In a major investment, Vacu-Lug has commissioned a new conveyor system for its Grantham retread tyre manufacturing centre. The new system runs the total length of the buffing and examination area and is used to transport casings from buffing to the building area.
“The new conveyor effectively replaces a number of old manual handling systems and as such represents a significant step forward with regard to operating efficiency and health and safety at work,” says Vacu-Lug Managing Director, Tim Hercock.
“We identified the need for change as part of our programme of continuous improvement, which seeks to advance our production processes and enhance the working environment. The new conveyor, is quick, quiet, simple and safe in operation and we therefore regard its installation as a great success in terms of meeting our continuous improvement objectives.”
