Back in 2009 EQM supplied a modular TRANZBAND roller conveyor (also known as a band driven conveyor) to a kiwifruit packing facility.
The conveyor has been very successful in delivering the desired outcome ever since, but as production has increased they have looked at ways of improving it to meet increased production.
Since it’s a modular design, it was easy to modify and with the purchase of some additional parts they have been able to reconfigure the layout to gain more production out of each carton filling lane “It proves that they have future proofed themselves for an increase in productivity based on originally going with a modular design of band driven roller conveyor.
“They can alter the layout very easy, adding more lanes with the end result of increased productivity.
The TRANZBAND system has been successfully introduced to many fruit handling or food production lines.
The conveyor system
reduces labour requirements
prevents numerous manual lifting and shifting operations
reduces double handling of products
drives the best performance from your labour force
creates a link between existing machinery within the food production process
