Case Study 1

Our client’s brief was to transport bagged product from low level into the roof having first passed through a metal detection unit and a check weigher. Once in the roof the product was to split in to two lines and then in to a further two lines prior to lowering in to the despatch area some 60metres away.

For details information on our other integrated applications including metal detection, fillers, check weighers, labeling, ink jet and coding please read more here >>

Brief Spec

 

Belts used = 600mm wide modular
Speeds = 60 metres per min
Number of conveyors supplied = 14
Full control system = 2 x panels

 

Special Features

90 % of the conveyors were hung from the roof

The first split was a left and right option. This was achieved by using a 1.2m air cylinder, triggered by the product type from either the panel or by a remote switch.

The bags then proceeded to the next split, this was an up or down conveyor feeding two lines. This was achieved by the conveyor pivoting on its own idler shaft in either an up or down motion; once again this was triggered from the control panel or remotely.

All of the motors supplied were tropicalised due to the location of the factory. They were all variable in speed by means of panel-mounted invertors.

Clients Brief

 

To supply a conveyor system that could feed four separate dispatch locations from one main line conveyor. The mainline conveyor was to be feed by 6 packers. The product was then to pass through a metal detector and check weigher. The conveyor main line then climbs into the roof and splits off into four lanes. The bag size was 800mm x 500mm x 80mm the projected line speed was 48 bags per minute weighing 30 kg each. The project had to be completed 6 weeks from order placement and delivered with full Ce marking and documentation.

Customer’s Comments!

"The system was fully tested at C-TRAK LTD premises, delivered on time and without fuss. We found the whole experience, from technical advice to producing the design drawings the build quality, to be first class. C-Trak has informed us that there after sales service is second to none and although that we have not found the need to test their statement, we have no reason to disbelieve them."
