The second largest pet food manufacture in 2018 chose Asmech. We had to design, manufacture and install a new modular conveyor line. It was to be installed in one of their UK factories. Due to continuous growth and product demand, our customer commissioned a new production line to increase productivity.
Asmech were invited to tender for the project and successfully won.
Modular Conveyor system
Product is filled into cardboard boxes. Boxes are sealed before being transferred onto the new conveyor system. From there the product will deliver the goods downstream. Going through a series of machines, before merging into an existing production line.
Using a modular conveyor design, the system comprised of straights, chicanes and incline sections to achieve interfaces with other machinery which featured a check weigher, row aligner and shrink wrapper.
Once operations were carried out on the product. The product is then delivered downstream, they are palletised, by an end of line robot which has the facility to pick and place from two lines to improve efficiency.
