- Company & Industry News
Magfern Recycling recently purchased a new SPS8 4 bay static picking station from JCC Engcon Group for a new site in Derby.
The company had visited the JCC Engcon stand at Scotplant and had been impressed by the workmanship and quality of the mobile picking stations that were at the exhibition, and the knowledge and assistance that JCC Engcon were able to provide.
After detailed discussions, Magfern Recycling opted for a bespoke picking station that was designed in conjunction with the clients specific requirements and for maximum efficiency and flexibility.
Product is discharged onto the 12m heavy duty incline conveyor with chevron belting and impact section & large feed hopper which is then transferred to the picking station which has 3.5m high support frame and 3.2m wide bays for 40 yard skips. Access to the picking station is via the two access stairways on the side of the incline conveyor which are not only designed for safety but also for any maintenance works required on the incline conveyor. The picking station is covered with insulated cladding & rooflights and also comes with double glazed doors & windows for operator comfort. The 4 bay picking station has three bays for commingled product and a split fourth bay for the internal ferrous overband magnet and also non-ferrous collection. The picking station is fully guarded to BS:7300, CE approved, and has a combination of pull wire and push button emergency stops. The conveyors are powered by heavy duty variable speed electric drive motors.
Magfern Recycling were delighted at the initial discussions with JCC Engcon Group and the ease of discussions their requirements. Each individual item was discussed at length and the appropriate design features incorporated. After the specification & design was agreed, JCC Engcon Group manufactured the picking station system within 4 weeks as per the timescale required by Magfern Recycling.
JCC Engcon manufacture a range of picking stations from the PT6 hooklift mobile picking table to the MPS4 fully mobile picking station to the STPS24 twin line static picking station for 24 operatives, with twin blowers & 4 ferrous overband magnets.
