A leading Midlands-based producer of industrial gloves needed to find a more efficient way of transferring glove products to a printing line where the gloves are stamped for identification purposes.
Products are stacked in bundles on four Rusmail Quick Delivery QD Belt Conveyors operating at right angles to an existing printing line . To assist the operatives in removing the gloves from the new conveyors, the conveyor had to be brought as close as possible to the existing line. Integral drum drives, with only 83mm diameter drums were incorporated into the conveyor for this purpose.
The four installed units were identical, all 4m long and fitted with 600mm wide PVC belts, height adjustable stands, under-guarding. Each conveyor was supplied with a foot operated stop/start switch with armoured cable. The integral drum motors were each rated at 0.12kW. Due to the client's continuous operation, each conveyor was pre-assembled and run-tested in our factory to allow very quick positioning and installation.
Rusmail Quick Delivery QD Belt Conveyors fitted this purpose like a 'glove' and the clients objective of increased efficiency has been achieved.
