In any packaging line, conveyors perform an essential duty—they bring packages from on station to the next. Unless your staff includes a number of people that can do this manually, which is an unrealistic expectation for a majority of companies, you’ll want to use a conveyor system. When purchasing conveyors, however, most companies look for ways to cut costs. One such way to stay on a tight budget is to consider buying used and reconditioned belt conveyor systems for your packaging line.
Types of Belt Conveyors Used in Packaging
Depending on what sort of product your company packages, you could use one type of conveyor or a variety of them. Some of the types of conveyors commonly used in packaging lines include bucket conveyors and bucket elevators, bulk product conveyors, fastback conveyors, heat and control conveyors for specialty products, U-shaped conveyors, and many more. In order to save money on your packaging line, you may want to consider browsing High Performance Packaging’s selection of used and reconditioned conveyors.
Benefits of Purchasing Used Equipment
Aside from the obvious benefit of saving money when buying used equipment, opting for reconditioned equipment for your packaging line may allow you to purchase better quality machinery—for example, your current budget for machinery might only allow you to purchase lesser-known or lower-quality brands of equipment. If you opt to choose used equipment, however, that same dollar amount might be able to cover the cost of a used machine from a well-known and trusted brand. Some of the brands that we stock at High Performance Packaging include industry leasers such as Smalley, Unitrak, Dorner, Deamco, Kamflex, and many more. If you’re on a tight budget, you could benefit greatly from considering purchasing used.
