Calculating Conveyor Cost Savings

Mon, 03/23/2009 - 8:35am
Pneumatic conveying system manufacturer Precision AirConvey recently made a new return-on-investment (ROI) calculator available to prove, as well as automatically reveal, the cost savings and overall financial returns to be realized by installing its automated trim-handling and reprocessing systems. In order to compare your facility's current operating conditions to the prospective streamlined conditions following trim system installation, the ROI calculator considers dozens of cost input parameters, including:
  • The impact of slitter or extruder downtime.
  • Raw material and reclaim waste.
  • Waste hauling and disposal.
  • Other variables common to manual handling, in regard to labor, time, productivity and product quality.
According to the company, the resulting tangible figures permit an educated comparison of several automated technologies vs. manual trim collection and disposal. To determine the ROI realized by installing an automated trim and waste handling or reprocessing system, the company offers a preliminary online form that may be completed at If you require additional details or form completion assistance to accurately calculate anticipated returns, a Precision AirConvey sales engineer is available to personally call by phone and walk you through the process.
