Kelston Actuation specialises in bespoke screw jack systems commonly used for the adjustment and modification of mass conveyor lines in industrial production. Our systems, characterized by their precision and reliability, offer a myriad of advantages to a wide array of industrial applications.

Versatile Height and Position Adjustments

One of the most significant benefits of utilising our screw jack systems is their ability to enable precise adjustments in the height and position of a conveyor line and its' associated components. Whether through a single motor switch or a manual hand crank, these adjustments can be made to pinpoint accuracy - an adaptability feature that is highly advantageous in the processing of varied product sizes and shapes on the same conveyor line - ultimately saving time, space, and capital investment.

Modular Design for Future-Proof Operations

The modular nature of our screw jack systems is hugely beneficial for industries looking to future-proof their operations. Our systems allow for the easy extension or reconfiguration of conveyor layouts by simply swapping components, ensuring that the infrastructure can evolve with changing business needs. Whether the requirement is for increased load capacity or extended line length, the solution often lies in adjusting elements within the existing system through the addition of motors, jacks, gearboxes, or shafts etc

Application Across Industries

While your operational focus might initially be in one area of production, a real benefit of our screw jack systems is their adaptability. You can change up the purpose of your conveyor when needed - adjusting the height of belts, fillers, cappers, or labeling machines for fast alignment and functionality. Beyond this, your system can be altered to precisely position nozzles, heads, and other critical machine parts needed within various manufacturing sectors.

Durability and Hygiene

Screw jack systems, especially those crafted from stainless steel, offer the dual benefits of durability and hygiene. They are designed to withstand harsh industrial environments, including regular washdowns, while preventing the ingress of dirt and harmful substances into the internal mechanisms. This makes them ideal for industries where cleanliness and longevity of equipment are paramount e.g. food and beverage production.

Enhanced Operational Capabilities

The operational benefits of incorporating screw jack systems into industrial conveyor lines include:

Height Adjustment: Facilitates the accommodation of different product sizes, ensuring optimal positioning of machinery like filling nozzles, capping machines etc.

Batch Processing: Enables the lifting and lowering of large product batches into processing units, optimizing efficiency.

Conveyor Adjustments: Allows for the fine-tuning of conveyor angles and heights, ensuring smooth product transitions and reducing the risk of disruptions.

Press Operation and Sealing: Delivers the necessary force for machinery that seals products, ensuring integrity and safety.

Load Balancing and Stabilization: Offers solutions for managing heavy equipment or product loads, enhancing safety and preventing damage.

Maintenance Support: Simplifies maintenance and cleaning processes by securely lifting and holding machinery, allowing safe access for technicians.
