Conveyor Installation & Relocation FAQs
Is relocating a conveyor system cost-effective compared to buying a new one?
In many cases, yes. Relocating can save on the cost of purchasing an entirely new system, especially if the current system is still in good working condition.
Can you handle systems that weren't originally installed by your company?
Absolutely. We’re experienced in dealing with various conveyor systems, regardless of the original manufacturer or installer.
What safety measures do you implement during installation and relocation?
We adhere to all industry safety standards, ensuring our team and your site remain safe. This includes safety training, the use of personal protective equipment, and regular safety audits.
Will there be downtime for my operations during relocation?
While some downtime is inevitable, we work closely with you to minimize any disruptions to your operations, often by scheduling work during off-hours or downtime periods.
Can you integrate new components into an existing conveyor system during relocation?
Yes, we can assess the current setup and recommend and integrate any desired upgrades or additions.
How do you handle older conveyor systems that may have obsolete parts?
We have extensive experience in sourcing hard-to-find components or recommending suitable replacements.
Our Maintenance options include:
- Annual service contracts
- Ad-hoc/reactive service visits
- Visual inspections Scheduled/Preventative maintenance visits
- Wear part replacement programmes
- System health checks
- Remote dial in health checks
We understand the importance of your conveyor system within your warehouse/fulfillment centre/factory, in the rare event of a breakdown we will organise one of our qualified/experienced engineers to visit site ASAP and carry out the repairs needed to get you operational again.
We can repair conveyors installed by ourselves and other integrators, our engineers specialise in equipment manufactured by Conveyor Units (Uni-XU), Interroll, Ambaflex, Qimarox, Intralox, etc.
Having a supply of consumable and critical spare parts on site is always highly recommended, we estimate that more than 85% of equipment breakdowns can be repaired on the initial engineer visit if parts are held on site!
The supply of spare parts could involve anything from adhoc ordering of individual parts, “front line” breakdown spares kits, critical wear parts or comprehensive spares packages to suit your bespoke system which can fitted by either your in-house maintenance engineers or fully experienced CSL engineers. Spare parts packages can be mechanical, electrical or control based or even a mix to suit your system and requirements.
We can supply both from our own stock of critical genuine spares and a large inventory from our suppliers. Expedited delivery options are also available.
Modernisation & Upgrades
However well designed a conveyor system layout is, sometimes changes in products, company direction, increases in throughputs or changes in scope occur, meaning the previous conveyor system will need changes.
These changes often include:
- Fire escape route changes
- Change in routes/scope or function
- Safety system upgrades
- Improvements in energy efficiency
- Control and software changes
Our continual improvement programs will help you to optimise workflow while also reducing the operation costs. CSL understand the importance of your conveyor system and will define a detailed plan of implementation to minimise downtime and disruption.
By carrying out these changes not only does it save money over a new system it also cuts down on downtime and environmental wastage.
Over time safety requirements and legislation change, to help keep your conveyor system compliant and operationally safe CSL can carry out modifications to an existing system and its safety functions.
Often the suggested safety upgrades and modifications include:
- Pullcord e-stop systems
- Additional & relocation of e-stops
- Safety barriers & bump stops
- Pedestrian barriers including gates
- Traffic barriers
- Build back sensors
- Walk over structures
- Retro fitting lift up gates
A lot of these changes are simple and can help organisations remain safe and complaint with health and safety legislation. A quick on-site survey can help us identify possible improvements and make suggestions for these changes.
Relocations & Decommissioning
For multiple reasons materials handling systems need relocating, this is usually within the same building or to a new facility. Our project team will carry out a site and equipment survey and will produce a project plan. This would be similar to the work carried out when the system was initially installed and will ensure the equipment will fit in the new location either in the same layout or with a re-configuration.
The equipment will then be disconnected and moved to the new location before being re-fixed and re-connected, this might also involve adding to the system or making software and control modifications.
Our projects and engineering teams can also assist with complete end of usable life decommissioning prior to recycling, this includes disconnecting and making safe the electrics, removal and palletising before collection.
