This Lite Series Mini-Mover conveyor was attached to a woodworking machine as a return conveyor. Fitting to the customer’s ready-made stand was simplified by the pre-drilled and pre-tapped holes in the Lite Series frame, making conveyor height and angle easy to adjust. The customer noticed and immediate saving in parts-handling labor, with simple operation reducing training needs for its users.
This is a trade show demo of a “mobile conveyor parts counting/verification system” designed and fabricated by SPEDE Technologies, which includes a Mini-Mover Lite Series conveyor as well as other important components. This system was displayed at the recent automotive tradeshow in Michigan.
The SPEDE system can take human-error out of the counting and verification process at packaging and labeling time by using combinations of technologies — such as vision sensors, PLC controls, diverters, weigh scales, etc. The system is designed to precisely count parts, using a vision sensor, as the parts are conveyed underneath the sensor. The counted parts can be dropped or diverted into a container or hand-packed into special dunnage, if necessary. All these capabilities are essential to automotive OEMs to meet quality specifications such as Honda’s MPRs (Minimum Process Requirements).
Additional benefits of the SPEDE system is that the conveyor can be of various widths and lengths to accommodate different part sizes. It’s easily be mounted on a mobile cart that can be moved from line to line, as needed to ensure packaging accuracy on that line.

This parts transport, sorting and inspection station includes four integrated Mini-Mover Lite Series Conveyors. Use of the durable and economical Lite conveyors kept the engineers’ costs lower while producing a reliable high quality result.
When our customer (or customer’s client) has a huge product or concept to demonstrate at a trade show, our Mini-Mover conveyors come in very handy when building functional, miniaturized displays. This video, taken at a recent agricultural expo, uses an LP Series conveyor to help show how a soil-treatment delivery system is used.
We wish you and your families a wonderful holiday season. We are grateful to you — our loyal customers, partners, suppliers and friends — for another record-breaking year and and look forward to our all sharing a prosperous New Year in 2018.
