Case Study: Bespoke Conveyor Solution for Handling Round Foam Products
The customer came to us to resolve the problem of loading their round rolled foam bun compressing machine.
Their previous method was for two engineers to manually load, or use a forklift to load, the rolls of foam into the machine.
This risked health and safety issues, meant excessive and unnecessary strain on operators and that the machine would not always be usable without multiple operators. This would also slow down production.
We considered the space and problem and came up with the addition of a shuttle conveyor to match some of the existing ones they use, along with a pneumatic cradle that would raise the rolled foam bun into the belt of the compressor and retrieve it when the roll compression was complete and the wrapped roll, released from the machine.
The cradle then lowers and stablises, before the rear of the cradle rises to an incline to allow the roll to manoeuvre off ready for the next stage.
The machines they have include:
– Bespoke Belt-driven Shuttle Conveyor
– Bespoke Roller-driven Gravity Conveyor with Pneumatic Cradle
