Ryson Maintenance Training after installation is complete

Last week, our service department conducted Ryson Maintenance Training at a new project site for a large manufacturer of packaging materials.

The customer had ordered ten Model 1700-600 Spiral Conveyors. The spirals were installed at the end of ten production lines, conveying finished product up to overhead conveyors which flows to the palletizing area.

The customer also purchased the additional start-up training package we offer. Our technician, certified by PMMI’s training program, reviewed the preventive maintenance procedures and conducted a general product orientation with sixteen of the company’s maintenance staff.

Part of the start-up package includes checking for proper spiral integration and make any adjustments required to optimize performance and longevity. In this case, minor issues were quickly corrected by their controls team.

We consider these site visits to be a win-win. It is an opportunity for us to show off our commitment to customer service and will ultimately decrease our customers’ cost of ownership.

This week we are returning a reconfigured and reconditioned 15 year old Spiral Conveyor back to a bakery in the Midwest.

15 Year Old Spiral Still Going Strong - low cost of ownershipThis 14′-6″ tall counter-clockwise stainless steel spiral with 4 1/4  turns, handling trays and has been in operation for over 15 years. The spiral was reconfigured in our Yorktown production plant from an up spiral to a down spiral (lowerator).Upon reinstallation, the spiral will be used in a new packaging line.

This is an example of our claim of our products having a long life and how we can reduce our customer’s total cost of ownership. The Ryson modular design makes it easy to field modify our spirals  in case of unplanned installation changes or to reconfigure and repurpose the spirals at a later date.

Ryson Reconfigure Spiral ConveyorIn the spring of 2003, Ryson International manufactured a spiral conveyor for a large coffee retailer distribution center. They needed to incline cases and totes between levels of a pick module.

Nine years later, the end-user asked their conveyor integrator: Conveyor Handling Company to re-design their system. A spiral would be needed to decline with different elevation parameters and speed. With Ryson’s proprietary modular design, repurposing an existing spiral is easy, and considerably less expensive than the cost of a new vertical conveyor.

The old spiral was shipped to our manufacturing plant and was reconfigured. We are preparing to ship it back to be installed in their new system layout — At a fraction of the cost of a new spiral.

Spiral Repurposing with RysonWhat sets Ryson apart is that our modular designs allows for our customer’s spirals to be re-purposed to fit new line layouts. Many of these spiral reconfiguration projects are made in the field by our technicians, most of the time over a weekend.

Repurposing a 9-year-old spiral speaks volumes for the longevity and durability of our spiral conveyors and how we can lower the cost of ownership for our clients. Call the Ryson sales team if you think an existing spiral is a good candidate for reconfiguration.
