Conveyor System Maintenance and Mechanical Servicing: Ensuring Smooth Operations
At Conveyor Systems Ltd (CSL), we understand that a conveyor system is a sophisticated machine comprising numerous moving components, all susceptible to wear and tear through regular usage. At CSL, we stress the importance of mechanical servicing and planned preventative maintenance (PPM). Our mission is clear: to guarantee that your system keeps running seamlessly.
Safety First: Our Core Principle
Safety lies at the heart of our maintenance services. Proper upkeep of conveyor system features is essential for their effective operation, ensuring both compliance with regulations and the safety of your workforce.
For instance, finger guards play a pivotal role in protecting workers from potential harm, ranging from clothing entanglement to severe injuries. Routine maintenance not only keeps these guards secure but also ensures their ongoing effectiveness.
Addressing Safety Concerns with Belt Conveyors
In the realm of belt conveyors, misaligned belts can introduce significant safety risks, such as unwanted spillage or even fires ignited by friction. Regular maintenance routines enable the early detection of misalignment issues, allowing for swift corrective measures before they escalate into safety hazards.
Safety Considerations for Roller Conveyors
Roller conveyors come with their own unique set of safety considerations. Regular inspections are crucial to confirm that rollers rotate freely without any signs of wear or seizing. Seized rollers can lead to product build-up, placing strain on the system and potentially causing hazards.
The Crucial Role of Regular Maintenance
No matter the type of conveyor system you operate, maintenance remains pivotal. Belt conveyors demand frequent inspections to prevent slippage and excessive wear, while roller conveyors necessitate check-ups to identify worn-out rollers and ensure proper alignment.

Conveyor System Maintenance and Mechanical Servicing FAQs
How do you ensure the ongoing maintenance of automation systems?
At CSL, we offer comprehensive maintenance services designed to proactively address any issues that may arise with your automation systems. Our team conducts regular inspections, performs necessary repairs, and ensures that your systems operate at peak efficiency. This approach minimises downtime and optimises productivity, providing you with reliable, long-term support.
What types of follow-on projects do you typically handle for expanding organisations?
We cater to a wide range of follow-on projects driven by our clients’ growth and evolving needs. These projects can include expanding existing automation systems to accommodate increased demand, upgrading technologies, optimising workflows, or even designing entirely new automation solutions. Our flexible approach ensures that we adapt to your organisation’s changing requirements.
How do you tailor automation solutions to meet our organisation's unique needs?
At CSL, we understand that every organisation has distinct requirements. Our approach begins with a thorough understanding of your specific needs, challenges, and goals. We then customise our automation solutions to precisely align with your unique circumstances, ensuring that the systems we install are perfectly tailored to your operations and objectives.
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.
