One of the most significant advantages of automating, or even partially automating a process, is the time saved by allowing workers to focus on more than one task or eliminating the need for human workers altogether. An uninterrupted process is a significant factor in successful production. From simple to complex automation systems, conveyors keep things moving within the system and in some cases even extend the system’s capacity and runtimes. A conveyor can be a silent hero of a system but the wrong conveyor can be an obtrusive nuisance that needs constant attention and upkeep.
