Taking Up Less Space with Your Conveyor Systems

Space in most warehouse is at a premium. Warehouse managers are forced to constantly assess their current space usage and look for ways to maximize it. Sometimes that means putting in a mezzanine level, rearrange their industrial storage racks, or going without new equipment that could take up too much valuable space. If you’ve been putting off the installation of a conveyor system because you are concerned it’s going to take up too much space in your warehouse, DAK Equipment & Engineering has great news.

 

We Can Help You Save Space

Industrial conveyor systems don’t have to take up a lot of room in your warehouse. There are several things you can do to get the conveyor system you need installed without sacrificing your space.

 

Use a manual system.

Some non-powered systems take up less space because you don’t have to make room for motors and command centers. Don’t write all powered systems, though; some are more space-efficient than you might think.

 

Elevate your conveyor.

Just like a mezzanine level can help make use of the space over your head, a conveyor system can do the same thing. Powered systems can provide lift to move products up from the warehouse floor, transport them across the warehouse, and take them back down to floor level again.

 

Consider what you are saving.

While you are going to take up some space with a conveyor, you may be saving space elsewhere. Are you eliminating pathways that will no longer be needed for human access? Are you eliminating cart storage by moving things automatically? You might actually be gaining space.

Could Your Conveyor Systems Generate Their Own Power?

One of the potential drawbacks of powered conveyor systems is that you need, well, power. The system relies on electricity to move the belt of the conveyor and move your products from one area to another. This need may require you to run electrical cables through your warehouse, depending on your set up and where your conveyor system is going to operate, making it considerably more expensive than other conveying options such as an unpowered system. But is it possible to have your conveyor system generate power for other purposes?

 

What One Australian Company is Doing

According to a recent article on AustralianMining.com, one company is using “kinetic energy from a moving conveyor belt to generate power to run electronic systems within a power station.” The power station gives power to safety systems and monitoring stations for the conveyor system.

“‘We found we could draw energy from a moving belt by attaching an independent generator directly to one of the rollers,’ said Paul Harrison, Global Engineering Manager.” This gave the team the ability to power their monitoring equipment without running more cables or drawing power from other sources.

This is an ingenious way to harness the power of a conveyor system that’s already in place. It’s also an eco-friendly solution; by generating their own power, they don’t have to pull that electricity from other sources which could be damaging to the environment.
