Conveyor Modification

With competitive market conditions and tighter budgets to achieve increased productivity, modifications to existing lines can sometimes be more beneficial than introducing new equipment.

Arnott Conveyors offer their “Cut & Shut” service to modify existing conveyors and line layouts. This option can be a major benefit when changes are required to modify existing lines so that new products can be introduced. Another quick benefit can be the introduction of lift up gates in a conveyor section to aid access into areas which have become restricted and steps can not be utilised.

From an initial site survey Arnott will offer a solution based on your needs to achieve any modification or revised layout on a line.

Modular Belt Conveyors

Designs for straight running, side flexing, spiral and indexing are available.

For hygiene purposes the modular belt can be lifted from the openly constructed support deck in seconds. The addition of knife edge wire belt transfers at each end will ensure a smooth and level passage of the product at the in feed and discharge ends. Spray bars and inspection grills can be included if required.

PU/PVC Belt Conveyors

The belt conveyor is the well known standard work horse of many production areas. Arnott’s standard belt material is Polyurethane though many material types and ply’s are available to suit the multitude of applications in the market.

Due to the potential wandering nature of belts, Arnott have developed their own pneumatic belt tracking system ideal for reducing maintenance and increasing belt life. This is fully automatic and requires only air to operate.

Automatic belt tracking system

 Accurate, automatic alignment of conveyor belts for use in light industry

A simple cost effective solution to belt tracking

The movement of the belt is dictated by the movement of the snub roller. The system is only triggered when the belt moves off centre, when this occurs the belt is steered back to its centre position.

  • Simple, few moving parts
  • Operates in all conditions, wet and dry
  • Works on reversing belts 
  • Easy installation and reduced maintenance 
  • Adjustments made only when necessary reduces wear on system
  • Fully pneumatic, no electrical supply required
  • Increased belt life by reducing damage to edges
  • Eliminates downtime caused by belt mis-tracking
  • The system can be mounted to most conveyor frames without belt removal.
