Conveyor System Modifications, Modernisations, and Upgrades
Why Modify, Modernise, or Upgrade Your Conveyor System?
As industries grow and demands shift, businesses must evolve to stay competitive. Your Conveyor System is no different.
Factors like greater product volumes and increased throughput need calls for system modifications. Other considerations like technology advancements, safety standards, and sustainability play vital roles, too. Modernising or upgrading your conveyors caters to these and offers enhanced speed, capacity, and efficiency.
A timely and strategic upgrade ensures that your business remains at the forefront. Allowing you to harness the full potential of a well-tuned conveyor system. Letting you meet increasing demands while upholding peak operational performance.
Embracing Technological Advancements
The conveyor industry is buzzing with technological evolution. From intelligent sensors to adaptive algorithms, the latest trends in conveyor technology will redefine warehousing and distribution. Automation and control systems, in particular, are crucial. Not only for increasing system productivity but also for accuracy and streamlining operations.
These innovations are about enhancing your current system to its optimal potential. At CSL, we pride ourselves on being tech-forward. We don’t just follow trends – we implement them. Our modernisation approach integrates the newest technological advances into your existing conveyor system. Ensuring you’re always a step ahead in operational excellence.
Ensuring Compliance with Safety Regulations
As the landscape of industrial operations evolves, so do health and safety guidelines. Emphasising the paramount importance of a compliant conveyor system.
Upgrades addressing safety are no longer a luxury but a necessity. This may entail integrating enhanced guardrails, modern emergency stops, or safety control mechanisms.
At CSL, we anticipate safety standards. Our unwavering commitment to safety is manifested in our proactive approach. We endeavour to forecast upcoming shifts. Ensuring your system isn’t just compliant today but prepared for tomorrow.

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.
