Conveyors
Oct. 12, 2017 - As bulk handling equipment suppliers continue to make use of new and evolving technologies to develop “smarter” conveyor systems, a Martin Engineering has introduced data tracking with QR codes on its belt cleaners and other components.
Sept. 25, 2017 - With high operational reliability and flexible application possibilities, conveyor belts are indispensable for the transport of bulk goods in industry today. Transportation lines and material streams are important aspects of every production plant. They need to be cost-effective, efficient and above all reliable in continuous operation. A true all-rounder in transport systems for bulk materials is the VecoBelt pipe conveyor from Vecoplan.
Aug. 25, 2017 - Seeing vs. understanding – a common conundrum when it comes to truly understanding challenges. When applied to conveyor operation, “seeing” is most commonly expressed as, “That’s the way we’ve always done it,” or, “This is the way I was taught.” Not necessarily wrong, but perhaps not completely right either.
Aug. 14, 2017 - A new powered conveyor belt tracker from Martin Engineering delivers immediate and continuous precision adjustment of hard-to-track reversing conveyors, helping operators reduce spillage and extend the life of belts and other system components.
June 23, 2017 - Don’t let emergency stop buttons and pull cords lull you into a false sense of security. They’re the conveyor equivalent of the engine oil light on your car’s dashboard: If the light goes on – or you’re reaching for the emergency stop button – it may be too late.
April 27, 2017 - Martin Engineering has introduced a new family of heavy-duty conveyor belt cleaner designs, engineered so the blade cartridge can be pulled away from the belt for safe access and replaced by a single worker.
March 22, 2017 - Martin Engineering has introduced an automated pneumatic tensioning system for belt cleaners. The new offering delivers precise monitoring and tensioning throughout all stages of blade life, reducing the labour typically required to maintain optimum blade pressure and extending the service life of both the belt and the cleaner.
Feb. 22, 2017 - Vortex has announced the passing of its founder, Loren Neil Peterson at 87 years old. Peterson was very familiar to many in the bulk material handling industry.
Jan. 11, 2017 - A significant investment in tooling and product engineering by Martin Engineering has produced a patented conveyor belt cleaner that is projected to reduce the cost of ownership by cleaning better and lasting longer.
Nov. 24, 2016 - An overview of the conveying equipment available to biomass companies in Canada.
Nov. 10, 2016 - The new Conveyor Accessories, Inc. website can be accessed at www.conveyoraccessories.com.
Oct. 19, 2016 - 4B Components Ltd. has released the all new fourth generation Watchdog control unit for preventive maintenance monitoring of bucket elevators and conveyors.
Aug. 3, 2016 - Martin Engineering has introduced a technology that uses the kinetic energy from a moving conveyor belt to generate enough power to run a wide variety of electronic systems. The Martin Roll Gen System is a self-contained mini power station that allows operators to run electrical monitoring systems and safety mechanisms. Able to be retrofitted on existing idler support structures, operators are not required to maintain a special stock of conveyor rollers, as the generator can be employed on virtually any steel roller. The device is considered a first step toward eliminating power production obstacles, as conveyors move into the next generation of “smart systems” that are predicted to be more sustainable and autonomous.
June 17, 2016 – Martin Engineering has introduced a secondary cleaning system that removes nearly all of the carryback left on a belt, including adhesive materials and fines lodged in surface divots and valleys. The Martin WashboxT Cleaning System combines water spray and secondary cleaning blades in an enclosed and self-contained unit, draining residue safely away from the work area. Operators who have installed the system have drastically reduced dust and spillage from carryback, leading to a safer workplace and longer belt life with considerably less downtime.
May 2, 2016 - Superior Industries, Inc. offers a new solution for removing carryback material from the return side of a conveyor belt system. Carryback material is one of the leading causes of extraordinary conveyor maintenance.
January 4, 2016 – Martin Engineering offers an innovative solution that prevents carryback released by secondary conveyor belt cleaners from sticking to the rear slope of the discharge chute.
June 5, 2015 - With more than 500 installations worldwide, the BRUKS Tubulator has developed into the smartest transport system on the market.
April 17, 2015 - The Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers’ Association (CEMA) has issued a new standard, CEMA 576, for the ranking of conveyor belt cleaners, a long-awaited publication that provides performance-based guidelines for specifying belt cleaners by establishing a specific formula for determining the level of difficulty in a given application.
April 2, 2015 - Martin Engineering’s Heavy Duty (HD), Medium Duty (MD) and Light Duty (LD) Impact Cradles feature a bed of steel angles lined by energy-absorbing impact bars with a top layer of low friction, ultra-high molecular weight (UHMW) plastic.  
March 31, 2015 – Legacy Building Solutions now offers a line of fabric buildings that incorporate structural steel beams.
