LVP Conveyor systems have recently built a fully stainless steel lifting modular belt conveyor for the beverage industry.

The spec was as follows:

  • 300mm range of movement
  • Fully stainless steel frame with IP65 rated motors and actuators as a minimum
  • Capable of lifting over 100kg including product and conveyor frame
  • 8 second movement time

In order to achieve the above, we designed and built the machine you see from scratch in LVP’S workshop. Sizing and selection off the AZ Series stepper motor for lifting of the weight was done in house, as well as the brushless DC motor that will drive the lifting modular belt conveyor. All values of inertia, torque and speed were calculated in house.

Some of the hardware was as follows

  • Fully IP66 rated Oriental motors
  • Fully IP65 rated Festo linear actuator
  • Hiwin Slide rails
  • Allen Bradley control PLC Device and interlocks

Special purpose machine building is a speciality in LVP Conveyor systems limited. Get in touch to discuss any projects you have

LVP Stainless Steel Carryline Glass and Plastic Jar Sauce line

One of LVP’S most recent conveyor system installations was a series of Carryline 83mm wide conveyors that incorporated two lifters between levels and 150m of conveyor for glass and plastic jars. Designed to accommodate over 10 different product types the system has 2 tier quick release manually adjustable guiderails to change the guiderail widths for different product lines.

Because of various processing machines on the line like fillers, pasteurisers, labellers etc special thought had to be given to putting in areas of accumulation and to adding pneumatic jar stops at certain points to reduce the line pressure. As the system is fully wash down and there is water involved in the process a series of stainless steel drip trays runs the length of the system to dedicated drain points to reduce the amount of water
on the floor.

We deliver a turnkey package to include 3d design and system thruput calculations, mechanical /electrical installation including control panel build, programming and commissioning. Leveraging the full product portfolio of Carryline we can support you in Ireland or the UK for your next conveying project. Contact us today for more information

Space Saving Spirals Increases Production Efficiency & saves valuable real estate!

Turn Squared Meters into Cubed Meters for better Factory Utilisation using Carryline Spirals

Juice Drinks Packaging is another Successful Carryline Application

A quality conveyor is only part of what is needed for system optimisation. In Order to make a system all components must work together in perfect harmony.

LVP Recently supplied twin Spiral Conveyors and an overhead Carryline conveyor System System to a company processing Soft Drinks.

  • Carryline Spiral Conveyors designed to elevate product from factory floor level up to ceiling hung conveyor lines to save space.
  • One SEW drive motor, compact footprint , no guarding and minimal maintenance required on spirals
  • 220mm wide chain allows for conveyance of shrinkwrapped juice drinks out of heatshrink machine and up to overhead line feeding palletiser.
  • Overhead conveyors lightweight and one SEW drive motor for up to 18m straight = minimal maintenance.
  • Accumulation plastic belt with roller conveyors at high level to accommodate accumulated product immediately prior to palletiser infeed. This feature caters for upstream line stoppages which means downstream production does not have to stop – particularly the heat shrink machines which when stopped can be problematic to restart at correct wrap temperature. Pneumatic separation devices police the infeed to the palletiser

FDA Stainless Curve Conveyors from LVP continue to be a first class solution for many Irish Customers

Automated feeding of Product from bagging stations to sealing stations is a common application in the Food and Beverage industry, however tight floor space continues to be a problem for many Customers

Our Curve conveyor Designs, Due to the design that we have realised in our curve Belts, allow Customers to take further advantage of their existing real estate that they can’t with many other Conveyor types

Real Estate, especially in the Irish Market, continues to be a large scale problem for many Business in the Manufacturing Sector. Production manager’s and engineers need to be able to utilize floor space as mush as possible in order to be as productive as possible.

But in order to be Productive Real estate is only 1 half of the puzzle, the other being Good Reliable Manufacturing Equipment. Tight Radius Conveyor Curves are a large part of solution that allow Manager’s to improve their process.

The Cell you see in these Photos is a work cell installed by LVP in a Drinks Concentrate Manufacturing plant where 90 degree and 180 Degree curve conveyors interlocked with Bag filler and sealers were a fundamental part of the solution to automate this process. Acetal FDA Modular belts with 304 Stainless Frames to resist the Acidic nature of the concentrate allowed the conveyor to be suitable. Polypropylene Bearing house were selected as Polypropylene is not Hydroscopic and high resistant to the concentrate.

All Conveyors were interlocked through the E-STOP in order to satisfy the Risk Assessment properly, and the conveyors consisted of their own variable speed controls and stop/start controls.

Any project like this is Regular work for LVP, If you have a similar requirement, or need components for existing installations, Fell free to get in touch.
