History of Conveyor Systems

First debuting in the late 1800s, the invention of these material handling systems provided a much less labor-intensive method for coal miners to move ore. But they really found their place in business when Henry Ford used these conveyors create a mechanical production line that still closely resembles the modern manufacturing of today.

For well over a century, these smooth-running belt conveyors have been at the forefront of materials handling systems. With the relatively recent additions of computer technology and robot assistance for the ultimate in automation, they remain the most efficient way to transfer resources internally from point A to point B.

Types Of Conveyor Systems

While there are a wide range of handling and conveyor systems available with Buchmann Electric. These can be broken down into the main types below.

Chain Conveyors

This type of system is most often used when clients want their material handling system to move in multiple directions. Because they are very durable and constructed with the utmost precision, our chain conveyor systems move stock more efficiently which is why they can be found in many workplaces across the country.

Belt Conveyors

Ideal for any client who need to constantly move their stock or other goods around, our range of belt conveyors can be modified for a custom solution created specifically for your business.

Powered Roller Conveyors

Available for low friction or heavy-duty movement, material handling system like powered roller conveyors have been designed for multi-directional travel at various speeds.

Core Strengths Of Conveyor Systems

These systems can be easily integrated into a diverse range of industries such as manufacturing, production, and distribution, and as recent advances in automation evolve it is very likely that the overall number of installations will increase.

From basic material handling units to the more complex and intricate structures, when these conveyor systems at their core have been correctly designed and expertly installed, you can essentially expect them to deliver the following 3 main benefits:

Less Time Wasted

Every time employees handle materials or items it will most likely cause a reduction in  production. Whereas if either a standalone conveyor belt or a whole system of them are installed, it means that manual handling tasks are instantly reduced while throughput speeds have been increased. Basically, conveyor belt systems with customized design means a can potentially reduce labor for your employees, as well as increase productivity.

Create More Space

Just make the most efficient use of factory facility space Conveyor systems. When production changes or expands, many industrial plants will have a belt conveyor system installed, which often eliminates thoughts of relocation. A system of conveyors or a single customized conveyor can turn and twist, travel between several floors, go up and down, in multiple tiers and lines. Installation of overhead conveyor belts take advantage of the dead space well above the floor area that usually goes unused.

Reduce Total Costs

Installing a conveyor can save space and time, which equates to saving money. Simply by efficiently utilizing the space, your plant operations can expand without the need to relocate. Because your production will be faster, a larger workload can be undertaken while other manufacturing opportunities can be explored. Belt conveyors increase efficiency while also reducing maintenance, equipment, and energy costs.

Why Upgrade Or Replace?

Slow systems can have an ongoing negative effect on production, while increasing costs, delaying shipments, which could ultimately put deadlines out of reach. If your conveyor system ever did breakdown, not only would it likely halt work, but it may also effect your relationships with customers.

Not only does by upgrading or replacing conveyor systems improve your facility, but it also enhances your processes and ultimately saves the company money. Thanks to the increased productivity, recover your investment may even happen sooner than expected before ultimately improving the bottom line of your company.
