Out of hours conveyor extension

Can you extend the belt conveyor for us?

The conveyor that Spaceguard provided over 10 years ago has run trouble free 16 hours per day for the last 10 years. During a site visit the customer asked if we could extend there existing conveyor by 14 meters, making the new length 24 meters. This had to be done without interfering with the packing operation as the company are in peak, so of course this also has to be completed out for hours.

With the installation having to take place out of operational hours and to be up and running ready for the the morning shift. One of Spaceguard's site teams arrived at the customers site late afternoon. This gave them time to pre-assemble the extension of the belt conveyor section, place on skates to wheel into position.

When the customer completed there fulfilment orders at around 8pm, the work on disassembling the conveyor began. Taking off the end terminals modifying leg positions and upgrading the drive. Once the remedial work had being carried out. The new section was simply fitted in and after the normal 5 nervous minutes of is the belt length right. The mechanical installation was completed. A new conveyor control panel had to be used due to larger motors and changes in how the conveyor was to be used. All wired and commissioned by 1 am.
