Klapmuts and Mecotec Engineering
Advantages No more lifting of heavy crates Less stress for hangers as well as birds (thus better meat quality) A fully automated system reducing bird handling Locally built and developed machine with local spares and backup. Maintenance friendly designs reducing downtime and better maintenance time manageability Robust design for the South African environment State of the art automation system with 19” touch panel PC for self-diagnostic and problem solving.
Samples of improved designs The indicated section bolts out enabling the complete shaft with sprockets to be removed for maintenance
The conveyor tracks are assembled with tabs to handle more load
Advantages on the Control side The new Module loader boasts with the new ABB AC500 automation platform ensuring stability and reliability. The system has a full self-diagnostic feature that will test all the equipment and sensors when in maintenance mode. In production mode its scans for potential problems and will recommend solutions on the touch panel. With the new software remote login from anywhere through a network into the plc and system is possible as an optional extra.
Spares and equipment Equipment and spares are locally available: (all equipment and spares are ISO 9001:2001) SEW geared motors Parker Pneumatics Sneider Group electrical equipment ABB automation products KSB/Stork pumps Bearings, Chains, sprockets etc. from local suppliers
Specification The ModuleLoader is capable of handling birds on a 8hr shift ( birds per hr) With a standard 4 layer module with 3 drawers per layer the total weight, on a standard truck with 24 modules and 50 kg per drawer, will be 14,4 tons For increased capacity a 5 layer module can be used increasing the tonnage per truck to 18 tons.
