NBE automation is a huge part of our process. NBE's expertise was so effective at integrating automation that even our downstream operation's efficiency has improved." Jamie S., Consumer Goods Industry "From the very start NBE understood our design criteria; whether operator ergonomics, custom surface coatings, or tight space restrictions, NBE responded. NBE equipment is solid. It'll be around long after I retire." Jamie S., Consumer Goods Industry Up to 20,000 lb. Lift Carriage Capacity System-wide process control, communication, sensing, and monitoring are automated to ensure accurate material feed rates and optimal line speeds. Control Multiple Process Functions from One HMI Accountable from concept to completion; NBE 3D modeling, process flow planning, and factory acceptance testing ensure trouble-free start-up and optimal line performance. Process Flow Diagrams, P&IDs, Factory Acceptance Tests NBE automated container dischargers fully integrate with downstream processing, packaging, and material transfer systems to enable accurate material feed, interlocking safety switching, and central systems control. Automated full box indexing and empty box accumulation conveyors reduce operator involvement and optimize system efficiency. Integrated and Automated Equipment and Controls Built to protect material integrity, prevent material contamination, and improve material flow; NBE material introduction hoods are custom-fabricated to exceed the performance specifications and automation capabilities of common gasket-seal or bulk-pour hood designs. Process-specific Material Introduction Hood Variable, and independent control of hood seal pressure, carriage lift-and-lower rate, and carriage rotation speed provide a highly controlled material discharge. Rotolink TM carriage linkage provides a smooth, continuous, 180-degree rotation reducing equipment wear and maintenance costs. 3-Function Valve Stack; Triple-bar Carriage Rotation Linkage Whether general industrial or sanitary applications, NBE equipment fabrication materials, methods, and finishes combine to extend process line life cycles, reduce maintenance burden, and optimize system-wide performance. Thick-wall Structural Tubing; Heavy Gauge Carbon and Stainless Steel Sheet Surfaces & Shapes From construction to custom programming, NBE is a single- source provider of line-specific PLCs and HMIs; easily integrate legacy systems from Ethernet to PROFIBUS and more. UL Listed Panels Designed, Built by NBE Thick-wall structural tubing, heavy gauge carbon steel plate, high-load capacity cam rollers with solid bar track guide, and a high-performance hydraulic power unit ensure consistent downstream material supply; even in harsh environments and demanding duty cycles. 508A or Class I, Div. 1 and 2 Groups A-D, F, and G
