Statewide 2017

Case Study

For their job at the Knoxfield Unitrans warehouse installing a system to manufacture mattresses, Statewide Bearings employed the expertise of Custom Automation Australia to design, build, and install and commission a system of conveyors to transport mattresses of various weights and sizes between sewing stations and storage.

The project had a tight deadline, with a number of different disciplines and contractors required, however, with careful planning the Custom Automation team was able to install the entire system within the required time frame.

The system itself, consisting of 87 three metre long sections of chain driven roller conveyor out fitted with a series of stops, pushers, and belt transfers, all controlled by an extensive network of pneumatics and photo-electric sensors enabling the proper flow of product, and designed such that the installation can be easily adapted to meet the changing needs of the client.

As a result of the successes of Custom Automation’s team of engineers and fabricators, Statewide Bearings has maintained a friendly relationship with Custom Automation, and has since discussed the possibility of partnering on additional work.
