Conveyor systems are usually built to last a long time. With consideration for certain factors like the type of product and usage rates, conveyors have the potential to run for years and generate great ROI. However, customers can fall into a tendency to stretch this usage out until their equipment becomes so old and worn out that the ROI diminishes and the conveyor starts costing more money than it’s worth. As most systems are the lifeblood of warehouse operations, relying on an old one can spread such inefficiencies to other departments and equipment.
There are signs to look for when you suspect your system is affecting your overall efficiency and bottom line.
