Since the previous blog update on the doughnut conveyors we have started production of the first small conveyor. The conveyor will soon be ready to install in the factory following the last few production steps.

Having just left production this motorised conveyor is intended to replace an existing gravity conveyor that was slowing down production in a food production facility. As can be seen from the photos it's a stainless steel belt conveyor that protrudes through the ceiling and onto the floor above and we are confident will boost production within the facility. Photos of the conveyor can be seen below.

Currently under production are a series of conveyors for one of the major producers of doughnuts in the UK. Produced to a high food industry specification and featuring several advanced components including a water jet cleaner, air knife and extendible belt conveyor, this proved a challenge for our design team, but after a few hard weeks we are all very pleased with the final results, photos to follow shortly.
