GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS:
2010 was a tough year for most of us with the uncertainty of much of the world economy and particularly the Eurozone. At the end of the day we each can only judge the impact of the situation as it directly affects us. Problems for some are opportunities for others.
Bespoke Pallet Handling System:
For us we had a reasonably successful year and it ended on a positive note. The main highlight for us during 2010 was an increase in the proportion of bespoke projects involving something special to solve a specific problem. For example, we designed and supplied a pallet handling system for a clean room product testing station. This consisted of several chain driven powered roller modules, each capable of moving up to 1,500 Kg load.
The system included a PLC based control system to move the pallets on and off a motorised turntable and also to control the opening and closing of the clean room entry and exit doors. In addition to the equipment supplied we provided onsite training for the conveyor system operators.
Tailored Solutions to Load Capacity:
A further example of tailoring a solution to a problem is the project we featured in the September 2010 News Update involving a powered belt conveyor to lift products between 2 floor levels. The conveyor had a substantially greater load carrying capacity than the belt conveyor we had previously installed a number of years ago.
Please check the previous update under the September 2010 News heading if you need more details.
To finish 2010 on a positive note we received an order for a number of gravity roller conveyors and lift-up gates and completed them to achieve the customer's critical Christmas deadline - 7 working days from receipt of his order! Here are some pictures of what we supplied.
Hopefully 2011 will prove to be a successful year for you and us. We look forward to working with you on your conveyor projects.
