When choosing the conveyor pay attention for the friction of the conveyor belt. The conveyor shown in adjacent picture is equipped with ball bearings which needs 50% less energy as outwardly same conveyors with sliding conveyor belt.
Roller conveyors are also very energy efficient, because one drive can operate for long distances. In case of accumulation, the drive belt can be removed from the roll(s) and thus save energy. Also, roller conveyors are therefore called roller friction conveyors .
By making a right choose you will save 50% of energy consumption.
How can I save packaging material?
The amount of packaging material can be influenced by the packaging design, the thickness of the shrink film and the amount of the material used for pallet wrapping.
The pallet wrapper in adjacent picture is manufactured by Tecnowrapp, totally new, patented TwinRing double ring- pallet wrapper. Video and other technical data can be found in "Products" - "Wrapping" - Technowrapp- site, and of course, www.technowrapp.com
Our approach is to use as little packaging material, however, without compromising on performance. Even as little as 76 grams of stretch film is sufficient to fulfill the requirements of the transport pallet wrapping. This saves money and the environment.
By making the right choose you will save material up to 30% in this point of packaging line.
Replace compressed air by blower !
Compressed air is a very expensive energy, and it is used quite often misappropriated in industry .
By replacing compressed air nozzles by a high pressure blower and air knives gives significantly better results and saves a lot of energy. In most cases the payback is 6-12 months, and then everything after that is just plain saving.
By replacing compressed air nozzles you save up to 70% in energy.
