3D CAD Brings Concepts to Life

Providing 3D drawings at the sales stage means customers can easily visualise the proposed system. Complex layouts can be viewed from different angels and customer product can be shown in place. Building walls, floors and mezzanine floors can be added into the drawing.

This brings to life the proposed solution and can also help the customer explain proposed changed to staff. 3D CAD is also a valuable tool through from development to the final build. Monk Conveyor utilise standard products were possible, but we also have the capability to design bespoke automation solutions.

Automotive Product Feeding


Case History

Dawson Shanahan in Welshpool are specialists in precision cold forming and machining. They approached Monk Conveyors for a conveyor line to transport machined car parts from a CNA machine to a Wash Machine. Monk helped design the base of a small pallet 280 x 80mm to hold the parts. Pneumatic gates were installed to allow parts to stop in front of operator stations. Due to coolant being present on the parts, a full drip tray with drain pipes was fitted to the conveyor line.

March 2019 Newsletter - MODU Flexible Chain Conveyor Systems

MONK Conveyors has used MODU System plastic chain conveyors for more than 12 years carrying out numerous customer installations.  MODU offer a high quality, robust and cost effective flexible conveyor system.  It is used extensively in the Food and Packaging, Medical and Pharmaceutical, Automotive, Electronics and Optical industries.  MONK Conveyors adds pneumatic and electrical control systems to provide turn-key solutions.

Plastic Slat Conveyor

MODU Aluminium and Stainless Steel Conveyors are based on a close fitting flexible chain. Products can travel along straights, into curves or even vertically. The system is quickly assembled from standard modules to accommodate almost any layout. Compact horizontal and vertical bends allow our systems to use minimum floor space, while ensuring operators have clear access to machinery.

Heavy Duty Belt Conveyors

MONK Belt Systems provide transport links through production, warehouse, order picking and despatch. Heavy duty drives are reversible so can take product up or down between floors; or run horizontally along packing benches.  Medium duty end drives offer a compact alternative.  Tough PVC grip top or smooth belt material can be selected and operation is quiet and smooth.  A modular design means reduced installation time and low maintenance.

Belt Conveyor System

MONK Conveyors will design and build electrical control for the system.  Control panels with options for variable speed, sensors, beacons, sounders, counters, HMI touch screen displays and rope pull emergency cords can be built in to provide a full solution.

We Also Supply Roller Conveyors and Lifters Monk Conveyors supply and install full working systems which are designed to suit your specific needs.  We install full pneumatic and electrical control with operator touch screens if required.  Our control systems range from simple stop starts up to barcode capable controls, capable of communicating with your Warehouse Management System (WMS).

February 2019 Newsletter - Pallet Handling Roller Conveyor Systems

MONK Conveyors pallet systems provide the in-plant transport links between production, warehouse, order picking and dispatch. All too often pallets are stored in racks, stacked up and then transported by forklift truck. This can create shortfalls, damage to pallets and products.
