Astec Conveyors are the first to acknowledge that e-commerce and packing requirements can be complex, with ever-changing purchasing behaviour.
Astec sales manager Paul Fox said: “There is a greater need from these customers to be able to change and configure conveyor positions easily and quickly, ready for the next sorting or packing operation and in food environments, mobile conveyors can be easily moved to assist with cleaning operations.”
Astec have a range of mobile modular conveyors that include gravity/powered roller conveyors, belt or modular belt conveyors that can be manufactured from stainless steel or mild steel powder coated to an RAL colour code.
Astec mobile belt conveyors provided a major UK contract packing company with the flexibility to use these in a variety of different operations and has led to further orders. Manufactured from stainless steel, the modular belt conveyors with variable speed control are mounted on heavy duty locking castors for ease of movement and can be simply linked together.
Fox concluded: “The conveyors can be designed, manufactured and delivered to suit specific product requirements and operate as a simple stand-alone unit or fully integrated into a handling system.”
