But first, what is a material handling system?
Good question, what exactly is a material handling system? It is difficult to give one clear answer to this because there are different types of systems, each designed for different purposes.
A material handling system is a trusted system that helps to store, move, protect and control products and materials. This is more efficient and also, a lot safer. And last but not least, it’s cost-effective.
The handling systems can save you a lot of money in the long term. An example is that the machines we build are time-saving. Besides, distribution is a lot faster and you no longer need employees for these activities.
Of course, machines consist of sensitive parts that require frequent maintenance. “Do you not spend a lot of time on this?” Not with the Apollo systems. Of course, you have to maintain the systems well, but you will not spend much time on this, since the Apollo systems are very qualitative and low maintenance.
So why is a handling system cost-effective?
It saves a lot of time;
The maintenance of the systems is minimal;
One drive motor, which saves conserving energy.
What kind of material handling systems are there?
As we just said, there are different material handling systems, each with its own function and purpose. At Apollo, we offer several such as:
Spiral conveyors transport products up or down (or both!) in a continuous flow and have proven to be a very reliable concept in vertical conveying. Spiral conveyors move loads from level to level quickly and efficiently, without interrupting the transport process, without additional manual handling or transfers to other equipment. The conveyors are very fast and take up little space because they transport vertically.

A bucket elevator is an elevator that transports bulk materials, mainly grain and fertilizer pellets. These materials are transported vertically. The elevators can carry a variety of materials, from light to heavy.

Facility and space considerations;
It is also important to consider the purpose of the system. Where are you going to use the system for? A bucket elevator is often used for materials that must be handled with care. Usually, these are materials such as; grains, coffee, sweets, sugar, rice, beans, pet food, peanuts, flakes, seeds, tea, and much more.
Spiral conveyors, on the other hand, are widely used in the food, beverage, warehousing, newspaper, pet food, and personal care industries. These systems mainly transport bags, bundles, bins, trays, cans, bottles, containers, cardboard boxes, packaged and unpackaged items.
Spiral conveyors are mainly used in warehouses and bucket elevators are widely used in the agricultural sector. Our product twister is widely used in processes where the position of the product has to change during the packaging process.
Okay! Are there other advantages of your handling systems?
