Case Study 2

Our clients brief was to transport bars of soap from a cutting machine though to a sealing unit and then on to a packing station.

Brief Spec

 

Belts used = 200mm wide radiused modular
Belts used = 800mm wide Pu belts
Speeds = 110 metres per min
Number of conveyors supplied = 10
Full control system = 1 x panel
Soap bar turning unit = 2 x air operated

 

Conveyor Speeds

The conveyors were to run at speeds in excess of 100metres per min; this speed was on the limits of what had been achieved before. We therefore affixed Kevlar wear strips to the modular belt and used a special hardened plastic for the wear strips. Conveyors of this type had never been run at the speeds required within the adverse ambient conditions of the factory in question.

Belt Conveyors

The conveyors had a central tracking groove and were 20m long. The conveyors were supplied with a quick release device to enable the belt to be replaced quickly. The frame was a canter lever design, which once again enabled the customer to remove and replace the belts within minutes.

Soap Bar Turner

The soap bars had to turn through 45 degrees without being toughed or slowed down, they were travelling at 100 metres per minute. We tackled the problem by sensing the product and progressively blowing air through a whisper knife.

Clients Brief

To supply a system that could transport two lanes of soap bars through a slitter and on to a sealer, to rotate the bars though 45 degrees and to conveyor them on to 2 x packing station belt conveyors all at the line speed of 100 metres per minute.
