility, and cost savings that cable and tube conveyor systems bring to a plant. Existing business owners will want to explore the cost cutting measure and compare operating costs with current levels. The renovation just may pay for itself and allow the business to remain competitive.
These conveyors take ingredients through every process stage so only one conveyor system is needed. That saves a great deal of the budget immediately. The system is completely enclosed, which eliminates the need to operate high-quality air filters in every department. Think of the costs of reducing particles in the air as much as possible to guard against dust, particles, and debris contaminating the product. Now scratch them off monthly expenses.
More Money Savings
Another advantage to an enclosed system is the virtual elimination of wasted ingredients. Nothing gets jostled off a vibrating belt onto the floor. Ingredients do not crumble to pieces by entering a feeder at the wrong angle. Less waste also means less people on the janitorial crew. Less time is wasted between production runs to clear away every trace of the finished project before being able to start another one.
Conveyor systems are custom designed by the engineering department of the company so the system will meet a multitude of needs. Modular disks, for example, separate tubes into separate compartments. These can be adjusted to suit the needs of processing a particular product at any given time. The dehydrated cat food can be divided into large modules to accommodate dry food for big dogs. It can then be used for guinea pig pellets by making modules quite a bit smaller.
The flexibility of the system does not stop there. Forty years of experience has taught owners a thing or two about creating unique parts to suit any need. Conveyors can travel from floor to floor, building to building, around corners, and through walls.
Sweeps are available at several angles up to ninety-degrees. These are used to change travel in any direction. Special turnaround mechanisms, transfer parts, and a variety of inlet components create conveyors for small spaces, odd-shaped spaces, and spaces several hundred feet in length.
