GLENWOOD, Minn., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Among all types of conveyors, extendable conveyors present one of the greatest challenges for dependable performance. WASP's new 2555 Extendable Conveyor system has a unique set of heavy-duty parts and simplified design that provides greater dependability and a longer lifespan while reducing maintenance and total lifelong costs.

In the past, extendable conveyors were expected to last 12-14 years. The 2555 Extendable Conveyor system is expected to last 15-20 years or more. The combination of lower total lifetime operating costs spread out over a longer lifespan delivers a superior ROI.

The 2555 was designed in close cooperation with the world's leading logistics and package delivery corporations. WASP engineers developed the 2555 using a four-faceted approach to success. The four-faceted approach not only enables lower total lifetime costs, but also faster installations. The four facets involve:

  1. Listening to the customer, WASP adjusts product design to meet each customer's specific needs and reduces total lifetime cost
  2. Using exceptional flexibility in design and manufacturing, WASP produces customized conveyors with speed and efficiency
  3. Operating at four domestic facilities, WASP avoids the delays, inflexibility, and reduction of control that are inescapable if production is outsourced
  4. Taking extra steps in design, WASP simplifies maintenance and streamlines integration, which avoids a major source of longer lead times and extended deadlines.

Critical aspects of the 2555 Extendable Conveyor system design that provide dependable performance and longevity include:

Heavy-duty cam followers and bearings that deliver durability at the weakest point of all extendable conveyor systems -- full extension.

Heavy-duty drive systems, including stronger chains and oversized sprocket shafts, that minimize repairs and downtime.

Protected cable runs that avoid damage to the wires that power and control the conveyor as it moves.

Superior steel structures that exceed the parcel industry's upper limits for package volumes and weights, and extends the conveyor's life span into the 15-20-year-plus range.

Simplified design that minimizes the number of potential points of trouble, provides easy access to areas needing maintenance, and streamlines integration.
