Pack Conveyors

Pack Conveyors offer full automation options for moving products through each stage of the production process.

The products can be packaged in either their primary container or their secondary distribution packaging and automation minimizes product handling, limiting the risk of damage and handling errors. Pack Conveyors are extensively used in consumer product manufacturing, from bottling plants to frozen food.

Consumption data continuously collected from:

  • Conveyor Drives
  • Process control

RS Industria - Icons_R2_RS_Change


Capture key operating data directly from process control systems:

  • Run-Times
  • Line speed
  • Acceleration rates

RS Industria - Icons_R2_RS_Spanner


Monitor leading indicators of failure:

  • Current & Torque:
    • Drive & Gearbox loading
    • Belt condition
  • Vibration:
    • Lubrication failure
    • Bearing wear
    • Gearbox/drive movement & stability

Indicative Savings.

RS Industria - Icons_R2_RS_Energy


Energy: £ 2.2kW motor, (19,272 kWhr/annum), Saving 10% of one motor @ 0.29p/kW = £558.88 per annum. Assuming a bank of 10 motors in a group = £5,500 annual saving.

Downstream consequence for process line, loss of batch production, or interruption in service delivery—a Bakery might lose £2,000 worth of product or production

RS Industria - Icons_R2_RS_Spanner


  • Average MTTR of 4-6hr, downtime cost @ £1,000/hour = £4,000.
  • Replacement motor unit: £1,000.
  • Total potential loss: £6,000 from one failure event.

Indicative Costs & Payback

300% ROI Payback within three months.

Year 1 cost - £3,300

Annual Monitoring Cost - £1,200*

Hardware costs - £1,100

Commissioning - £1,000

* This represents the pack conveyor's share of the annual monitoring fee. This assumes the conveyor assembly has 10 motors and a single gearbox. 


Required hardware will depend on source of consumption data and variables monitored:
  • Energy meter—if no process control data available
  • Vibration sensors—optional extra


Our specialists configure the system and run end-to-end testing prior to go-live.

Monitoring Cost

Share of Annual service fee, based on monitoring 14 parameters for this asset type.

Actual implementation may use more or fewer parameters than this example, depending on requirements.
