Dairy Crest and Plysu Reap Benefits of Automated Conveying.
The Dawson Cable Conveyor makes use of 9.5mm diameter nylon covered steel cables supported on a continuous polyethylene runner. This cable conveyor can carry the polyethylene bottles at a rate of 9000 per hour over the 150m distance between sites, using only a single drive unit. Compared to other systems, cable conveyors are relatively inexpensive to manufacture and install, with quieter operation and requiring minimal maintenance.
