KP Industries is knowledge & performance to Gravity Conveyors
Gravity systems are extremely flexible and adptable units available with a range of rollers or skate wheels, and ball units for positioning. Able to accommodate bends, inclines and spirals, the units can be fixed or flexible and have one or two free ends, allowing the load to be delivered directly to where it is required.
KP Industries are specialists in the design, manufacture and installation of bespoke automated Gravity Conveyors.
The implementation of a project starts with a visit from one of our engineers to capture the key requirements of the project, gathering data such as throughput, product sizes, weights and process requirements. Our team will then produce a concept design and specification which will be reviewed with the client to ensure the proposed equipment is fit for purpose and meets all the key requirements to a cost effective budget.
Once the Gravity Conveyor concept is agreed, and following confirmation of contract award, the concept design is progressed by the engineering team with the use of the latest 3D Computer Aided Design and structural calculation software.
In parallel, our control system engineers will develop the control system using EPlan P8 design software. As well as pre-commission of the PLC software and development of the HMI control screens.
Once issued to manufacture, our highly skilled workshop staff will begin the process by fabricating the key structural elements, before assembling the system ready for internal testing.
Throughout the project, our project management team will be orchestrating the huge number of supplier, staff and sub-contractors that are required to bring a complex Gravity Conveyors to life.
Following Factory Acceptance Testing and customer by-off, the Gravity Conveyor is dismantled and shipped to the client’s site, ready for final installation and commissioning.
All equipment is thoroughly tested and certified by our LEEA accredited engineers to provide the customer with the necessary safety and regulatory certifications required.
