It is no fluke that the common conveyor belt is now a stedfast friend too many industries and situations. Here at CCL we know, as well as our customers, that the versatility of the system and its many user cases, is what has made it so popular and experimented with, over the decades. From the food manufacturer to the mining company, the conveyor system has become so integral, so relied upon that it hard to envisage industry now doing without it. This week we highlight several benefits that a conveyor system can provide to you and your work environment.
Potential monetary savings
The time you spend on a task can have either a negative or positive effect on your bottom line. Often the longer it takes to do something, the more it can cost. Conducting a time and motion study of the process you are looking to improve can often reveal where the issues, and areas for improvement lie. If this can be streamlined and quickened with a conveyor system then the potential exists for a saving in cost terms.
De-risking your work space
Having humans or machinery moving around a workspace in harmony can be difficult, and even worse it can often lead to injury and damage. Conveyor systems elevate and de risk the potential for accidents to occur. Instead of a fork lift or human going from point A, to point B, the conveyor system takes on that role. The net result often being, fewer risks in the workspace.
With a conveyor system from CCL you have the opportunity at design stage to think about future proofing. What this means is that you can inject an amount of adaptability into your design allowing for expansion and change, according to your future state. This means that there are potential cost savings not just now, but well into the future depending on your plans.
Most likely one of the main reasons you want a conveyor system is to replicate and replace human intervention. Previously it may have taken 1, 2, 3 or more humans to perform a task that can now be taken over by a process, in this case a conveyor system. Again this equates to all the benefits listed above, and more.
Here at CCL we have designed, built and installed conveyor systems for multiple companies, across the globe, introducing all the benefits we talk about in this blog. As always we are more than happy to jump on a call to discuss these projects and benefits with you. Feel free to get in touch anytime for a chat.
