The Goal: Our customer was having great difficulty with the reliability of an old v-belt driven live roller overhead conveyor in it product packaging line. Rollers were missing, bearings worn out, and product was constantly stuck causing backups. This required line personnel to leave their post and unstick product.
The Solution: We discussed a variety of solutions with the customer offered three options. They customer decided on a direct drop in replacement of the system with new equipment. We measured and documented the current system and then built a replacement that fit exactly in place of the old one. Because the system was an exact match we required only one day to install and tune the conveyor. This resulted was that the scheduler could move production around causing very little disruption to production.
