RECYCO, who were the first in Ireland to take ownership of a waste robotics system, now required a bespoke QC conveyor for their fibre line. REP-TEC were delighted to be awarded this exciting new project, taking it from initial concept to installation and commissioning.
During the site survey, it was clear that the QC conveyor would have to be customised so it would work on different levels and take feed from three separate conveyors. It would also require a significant amount of planning to ensure successful installation underneath existing conveyance and in the middle of the MRF. REP-TEC, who are experts in automated equipment for recycling companies, worked closely with the customer at the initial stages to ensure the completed conveyor would be exactly what was required and that the parts used in the build were in line with existing consumables.
REP-TEC conveyors are designed for busy environments with high throughputs and steep inclines. Once manufactured and installed, the 8.4m long conveyor got straight to work and began successfully collecting multiple fibre fractions, transferring them to a final QC location, before dropping into the bunker.
Garrett Loughran, Sales Manager for REP-TEC says, “We are delighted to team up with such an innovative company like RECYCO for a second time. When they first approached us about this new conveyor project, we knew that this would be a complex installation, but our designers set about producing a solution that would fit their operation. We knew that if we got it right, we would help them maximise their productivity and their space. Thankfully, it is doing that and much more.”
REP-TEC manufacture fully automatic balers at their headquarters just outside Dungannon, Co. Tyrone. They also supply robotic systems, in partnership with MAX-AI. Their experience in this sector has shown that if companies do not have an effective in-feed conveyor set-up for their automatic baler or robotic system, it can negatively impact the throughput from their equipment. By getting in at the start and designing conveyor solutions for customers, REP-TEC can ensure that the baler or robotic system will work at its optimum level.
Established in 2020, REP-TEC offer a range of data-led automated equipment such as fully automatic twin ram balers and waste robotic systems. The company was founded by Colm Grimes who recognised the need for more automated systems to help recycling companies combat labour shortages and tighter controls. Based in N. Ireland, the REP-TEC team has been ...
