|The overhead cable conveyor as featured on our website was on display at the recent PPMA Exhibition at NEC, Birmingham. The cable concept is relatively new in the U.K. but very well established in France and elsewhere. It is used particularly in the food industry – for moving pre-packed salads, vegetables etc. It is also used in the automotive industry for moving light weight car parts within assembly operations.
It is very flexible, virtually maintenance free, very quiet in operation and can be supported from above to release valuable floor space.
It is also generally cost effective vs. powered belt or powered roller conveyors.
With our wide experience of handling unit loads, we would always recommend the optimum solution, whether it’s an overhead, belt or roller conveyor- or even a combination.
