Challenge

A-One approached UniTrak Powderflight as they were looking to upgrade their factory and make it more efficient. This would involve reducing the amount of dust and spillages whilst also saving time on packaging processes. Previously, once the feed products were mixed, they were dropped into a tote bin and then moved onto the bagging mixers using forklift trucks. This process could take from 10 to 15 minutes per mix. By installing aeromechanical conveyors to transport the products for packaging they would save time and reduce wastage. (Read More)

Customerization

After discussing the requirements with A-One, UniTrak Powderflight recommended both models M100 and M75 of their Powderflight aeromechanical conveyors to handle different volumes of material. This particular equipment is designed to fit physically restricted operating conditions. For companies that work under tight dimensional constraints the operating angles and in-feed arrangements can be tailored to suit the individual situation. Powderflight aeromechanical conveyors are cost effective to operate as well as giving minimal noise disruption. They can handle a variety of different types of materials and do not separate blended constituents. ( To read the full article click here )

Outcome

A-One have been using four of the Powderflight model M100 aeromechanical conveyors and two of the M75 model from September 2012 onwards at their North Yorkshire production site. Since then they have noticed an increase in output due to the boost in efficiency at the factory. This stems from a number of improvements brought about by the new machinery. (Read More)

Testimonial

After sales support is very important to us. They stock spare parts at their Glossop site and the fact that they are easily accessible is a major plus. We haven’t had any problems with the equipment that UniTrak supplied since we started using it but it’s good to know that they are on hand to sort out any problems if necessary.”
