Twenty years ago when the Company was founded, pipe work and bespoke alterations for installations was typically a contracted out expense for all suppliers of this type of machinery. Summit's management team could see that this was expensive for the customer and so they have developed their own metal fabrication operation. This provides a cost saving to the customer and more control over projects for the Summit's technical engineers.
Now all pipe systems; including bends, are fabricated in-house and alterations to equipment and special adaptations, such as flexible silo's and big bag discharge stands are also manufactured on Summit's premises.
Summit Systems portfolio of equipment ranges from individual units and systems for the plastics industry, including blending and dosing equipment, loaders, conveying equipment, magnetic platens for the injection moulding market, pick and place robotics, dehumidifying dryers, rotor wheel dryers and Low Pressure Dryers, through to material handling systems for many other applications. Increasingly popular is their range of ATEX approved vacuum conveying equipment and the recycling units and systems proved by a dedicated division of the company.
Flexible silos have been very popular with customers. Installed inside and designed especially for the space you have available, even if it is a small footprint but can go higher. These flexible silos are made from breathable material, are easy to install and their lightweight construction means that transport costs are kept low. They can be connected to existing pipe work or bespoke options are available.
