How sim­ple changes can make a big dif­fer­ence

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

Aurora un­der­stands the need to find sim­ple, prac­ti­cal so­lu­tions for chal­lenges that can make or break busi­ness ven­tures. In busi­ness it can be sim­ple changes that make the big­gest dif­fer­ence.

That was cer­tainly the case when Ian White, man­ager at Lin­coln Grains, went look­ing for a new way to mix horse feed that would cut down the need for man­ual labour.

Lin­coln Grains sells pre-mixed grain feeds for horses and pro­duces five dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties. Ian ap­proached Aurora to help put his re­quire­ments into re­al­ity.

“Aurora's en­gi­neer came out promptly and lis­tened to my ideas, us­ing their knowhow to solve the prob­lems,” says Ian.

He worked with Aurora to im­ple­ment a com­plete mix­ing, con­vey­ing and bag­ging sys­tem for his feed pro­duc­tion and in do­ing so cut in the half the time he spends hand mix­ing his prod­ucts.

“Prior to this project these were all mixed by hand – by me,” says Ian.

“Aurora worked with us to de­sign and build an au­to­mated sys­tem to re­place this. The crushed grains go into a mixer and in a one tonne hop­per are mixed with mo­lasses. This sys­tem has cut my time in half.”

The bag­ging sys­tem at Lin­coln Grain in­cludes a Galaxy mixer and con­di­tion­ing screw where the feed is mixed and mo­lasses is added.

From there the prod­uct is trans­ferred via a belt con­veyor to the Tay­lor bag­ging scales that ac­cu­rately weigh the prod­uct into bags.

The bags are then closed us­ing a Fis­chbein bag closer.

The bag­ging plant is now busy mak­ing life eas­ier, and Lin­coln Grains is on track to move their busi­ness on to the next level.

Sim­ple and durable equip­ment con­structed to with­stand years of in­dus­trial use has seen Aurora equip­ment favoured in al­most ev­ery ap­pli­ca­tion.
