Machinery Automation

Our motion control solutions can be found in a variety of important applications used within calibration, material handling and conveyor systems. These systems are responsible for keeping machinery moving and output at an optimum level. It’s clear that gas struts have an essential part to play in a wide variety of industry-related applications which is why the design and manufacturing process is key to the success of these projects.

Conveyor belt

Conveyor systems 

Our Fixed Force Compression Struts play a vital role in conveyor systems and in many cases are considered a standard piece of mechanical handling equipment to move goods, products, raw goods, and other materials from one location to another, usually in the same area or building. 

In order to work effectively and require the least possible maintenance, our gas springs are made from the highest-quality materials by expert engineers so you can be confident in the durability of our products. Whether you have a belt or drag conveyor, we can design a solution that will work for you. 

Maintenance access panels and roller conveyor access points are incredibly useful for businesses as they provide the vital access needed to carry out routine checks and improvements to heavy-duty machinery. 

Our standard fixed force gas struts are found on vehicles, machine guards, access panels, lockers and lids have been designed to lift heavy weights effortlessly and safely. But, in reality, there is an almost limitless number of applications this range can be used on. 

Electrical control systems 

Electrical control systems are a complex combination of various essential parts and for many applications, our locking shrouds are one of them. The role of a control system is to manage, command, direct, or regulate the behaviour of other devices or systems using control loops which is one of the reasons the correct motion control solution is key. 

There are other motion control solutions that can be used within these projects including our locking gas strut as it can be stopped in any position. Fitted with a locking valve, they only allow movement when the release pin, located at the end of the rod, is depressed. This will usually be achieved by using a cable-operated release mechanism, or directly attached paddle. 

With this in mind, the motion control solution that is selected needs to have the range of motion and durability required to keep this piece of kit working at optimum standards. Our team of engineers are here to answer any questions you might have throughout the design and manufacturing process, providing you with a solution that is tailored to your exact needs. 

Material handling systems 

The supply chain is a series of processes that encompass everything from the production to the distribution of a product and each part of this complex process requires different motion control solutions to ensure that they are able to function at their best. 

There is a wide range of machinery that is needed to facilitate this journey. We can support all aspects of items that need to be moved. For example, our Fixed Force Compression Gas Struts are designed and manufactured to help you to lift, lower, and control exactly as needed. 

Another example of machinery that is used in material handling systems is the Vibratory Bowl Feeders these machines orientate your products carefully, as well as guaranteeing a consistent and accurate flow of components into your production machinery.

Machine tools 

Maintaining machinery is a key part of ensuring that it can function at an optimum level. For this, maintenance access to machine tools, bar feeders and other manufacturing equipment means that safety is key, the correct motion control solution makes all the difference for your project.   

Our locking shroud is an effective solution for access door support as they provide the security needed to protect maintenance personnel when working on the delicate electrical machinery inside.
