Minitec has proved its expertise once again in delivering custom-made products to its broad range of clients - with this one-of-a-kind 9-metre conveyor belt.
The Basingstoke-based engineering company was approached to find a solution for a client with a very specific wish list for its factory, including an unusually long and seamless assembly line. The expert team at Minitec quickly designed and built the customised conveyor system - pictured during testing at the factory - which is used for sorting cast zinc sawn parts from an existing manufacturing process.
Included in the design is a hard-wearing belt to cope with transporting the metal parts onto the frame, which is itself made up of MiniTec parts ranging from 25mm diameter × 25mm long to 60mm diameter × 100mm long.
The height-adjustable guide rails were also manufactured to be well equipped to cope with the demanding production requirements and variety of parts which will pass over them.The engineers have also taken into account the customer's long-term strategy and ensured the system could cope with increased production with an automated system for the cutting and sorting process.
