5 Proven Methods to Cut Conveying Costs
While belt conveying helps with operational efficiency, it also comes with a price. From maintenaince and repairs all the way to the utility bill that comes in every month, that cost can be quite high.
Here are 5 Proven Methods to help slash those costs and improve the efficiency:
Know Your Load
Ignoring or paying little attention to load specification is one of the more commonly made mistakes. Motors and other hardware are often selected on a whim, rather than based on the load being conveyed. Instead, make sure to take full inventory of all product being conveyed. What is the shape or form? What about orientation? You should also consider things like weight, type of product (does it have straps, nails, etc.)? Knowing those factors should help when deciding how much power is actually needed and the size/type of belt needed.
