Our Equipment Program
We are a manufacturing company that has great competency in engineering and building conveyor systems for consumer products manufacturers. We provide equipment that best fits the customer's needs and requirements for each project, which is grouped into three categories.
Modular Conveyor Express is an assemble-to-order line of conveyors. The modular conveyor line is a pre-engineered line of conveyors with common components kept in stock. When the orders are placed, the conveyors are readily assembled according to the order. Conveyors in the product line offer a robust, proven design at an economical price. As an added benefit, these conveyors are produced very quickly since the engineering is bypassed and the components are already fabricated and kept in stock.
In order to save up-front costs, consider the conveyor project requirements and determine if these modular conveyors can fit into all or part of the product handling line. Modular Conveyor Express offers the same construction, quality and performance as our non-standard or custom conveyors, but the program is comprised of common chain widths as well as common components like returns, supports, brackets, guide rails and motors. In many cases, a rail adjustment is all that is needed to fit the package using frame widths (3 1/4", 4 1/2", 7 1/2", 12" and double 7 1/2") in the program. The website, www.modularconveyorexpress.com, offers AutoCAD templates, FAQs, installation movies and more.
A large part of Nercon's projects fall into the Made-to-Order category. These projects utilize Nercon's standard assemblies and components that allow more flexibility for modifications to meet higher level production requirements compared to the modular conveyor program.
Nercon has taken their most utilized components and assemblies and created engineering and manufacturing efficiencies to produce them. Whenever possible, Nercon will recommend "our" standards on conveyor design and components. While it may require a change in project specifications, consider adopting to our standards to reduce cost on your project investment.
Like Nercon's conveyor standards, our packaging equipment offerings also have standard "modifiable" designs. All of Nercon's accumulators, lifts, laners, combiners and diverters have proven designs that are adaptable to specific applications.
Some customers have specific requirements for their conveyor systems and in fact, have standards of their own. Designed-to-order systems are typically highly automated and have aggressive production goals. Often the goals are to alleviate operating costs, maximize production, and reduce change-over time, reduce product waste or all of the above.
Designed-to-order projects benefit from Nercon's investment in facilities, fabrication equipment and manufacturing processes which assures accuracy on parts and components. Our extensive facilities allow for testing at our factory which leads to faster start-ups on site.
In addition to Nercon's engineering and manufacturing capabilities, our extensive electrical engineering team is an innovative and experienced group driven to bring optimum results for packaging lines. We have an established U.L. panel shop, we wire to actual job panels during testing and Nercon has long-time partnerships with leading edge manufacturers of controls hardware and software.
Engineered-to-order systems may require a higher investment in up-front cost, but these systems are designed for maximum return on investment.
The best high-value, price conscious automation solutions occur when both the customer and Nercon's packaging conveyor experts collaborate. Consulting with Nercon early on in the process will allow the best opportunity for Nercon's conveyor specialists to create efficiencies and save investment dollars on your project.
