Smalte col­lab­o­rates with NORD

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MOTORS & DRIVES -

Smalte Con­veyor So­lu­tions re­cently supplied a quote for 23 stain­less con­vey­ors used to carry dips and spreads from a pro­duc­tion area into a pack­ing area - and then into an HMPS Case Packer.

Rob Win­ter­bot­tom, Smalte Con­vey­ing So­lu­tions Sales Man­ager, says that the ini­tial quote was out of the client’s bud­get but that the team ap­proached the job in a slightly dif­fer­ent man­ner to best sat­isfy the cus­tomer’s needs. “We de­cided to split the sys­tem into stain­less steel in the pro­duc­tion area and alu­minium con­vey­ors in the pack­ing area which pro­vided sig­nif­i­cant cost ben­e­fits to the client.”

Dur­ing the time of quot­ing, Smalte Con­vey­ing So­lu­tions was vis­ited by the team at NORD Drivesys­tems who ad­vised them on an al­ter­na­tive to its com­peti­tors. “Dur­ing the meet­ing, NORD’s nsd tupH geared mo­tor with its sealed sur­face came up and I im­me­di­ately saw this as a match for a client with very strin­gent hy­giene re­quire­ments,” said Win­ter­bot­tom.

In iden­ti­fy­ing the op­por­tu­nity, NORD’s nsd tupH drive ticked all the boxes for the client’s pro­duc­tion area such as; a cleaner de­sign with the added ben­e­fit of us­ing stan­dard flanges in case of ur­gent break­downs and avail­abil­ity of parts, and its suit­abil­ity to harsh wash- downs. “We met with our client and sug­gested the use of NORD’s drives for their ap­pli­ca­tion. The client could im­me­di­ately see the ben­e­fits and awarded us with the con­tract on the same day!”

Thir­teen con­vey­ors were pro­vided in the first stage with a sec­ond order re­ceived for an ad­di­tional 11 con­vey­ors. “All new Smalte Con­vey­ors will now be supplied with NORD geared mo­tors with the nsd tupH sur­face pro­tec­tion through­out the fa­cil­ity for stan­dard­i­s­a­tion pur­poses. We have a happy client and we are also very happy with the per­for­mance of these drives thus far,” con­cludes Win­ter­bot­tom.
