Does your distribution system or material handling system have a bottle neck that holds everything up or do you have a part or section that is always breaking down and causing trouble while the rest of the system works pretty well? Let us come take a look and help you with a solution. We won’t try to sell you a whole new system if all you need to do is fix the problem child. Upgrading an existing system with a better idea is always going to be less expensive and more efficient.
Sometimes you need a whole new conveyor system and we of course do that, but sometimes you already have a system and for the most part it works but it has a lot of miles on it. It is worn out and when it comes to maintenance and repair it has become pretty “needy”. It has reached or exceeded its useful life, but the system layout mostly still works for your needs. In this case it can be way more efficient to replace your existing system with a modern less worn out version. You may also only need to replace a portion of your system saving additional capital money.
There are several advantages to upgrading parts or all of an existing system. First, we can usually use most if not all the control systems. They are electrical components, PLC computers, frequency drives and control panel stuff that don’t see the wear and tear that the rollers, belts, chains, motors and gear reducers do. The control systems can continue to deliver far into the future. Secondly, we get an opportunity to tweak the system, so we eliminate weaknesses, improve performance. Newer technologies will improve efficiency, reduce maintenance costs and make the system much easier to use while earning a good Return on Investment”, at a substantially lower cost that starting over.
