conveyor design

Engineered For Evolution

Richards-Wilcox Understands Your Factory And The Future.

Here’s how:

  • We align conveyor function and purpose to optimize productivity
  • Obtain plant layout to determine where the conveyor is to be installed and create a path that connects it with load-unload areas and process equipment for smooth operation 
  • Identify size and weight of product to be transported and consider any process equipment the product passes through to design a carrier that allows easy loading and unloading
  • Richards-Wilcox Conveyors can withstand temperatures as high as 450 F
  • Identify electrical characteristics, carrier spacing and track elevations to enable easy and safe interaction between worker and carrier
  • Calculate chain pull to maintain the normal operating speed of a conveyor under a rated capacity load
