Axiom GB New Design Merge Conveyor

Axiom GB Stand: D23
Multi-Belt Conveyor - Merge Conveyor open for servicing

As part of a cross-docking cell being installed in Chicago, USA, two multi-belt conveyors (MBC's) were required to merge the packages off the inducts to the main through conveyor leading to the DWS.  As part of the overall system design, Axiom GB took the opportunity to redesign these to improve the performance.  

As part of the continual product development undertaken at Axiom GB, when the order was won for a cross-docking cell, the merge conveyors were reviewed and redesigned.  The target of the redesign:

  • Simplfy the number of the components required.
  • Look at the method of manufacture of components and incorporate additive manufactured 3D printed parts where  feasible and justified.
  • Improve access from either side for servicing after installation.

The goals of the redesign were met by:

  • End in-fill components 3D printed.
  • Main conveyor deck hinged from both sides to allow access when installed (see attached image).
  • Standard timing belt conveyors used to improve capacity and longevity in service.

Let's talk... We'd love to help solve your materials handling challenges.

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

  • "We’ve never seen a show like it! Within six minutes of the inaugural IWLEX (Inside Warehouse & Logistics Exhibition) opening, we had our first inquiry in the bag. The two days in May at the Telford International Centre went on to be the most successful trade show we have attended in terms of deals created at the event itself and immediately afterward."
    Hi-Level Mezzanines Ltd
  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our time at IWLEX. It is a valuable exhibition for companies looking for the highest quality visitors. Visitor numbers may be lower than at other exhibitions, simply because the organisers have done a fantastic job in screening out time-wasters! Everyone who came onto our stand was a motivated buyer and we have had several high-quality leads since the exhibition. We recommend IWLEX to anyone looking for relevant leads within the world of warehousing and logistics. Thank you, Justin and Nairn!”

We're looking forward to meeting a new group of buyers and becoming part of the new IWLEX community."
