Conveyor Systems Cape Town
A conveyor system is a common piece of mechanical handling equipment that moves materials from one location to another. Conveyors are especially useful in applications involving the transportation of heavy or bulky materials. Conveyor systems allow quick and efficient transportation for a wide variety of materials, which make them very popular in the material handling and packaging industries. Many kinds of conveying systems are available, and are used according to the various needs of different industries. There are chain conveyors (floor and overhead) as well. Chain conveyors consist of enclosed tracks, I-Beam, towline, power & free, and hand pushed trolleys.
Conveyors systems from Western cape Engineering companies VS Conveyor systems from China
Importing your conveyor system from China:
You will acquire the system for a possible better cost. The issue is that generally, Chinese quality is below par when compared to a reputable South African manufacturer’s. This could mean the system may breakdown sooner. If something were to go wrong with an imported Chinese conveyor system, back up would be an issue, as the manufacturer is not in your country. This means having to either send it back to China for repairs or try to source out a South African engineering company that is able to repair conveyor system parts. In conclusion, probable cheaper costs but higher risk and possibly slower production time, if system breaks down.
Quality materials used from South African companies and great quality of work because of experience in the manufacturing of conveyor systems, meaning excellent conveyor systems will be produced, at a possible higher price, because of the quality. Having an engineer in your area produce your conveyor system will also mean fast action on repairs, if needed. In conclusion, probable higher cost, lower risk and not too much of an impact on production time if the system were to need repairs.
