Here at Reid Fabricators Inc., we have extensive experience in working on industrial equipment of all kinds—after all, we’ve been doing it for over 30 years. One of the many types of equipment we work on is conveyors, and in this article, we’ll go over a few signs you might need to replace your existing conveyor with a new one.
- Frequent Malfunctions – One clear sign you need to replace your conveyor is frequent malfunctions. If your conveyor breaks down often, you are losing valuable work time, which, in turn, hurts your business and your bottom line. While it’s possible to get your conveyors repaired, if you find yourself dealing with malfunctions on a regular basis, then we encourage you to consider replacing your conveyor altogether.
- Insufficient Capacity – Another reason why you might need to replace your existing conveyor is because it’s simply too small to keep up with your needs. If your operation has grown over the years, you may need to upgrade to conveyors with a larger capacity to keep up with demand.
- Improved Efficiency – A third reason why you should consider replacing your old conveyors is because your current model may not meet your standards for efficiency. Advances in industrial equipment are being made every day, and many new conveyors are designed to use as little energy as possible while still more than keeping up with the demands of your operation. If your current conveyors are on the older side, we encourage you to look into newer models.
