Mi-CON ‘flat pack’ modular conveyor system eliminates equipment redundancy

Called Mi-CON (Modular Incline Conveyor System), it is the first hygienically designed full wash down system to offer multiple standardised components, providing maximum flexibility and allowing customers to select what will best suit their specific product and production needs.

Leading materials handling manufacturer Enmin has recently launched a revolutionary new modular conveyor system.

Called Mi-CON (Modular Incline Conveyor System), it is the first hygienically designed full wash down system to offer multiple standardised components, providing maximum flexibility and allowing customers to select what will best suit their specific product and production needs.

For more than 40 years, Enmin has built custom material handling solutions for a myriad of products, applications and environments. 

“We recognised the industry demand for flexible, reliable, cost effective equipment and that’s what led us to designing our Mi-CON modular conveyor system,” Enmin General Manager, Anthony Gallaher said.

“The key benefit of this modular system is that it eliminates equipment redundancy and expands with the customer’s business. It can be added to, extended and modified in the years ahead as a company’s production needs evolve,” he added.

The flexible modular design coupled with a range of standard parts and components, ensures suitability for multiple applications.

Mi-CON is the only conveyor system on the market that can be delivered flat packed in a box, allowing fast and cost-effective delivery and simple installation by the customer’s maintenance team.

It can also be delivered to the customer partially complete or fully complete for quicker installation and commissioning.

Fully Australian made, the Mi-CON system is constructed of 304 stainless steel and all components and running gear used is FDA approved and suitable for a full wash-down environment.

A range of accessories is available that allows the customer to semi-customise the conveyor to suit the type of product they are handling or the site’s operational requirements. All items have been hygienically designed to meet the toughest of OH&S standards whilst maintaining flexibility and quality.

The modular intermediate section can be used to extend the available in-feed and out-feed sections and also increase the overall discharge height of the conveyor.

With two standard belt widths of 500 and 700mm and incline angle options of 60 and 75 degrees, the mi-con will suit a wide variety of applications and space constraints.

The system can utilise either a PU flat, scooped cleated wave wall, or a plastic modular design, depending on the application.

Other Enmin conveyor options include accumulation, takeaway, bag conditioning / flattening delivery conveyors and packing tables – all designed to fit perfectly with the Mi-CON system.

“We are confident our new Mi-CON system will revolutionise product conveying equipment and provide years of economical, trouble free operation for a multitude of product applications. Like all Enmin products, advanced design, outstanding build quality and reliability is a given,” said Mr Gallaher.

“We believe that the market potential for the product is huge as it can be utilised by any food and ingredient manufacturing facility,” Mr Gallaher summed up.

Based in Melbourne, Enmin is an Australian market leader in the areas of standard and non-standard materials handling systems and applications.

They have extensive experience and expertise in vibratory equipment and their list of customers includes most leading food industry manufacturers.
