One of the main methods of cost optimization in production is the modernization and automation of technological lines.
The aim is to achieve the maximum possible reduction of energy consumption; to minimize equipment maintenance and repair costs; to increase the productivity of technological processes; and to ensure safe and uninterrupted operation of machines, mechanisms and infrastructure.
One of the ways to achieve these goals is the wide implementation of conveyor systems, which, in addition, provide additional convenience for personnel. Conveyors, transporters, escalators, and elevators help to ensure reliable and uninterrupted delivery of raw materials, semi-finished products, finished products, waste, and in some cases people, both horizontally and with a change of vertical level.
These are just some of the areas where conveyors are widely used and have often become integral parts of the process cycle:
- coal and ore quarries;
- food-processing industry;
- furniture manufacturing;
- mechanical engineering;
- chemical industry;
- textile manufacturing;
- processing of agricultural products.
According to the method of execution, conveyors can be divided into:
- conveyor belts;
- roller conveyors;
- chain, etc.
1. Eliminating losses due to equipment downtime;
2. Reducing of production costs;
3. Increasing productivity of existing equipment;
4. Extension of equipment life;
5. Reducing maintenance costs;
6. Operation in conditions of high dust content and conductive dust environments;
7. Placement in limited space;
8. Adaptation to local ventilation and equipment maintenance capabilities;
9. Equipment integration into complete systems and modernization of systems.
