On a con­veyor belt to suc­cess

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - FOOD -

The knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence nec­es­sary to in­form busi­nesses what so­lu­tions would be most ap­pro­pri­ate for them is why Dyno New Zealand has achieved a grow­ing mar­ket for the de­sign, man­u­fac­ture and sup­ply as­pect of con­vey­ors and con­veyor com­po­nents. The com­pany spe­cialises in box, crate, bin and pal­let mov­ing for the food and bev­er­age, fruit and veg­eta­bles, meat pro­cess­ing, dairy, pro­cess­ing, pack­ag­ing, man­u­fac­tur­ing and ware­hous­ing in­dus­tries.

Project work is a grow­ing fo­cus for Dyno’s so­lu­tion-based op­er­a­tion with an in­creas­ing num­ber of large scale re­quests from clients who need a com­plete turnkey project com­pleted for a spe­cific need or fit-out. An ex­am­ple was the need of an Aus­tralian fruit pack­house for a full sys­tem of con­vey­ors, crate stack­ers, crate tip­pers, weigh­ing sta­tions and even a crate washer. Dyno tai­lored a sys­tem for the client to help the best prac­tise of the busi­ness which saved size­able amounts of time and man-hours.

Within New Zealand, Dyno of­fers a unique free au­dit pro­gramme. The pro­gramme pro­vides busi­nesses with ex­pert as­sess­ment of their con­veyor set-up to en­sure they are op­er­at­ing ef­fec­tively. This in­cludes ad­vice on how sys­tems could im­prove and what that may do for the pro­duc­tiv­ity of a busi­ness. A Dyno au­dit shows com­pany’s how they can work smarter, in­crease ef­fi­ciency, re­duce costs and stream­line pro­cesses. Changes can be small and low cost but help busi­nesses con­sid­er­ably. It may not be the ac­tual con­veyor sys­tem that can be im­proved; it could also in­volve other facets of the busi­ness such as how a busi­ness is op­er­at­ing, the setup of the sys­tem, labour etc. Dyno of­ten finds that things have changed in a com­pany over time, for ex­am­ple ex­pan­sion, but their sys­tem has not kept up with th­ese changes so they are no longer op­er­at­ing at peak ef­fi­ciency lev­els. The com­pany pro­vides cus­tomers with out­comes re­sult­ing from au­dits in­clud­ing cap­i­tal ex­pen­di­ture of rec­om­men­da­tions and sav­ings that could be achieved if they are im­ple­mented. For ex­am­ple re­plac­ing a piece of ma­chin­ery might re­sult in re­duced down­time and main­te­nance, which saves money long-term. In­creas­ing pro­duc­tiv­ity could mean one less labour unit is needed. Dyno can show its cus­tomers what the dif­fer­ent out­comes might be.

Dyno has its own range of prod­ucts, which are cus­tomised to suit cus­tomers’ spe­cific needs and it can also de­sign and man­u­fac­ture cus­tom so­lu­tions. Th­ese range from small spe­cial­ist bear­ings, con­veyor rollers, and pow­ered con­vey­ors to full cus­tom turn-key sys­tems. On-site re­search and devel­op­ment is a big part of this, which re­cently re­sulted in the Dynoglide 600, a non-lubri­cated con­veyor chain sys­tem. Com­bined with the com­pany’s Dyno Ul­traSlip on a con­veyor, the com­pany be­lieves users can re­alise en­ergy sav­ings of close to 60 per­cent. Dyno Ul­traSlip protects a con­veyor sys­tem, giv­ing it longer life and sub­ject­ing it to lower main­te­nance. It is a cleaner sys­tem with no need for lu­bri­ca­tion, which is a key fac­tor for com­pa­nies that re­quire a clean en­vi­ron­ment. An­other prod­uct cur­rently un­der devel­op­ment and ex­pected to be re­leased to the gen­eral mar­ket be­fore the year is out is a por­ta­ble trough belt con­veyor for use on dif­fi­cult to ac­cess sites.
