Is a Custom Conveyor System Required?
Over the past 20 years, we’ve learned a lot about conveyance and the impact that it can have on an automation system. Often, custom designs are utilized due to the complex requirements of a project. How much floor space is available? What is the cycle time? Do we need buffer zones to ensure all stations are running efficiently?
Conveyance is usually a secondary consideration to station design. Conveyance is left until the core areas of the machine are already developed but by thinking about conveyance at the start of the project, you can understand how it impacts each station process. You can gain more insight into what needs to be built on top of it. A custom conveyor may not be required and configuration is always better than customization!
When you work with the SuperTrak™ team, we review your application requirements and create a simulation of the system, highlighting bottlenecks, inefficiencies, and areas that could be simplified; providing a means to develop high-performance automation that meets your custom needs with less risk.
