Bespoke Automations, Conveyors and Solutions

Solutions tailored to your needs

In today’s environments of eCommerce and warehousing, the need for adaptable automation has never been more crucial. At CSL, we recognise that no two industrial challenges are the same. This is why we champion the concept of Bespoke Automation. Our commitment to this was born from the fact that modern facilities face increasing pressures to increase efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Our conveyor solutions embody robustness and reliability. They bring a tangible return on investment, often within a short time frame – sometimes less than 12 months.

Bespoke Automation is the answer to many things. Including overcoming space issues, optimising vertical movement, enhancing flexibility and more. With our proven technology at our core, CSL is your trusted partner in crafting bespoke handling and machinery solutions. Ones that adapt seamlessly to your unique industrial needs.

Delving into bespoke systems

Bespoke Automation comes in many forms and addresses a wide range of industrial needs. It spans from simple product transfers between assembly or workstations. To more complex end-of-line processes involving packing, labelling, wrapping, and palletizing. Even seemingly modest conveyor projects can provide significant benefits within a short timeframe. Yet, automation hardware is only as effective as the controlling software behind it. We offer a suite of control and integration packages to ensure seamless operation within your business.

Our offerings include;

  • Remote operator touchscreen HMI stations
  • Production data and reporting capabilities
  • Advanced features like barcode reading
  • Stock replenishment.

We commit to ensuring that our hardware and software work in harmony with your solutions.

“I have found working with CSL the ideal partnership, they understood the brief and worked closely with CEF to ensure the design met all of the criteria. The support from start to finish was excellent. The project ran smoothly from start to finish. The system has made our new warehouse very efficient and allowed us to increase the throughput”

Divisional Manager, CEF Online

“As this was a new facility it was difficult to visualise the conveyor system prior to the mezzanine floor installation, but CSL provided a detailed 3D drawing which included both the mezzanine and the conveyors which brought clarity to this. The install process was smooth and the end results have allowed us to increase control, flexibility & volumes”

“We have worked with CSL previously and after many years of reliable operation we decided to use CSL again to design, supply and carry out the installation. As with the last system the benefits became almost immediately evident”
