How Conveyors Can Help Your Business

Conveyors are used in almost every industry where materials need to be moved, including bottling plants, recycling centres, food, ecommerce/logistics and automotive. They can be used in every industry which has a process requiring the movement of items/materials at regular intervals in a cyclical fashion.

Conveyors Automate Human Operations

The primary advantage of conveyors is that they automate a lot of human operations that are associated with the manufacturing and transportation of materials. This includes operations like feeding, moving, loading and unloading of materials. If your business has any of these requirements, then a L-A-C Logistics Automation solution is the right investment to be made.

How to Brief For a New Conveyor System


When in need of a new system, it is key to the success of the project in the creation of a good brief. The more detailed the brief, the greater the chance for the supplier to fulfil your requirements. The key areas of consideration in the creation of your conveyor system are as follows:


The weight of the product you are moving


The dimensions of the product


The size of the available floor space for the system


CAD drawing or drawing of the floor space


The height of the building where the system will be installed. This is key to understand as space in this modern world is valuable. There may be an opportunity to build upwards relieving lower space for other operations


The required cycle time/system throughput


Is the system fully automated? Are certain areas required to be left for manual interaction/non driven sections


The material and load capacity of the flooring where the system will be sited
