Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors
A regional manufacturer of powdered metal parts had a major inefficiency issue at their Northeast plant. The main issue was that the product used for manufacturing had to be moved from one level to the next. This was being accomplished by the use of three different pieces of equipment and three production workers. This was not only inefficient, but an economic drain on plant equipment and personnel.
Advanced Equipment Company Inc. was able to provide a custom-engineered solution by prescribing an automated vertical reciprocating conveyor (VRC) paired with chain driven live roller conveyor to accomplish the task. This solution allowed the product to be conveyed automatically from one level to the next with minimal human interface. The products were simply loaded on an in-feed conveyor and the custom logic system orchestrated the event using a custom software program. Advanced Equipment provided a turn-key solution for the application including the equipment, mechanical and electrical installation and all logic interfaces.
The client saved significant time and money by freeing up the equipment and personnel to stay on production tasks. The vertical reciprocating conveyor solution improved plant safety. Our trained installation staff worked “off hours” to complete the project with minimal disruption to the production schedule. Another job well done by the Advanced Equipment Team!
