Engineering & Manufacturing Specifications

Engineering Specs

The Fluent RC-LD Series of conveyors are engineered with the latest versions of the Solidworks family of engineering tools (CAD, Simulation). The Solidworks tools are paired with a very experienced engineering team that has provided some of the industry’s most robust conveyor solutions. The RC-LD Series are engineered closely with the production team to ensure the processes from engineering to manufacturing meets tight tolerances, QA validation and project deadlines.

Manufacturing Specs

The Fluent RC-LD Series of conveyors have been tested, validated and approved to meet the quality tolerances our engineering team requires. Our production team has over 100 years of combined experience paired with a facility of over 85,000 square feet. The core facility has a paint booth, 40,000 square feet of dedicated assembly, 6 – welding stations, CNC fabrication equipment, 10 – overhead cranes and more.

Preventative Maintenance

The Fluent RC-LD Series of conveyors, like all roller chain belt conveyors, requires up-front adjustments and maintenance to ensure the longevity of the conveyor and conveyor components.

Core adjustments and maintenance:

-Belt Tension (come pre-tensioned on most)

-Oiler maintenance & oil supply (always keep oil in the reservoir)

-Visual Inspections

-General removal of debris

-Inspect safety guarding

-Grease bearings

-Change gear case oil

-Inspect cleats & belts (rollers, chain) for normal wear.
