The Blue Chip multi-national client wanted a fully integrated system that demanded vertical conveying and feeding of products, and all within the restrictions of a developed factory.
After working with a number of their sites in the UK and mainland Europe Gough Engineering were able to develop a complete system that utilised factory space and maximised product output while ensuring cleanliness.
The project was developed with engineers from the corporations Nigeria site and their UK Project Managers alongside Gough’s own senior applications engineers.
Results & Conclusions:
The system contained three lines each containing two Swinglink elevators and two Vibrating Gough Feeders linked with a bespoke Conveyor System, including a Gough Storeveyor. The product, wrapped sweets, runs at 1.6 tonne per hour on a 24 hour cycle and supplies the company with its confectionery for the African market.
