Related Capabilities

Midwest Engineered Systems offers a variety of conveyance solutions for product transportation. We specialize in beginning to end automated package handling systems including design, integration, conveyor control systems, and conveyor system retrofits. Our conveyor systems are focused on providing high-speed and high-precision handling. Combining automated weight-weight scale verification as well as code tracking leads to better quality control, and full digitally-recorded traceability on each product or package.  

Automated Conveyor Systems

Conveyor systems are very useful when a company has many items that need to be fed or transported from one location to a different one. These systems can be used in many different industries and for transporting a wide variety of products. Conveyors come in many different configurations, allowing items of different weights, sizes and material properties to be transported without damaging either the products or the conveyor system.

千亿体育网站Without conveyors, materials would have to be manually transported and tracked. This adds costs and creates potential issues, such as increasing labor and having to find effective ways to handle training and labor-management issues.

Advantages of Automation

There are many benefits to automating the process of moving items from one place to another. Here are some of the more notable benefits of automated conveyor systems, in place of using labor, forklifts or manual lifts for transporting products:

• Conveyors have virtually no limit on the number of items that can be continuously loaded and unloaded.

• With the right power, a steady supply of products, and regular maintenance, conveyor systems can essentially run indefinitely.

• Conveyors installed with automated incline belts can unload products without the need for manual labor. This eliminates the need for supervision of the material unload process.

千亿体育网站• Systems can be configured to feed materials between levels with virtually no height limitation, which is especially useful for large, multi-level factories or facilities.

千亿体育网站• Conveyor speeds can be controlled through programming or interfaces, reducing the chances of an item breaking or other handling issues stemming from product loss.

• Conveyors can transport materials in both directions. A useful feature in cases where a product has to be moved between different ends of a warehouse or room during the product’s manufacturing phase.

Types of Conveyor Systems & Advantages

千亿体育网站Different industries have needs for different conveyor systems. Here are some common conveyor types:

千亿体育网站• Steel Belt Conveyors—These conveyors have either a steel apron or a piano hinge design. Used in heavy-duty applications such as with waste lines.

• Chain Belt Conveyors—Designed primarily for carrying high volumes of materials. Often used on manufacturing work floors.

千亿体育网站• Slider Bed Conveyors—A middle-ground between lightweight chain belts and heavyweight steel belts. Useful for feeding horizontal balers and side eject balers.

• MRF Sorting Lines—A customized mixture of steel belts, slider beds and chain belts.

Integration with Other Automation Systems 

There are many systems that automated conveyors can be integrated with. Common systems that are integrated with conveyors are:

• Product assembly

千亿体育网站• Distribution systems

• Manufacturing systems

• Pallet transportation systems
