Enmin’s latest modular conveyor system was developed to meet industry demand for more flexible and cost effective equipment. Enmin GM Anthony Gallaher writes.

Food and ingredient manufacturing is a fast moving industry, which means equipment needs can change rapidly, often at great cost to businesses. Enmin recognised a need for equipment that could be added to, extended and modified over time, as a company’s needs evolved.

Mi-CON (Modular Incline Conveyor System) has the key benefit of being modular, so it eliminates equipment redundancy and can expand with business growth. The flexible modular design coupled with a range of standard parts and components, ensures suitability for multiple applications.

It is the only conveyor system on the market that can be delivered flat packed, allowing fast and cost-effective delivery and simple installation by the customer’s maintenance team.

It can also be delivered to the customer partially complete or fully complete for quicker installation and commissioning.

The modular intermediate section can be used to extend the available in-feed and out-feed sections and also increase the overall discharge height of the conveyor. With two standard belt widths of 500 and 700 milimeters and incline angle options of 60 and 75 degrees, the Mi-CON will suit a wide variety of applications and space constraints.

The system can utilise either a PU flat, scooped cleated wave wall, or a plastic modular design depending on the application.

Fully Australian made, the Mi-CON system is constructed of 304 stainless steel and all components and running gear used is FDA approved and suitable for a full wash-down environment. Its options include accumulation, takeaway, bag conditioning/flattening delivery conveyors and packing tables.

The system is designed for any food and ingredient manufacturing facility.
