When a Leicestershire based rock quarry had issues with process control, it turned the Drive Solutions Centre partner Lawrence Electrical, for a solution.
The speed control of a tray feed conveyor was the issue as it was inefficient and needed an overhaul.
Lawrence Electrical developed a solution, which included:
The customer has seen vast improvements in process control and throughput. These include a reduction in the mechanical wear and smoother starts and stops. There is also improved protection against overloads resulting in a reduction in potential asset damage.
Finally, the customer has seen significant energy savings during the times when the conveyer is lightly loaded.
