Five Things Fences and Conveyor Have in Common

There are several things fence building and conveyor manufacturing have in common. Before purchasing, both require planning and forethought, such as function, style, delivery, quality and accessories.

What is your application’s primary function?

a. Moving empty pallets to return to an inline system
  b. Reduce foot traffic around fork lift pallet load/unload stations
  c. Create stacker and unstackers for pallets and slip sheets before the product is loaded

What style should you use?

a. Fencing comes in panels, pickets, posts and rails. It can be made of wood, vinyl, chain link or metal. It comes in a variety of heights.
  b. Conveyor is tailored to the specific application. Capacity: what’s being palletized and moved? What is the product? Boxes, bottles, drums – the list is endless.
  c. Upon what type of pallet is product being loaded? This plays a huge role in determining the best conveyor needed for the application. Is the pallet a two-way or four-way entry? What direction are the deckboards and stringers running and how many are there?

How fast do you need the conveyor?

a. Fencing can be built board by board or by sections depending on your need.
  b. Similarly, Alba’s pre-engineered conveyor (lift and rotate devices, turntables, drag chain and CDLR conveyor) can be manufactured in the same way. Utilizing the models eliminates the need for approval drawings.
  c. With the components already in stock, we can get it out the door quicker with faster manufacturing and response time.

Quality and Installation matter.

a. Fences come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials. More importantly, there’s a major difference if installers use nails or screws. In the short term, nails save time but in the long-term they create more headaches and more repairs as the nails rust and work themselves out due to wind and weather.
  b. The same is true with channel steel conveyor construction. Short term, the nut and bolt construction is easier for the manufacturer but long term, it creates maintenance nightmares for your customers. Alba conveyor is created with a welded structural steel frame construction. It is a better quality with a longer shelf life and your customers will have reduced maintenance headaches two years down the road since bolts loosen or become damaged by forklift abuse when you use a formed channel construction.

Bells and Whistles

a. Fencing can be fancy or plain, picket style or lattice, wire or fabric, gated or ungated, with or without cap posts.
  b. In the same way, Alba conveyor comes with a variety of standard accessories which will make it easy to install (fully assembled right out the box) with plug and play capabilities, saving time and money during installation. We can add pin stops, blade stops, pre-mounted photo eyes, junction boxes, motor disconnects, fork truck stops and tread plates.
