Conveyor Systems

What are conveyors ?

A conveyor is a horizontal, inclined, or vertical device for moving or transporting bulk material, packages, or objects in a path predetermined by the design of the device, and having points of loading and discharge, fixed or selective. Conveyors can be either gravity powered or live.

A simply put – A conveyor is a device that is used to transfer material from point A to point B with/without intermediate loading and unloading points.

Benefits of Conveyors

Conveyors offer a wide range of benefits, many of which are readily apparent.

  • Huge savings in labour costs.

This can be understood with a simple example:

A conveyor of length 10 mtrs running at a speed of 20 mtr/min conveying units 0.5 mtrs x 0.5 mtrs x 0.5 mtrs, weighing 5 kg/unit, has a conveying capacity of 1,920 units/hr.

For a similar manual transportation at least 8 – 10 workers would be required to achieve a similar capacity.
Whereas a conveyor would use only 2 workers; one for loading units on the conveyor and the other for unloading them.
Thus the net labour saving in this example would be 8 labour – hrs/hr of work. This would mean a saving of 80% towards labour costs.

  • Highly efficient and reliable solution for material transport.
  • Brings project to the worker rather than a worker having to travel to a project.
  • Augment quality control processes.
  • Increased worker safety – can be used for transporting heavy or hazardous products.
  • Continuous transferring devices unlike lifts or shuttles which transfer only a certain quantity of material at a time.
  • Timed delivery of units on an assembly line help in maintaining workers’ efficiency.
  • Ability to negotiate horizontal, inclined or vertical transfer paths.
