The recent years have seen increased growth in the number of large warehouses and distribution centers throughout the country. Millions of products are zipping across miles of conveyors on a daily basis. Just one conveyor line going down can cause a cascading effect in the entire system, which makes reliability a key factor when choosing a gear motor to drive your line.
Problem: A leading manufacturer of warehouse conveyor systems received notice that one of their main motor suppliers would no longer be able to fill orders. This directly impacted gear motor usage across three of their fastest selling conveyor lines.
Solution: Bison Gear & Engineering was contacted and asked to design a unit matching the specs of the current model, while meeting or exceeding all quality and reliability standards. The engineering team at Bison Gear was able to make modifications to a standard product and deliver a prototype for testing within 48 hours.
Result: Bison was able to pull from a large catalog of products and provide custom engineering expertise to deliver a complete order to the customer on-time.
