Top 3 Upgrades to Improve Your Material Handling and Conveying Systems

conveying material handling hytrolWhile material handling and conveying systems are made to last for years, upgrades may be required at some point or another to achieve a consistent level of efficiency and effectiveness. Upgrades can be new and exciting, providing new features and better productivity. They are also essential to remaining relevant in an ever-changing world. 

Once completed, all upgrades can make significant improvements to your line, efficiency, and more importantly, your bottom line. Here are the top three material handling and conveying system upgrades we recommend to our clients to bring them success moving forward.

1. Upgrading the Hytrol – EZLogic® Gen 2

Unfortunately, the Hytrol Gen 2 EZLogic® zero pressure accumulation system has been discontinued and is no longer being supported. This is hitting tons of manufacturers hard, as they are forced to make sudden upgrades to their systems that need accumulation or buffing. 

IBT’s team of specialists has been working with engineers across the Midwest helping them solve this major issue. Our team can help you strategize your upgrades to ensure that they are the most efficient and cost-effective as possible. We can even help you decide how to make upgrades in phases. 

Upgrading your Hytrol Gen 2 EZLogic is a  demanding and stressful upgrade, but our team can help you get “up to speed” on the new EZLogic® Gen 3 or Gen 4 controls and monitoring. If you’re running into issues with EZLogic® Gen 2 and the lack of support, don’t stress—just call IBT! We’ll make a plan that fits your situation.

2. Upgrading Through Adversity

Another high-priority upgrade many of you are facing right now is to keep up with the demands of our changing society.

During the height of COVID-19, many manufacturers dealt with either staff shortages or had to reduce queuing stations to meet social distancing requirements.

No matter what year it is, you have to keep up with the changing demands of society and circumstance. In this uncertain time, IBT can help provide some ease of mind and stability with their conveying and material handling system upgrade consultation services. With a professional consultation, you’ll understand the changes you need, the options you have, and the next steps you need to take.

We can help with adjusting your workflow to meet new demands. From new workstations to table scales, and more, IBT is here to help guide you through the entire process.

We will help you with material handling and conveyor system upgrades by designing and installing new integrated automation like palletizing robots, order pickers, cobots, and more. We will even follow up with maintenance services to ensure your new equipment runs smoothly.

IBT’s team of specialists will put your mind at ease, help you meet the demands you’re facing, and help make your system as efficient as possible.

With priorities addressed, you can now breathe a sigh of relief. The next upgrade might not be an immediate demand, but it will increase safety, reduce noise, and increase the speed of your line. 

3. ModSort® Divert & Transfer Upgrade
ModSort Regal Beloit

Upgrading to the ModSort® system by Regal PTS might not be on your radar—but it should be. We recommend this advanced conveyor upgrade to our customers because of the increased speed and safety it delivers.

Parts from other competitors have been known to be loud, clunky, and not always the safest. Regal PTS’ ModSort Divert and Transfer module helps easily divert, transfer, and sort multiple package types. This system is quiet, smooth, and less dangerous for people nearby.

The ModSort modules can be used with existing or new conveyor systems, and installation is easy with its standard 24 V connection. This makes replacing older transfer pieces quick and easy.
