The requirement

PJP were asked by a longstanding customer to change the layout of their conveyor system and upgrade various sections so it could fully support new processes.

A strategy that meant no downtime

The work was carried out over two weekends which meant no downtime or hassle for the customer during their working hours.

Following 50% completion over the first weekend we left the conveyor in a working state in its new position, with a temporary outfeed to ensure the customer’s picking, scanning and despatch processes could continue as normal. By the end of the following weekend the project was complete.

What we delivered

We had removed old and problematic transfers and replaced with modern F-RAT units by Itoh Denki. An equally outdated belt driven roller section was updated to 24v ZLP conveyors. Scanner outputs had been changed to sortation lanes which suited new carrier label processes.

The programmable logic controller (PLC) software was upgraded to a newer version which was future-proofed to support operations both now and in the forthcoming years. We also adapted the human-machine interface (HMI) to the new layout and added in useful new functionality.

Finally, testing and commissioning the whole system with the client ensured it performed exactly as required. Job done.

Twin Belt Conveyor for Printing on the Base of Containers

Helping the food industry print on packaging

Have you ever noticed that food packaging often has information printed directly onto it, in addition to its label? Usually this is ‘Best Before’ or ‘Use By’ information. To do this, you need something like one of these PJP twin belt conveyors with a central gap to allow for ink jet printing on the base of containers.

The gap is large enough for a print head but small enough so products can bridge the gap sitting on both belts and still be stable.

Anything to do with food has strict hygiene requirements, hence this is manufactured from Stainless Steel with the design being suitable for washing down and easy cleaning.

An adaptable and safe solution

Flexibility is built into the design with adjustable side guides and the whole unit is easy to move around with its lockable castors.

In all our designs, health and safety is paramount, in fact, we have Safecontractor accreditation. So naturally this conveyor is safe from concerns such as finger traps.

This particular conveyor will be used by an Irish based fish-processor.
