Logistics BusinessUK Automation Specialist Launches Spiral Conveyor Range

Nerak Wiese is launching a range of spiral conveyors. Capable of handling a variety of unit loads, spiral conveyors are the ideal solution where a continuous vertical elevation process is required, in applications such as internet fulfilment, end-of-line operations, general warehousing and food processing. “We’re very excited about our new spiral conveyor range,” said Simon Musgrave, Sales Director, “as it means we are now a ‘one-stop-shop’ for vertical elevation needs. We had some very promising discussions about these new solutions with both existing and potential clients at the IMHX show recently and there is obviously demand for these high-quality products in combination with our established conveying expertise.”

Modular design

Modular design enables the spiral elevators to be configured to suit the customer’s specific conveying needs. “This is particularly useful,” explained Simon Musgrave, “where the product needs to be turned through 90 degrees during elevation, avoiding the need for expensive cross transfer conveyors.” Available in both 400mm and 600mm belt widths, the spiral elevators offer a capacity of up to 3,000 units per hour. “We have considerable design expertise in-house,” added Simon Musgrave, “so we can tailor our standard solutions in order to solve diverse material handling problems.” Nerak Wiese says that the new spiral conveyors offer quiet operation, low maintenance requirements and a long life.

Diverse industries

As well as its handling solutions for unit loads – including a variety of pallet lifts; continuous platform elevators; multi-floor mezzanine solutions; paternosters; and single- and multi-carriage reciprocating hoists – Nerak Wiese also supplies continuous and pendulum bucket elevators for the smooth conveying of bulk solids. The Brecon-based firm serves a diverse range of industry sectors, with clients including end-users such as John Lewis, Amazon and XPO Logistics, as well as many system integrators such as Dematic, Vanderlande and Swisslog.
