Tote & Parcel Case History
Moonpig.com based in London sells personalised greeting cards. In 2007 the company was responsible for 90 percent of the online greeting card market in the United Kingdom. Due to expansion within their factory they required a high-level parcel conveyor system to run from a mezzanine floor across the top of machines and down to a packing area. This consisted of a 58 meter conveyor run up at 4.6 meters in the air. The conveyor was supported from the building internal wall.
Conveyor speed was 15 m/min using close pitch roller conveyor with 35mm diameter rollers. This suited the large range of large to small parcels.
A control system will shut down the parcel conveyor system to save energy when not in use, sensors detect the product and control the flow through the system. The project included full mechanical and electrical installations, followed by training and handover to the customer.
