Martin Engineering introduces “New Thinking” for conveyor engineering.
(Neponset IL)–Martin Engineering, the leading international supplier of systems and services to improve the handling of bulk materials, has introduced a new standard for the design and construction of belt conveyors.
Christened the EVO™ Architecture, the new system is described as a new architecture for modern conveying. The EVO™ System uses a new engineering concept to produce clean, safe, and productive belt conveyors from the ground up.
“The EVO™ Conveyor Architecture offers a complete and re-thought system that is cost competitive with conventional design standards, yet that will provide improved performance in cleanliness, service-friendliness, and safety,” said R. Todd Swinderman, Chief Technology Officer for Martin Engineering.
The EVO™ Conveyor Architecture is designed to provide complete zones of a belt conveyor, including the Tail Zone, the Load Zone, the Carrying Zone, and the Head Zone. At this time, only the Load Zone of the EVO™ Standard has been introduced. Other zones will be introduced in the next 18 months.
The EVO™ Conveyor Architecture System is composed of a set of engineered components to be combined into a belt conveyor system. The components can be installed individually, in combination to construct each zone, or in a full new conveyor. They are suitable for use in new construction or retrofit.
EVO™ Architecture Components presently available include:
§ EVO™ Structure System utilizes special “half-hex” channel and angled reinforcement designed to minimize material accumulation.
§ EVO™ Impact Cradles cushions impact in the loading zone.
§ EVO™ Support Cradles stabilizes the belt line and reduce spillage.
§ EVO™ Impact Idlers and Carrying Idlers use slide-in/slide-out bases to simplify installation and service.
