In the building industry, it is a combination of tight schedules, complex supply chains and a need for efficient material handling. Pallet conveyors are a long standing valued solution to assist in streamlining operations and optimising logistics in construction projects. Here we look at why pallet conveyors are beneficial to the building industry.
Automatic pallet handling
Building materials have to be transported from the loading area, to the production line, the warehouse and for delivery. Pallet conveyors are designed to improve this efficiency of this process reducing labour costs and human error. With other methods there is a higher risk of injury and damaged products. Automated conveyors give the ability to safely transport goods from one end to another along rollers or chains with minimal human interaction.
In building and construction, the majority of goods to be transported are heavy raw materials such as sand, cement and bricks. Pallet conveyors can work in collaboration with other systems to provide the perfect system for all needs. They can be assembled in a variety of different circuits to allow for the ease and continuous flow of sand and other heavy goods. With a heavy duty design they are able to handle abrasive and dusty items.
Pallet conveyors offer an alternative for the more traditional handling equipment, and in effect, the manual handling of materials lessens, therefore this boosts safety measures when the system is installed, maintained and operated correctly by trained professionals. They include mechanical elements that ensure materials are moved with safety and diminishes the risk of accidents. They are compatible with standard site vehicles including forklifts. The heavy-duty construction offers long lasting performance with minimal maintenance.
