Project Legendre Conveyors – Brouwerij Cornelissen

A fine example of the circular economy.

 

Legendre Conveyors have been integrating transport systems and line management in production facilities for more than 70 years. “A highly demanding task, calling for ultimate precision, something you can only achieve with people with many years of experience. Our projects would be inconceivable without them,” says Olivier Legendre.

 

The story of the customer, Brouwerij Cornelissen, extends over several generations. Thinking about the brewery business probably conjures up images of an ageing building and lots of manual work. The reality is rather different. The customer is fully aware of the challenges they face, and they are determined to build their Factory of the Future in collaboration with Legendre Conveyors.

 

Brouwerij Cornelissen are struggling with capacity issues and various elements of their production process were ripe for replacement. Expansion and renewal were therefore required if profitability was to be improved. “You don’t simply throw away what you have worked with and relied on for years. It isn’t always necessary,” says Olivier.

 

Didier Droesbeke (Line Designer at Legendre Conveyors): “The greatest challenges in this project came from the need to build and upgrade the installation using both new and old equipment, in a very restricted space. Definitely custom work.”

 

Legendre Conveyors found a sustainable solution, retaining existing equipment as far as possible, renovating it and linking it with new conveyor systems and the associated PLCs and new frequency motors and software. The result is a perfect example of the circular economy concept and demonstrates how a business can limit their environmental footprint even while undertaking substantial expansion and renewal. A sustainable but also financially attractive solution for the customer: major investments were avoided, the massive upgrade increased capacity, the environmental impact was negligible and the customer is ready for further growth.

 

The strength of this project results from expertise and loads of experience. Expertise in development work, in electrical cabling, in the mechanics and the control of our conveyor belts, in the re-use of materials but also in the high level of precision required in relocating the machines. It was the integrated approach, with excellent coordination between all those involved, that made this project such a success.”

The best possible solution for your
production line

Together with the customer, we determine which machines will produce the most efficient production line. Legendre ensures the perfect integration of machines and conveyor systems using an open and accessible software environment.

Get the most out of your lines

We design packaging lines with the aim to optimise line layout, accumulation zones and operator accessibility. Care for adequate line management reduces start/stop situations, resulting in higher line efficiency and maximum OEE.

Focus on your core business with
peace of mind

Legendre makes sure that the production lines operate perfectly, enabling our customers to focus on their core business. We’re not satisfied until the customer is satisfied.

Optimal line efficiency is only a click away

Full conveying by Legendre Conveyors

On the right you can see the video of a complete PET line installation with Legendre Conveyors supply for all primary (bottles) and secondary (packs) packaging. The integration of communication between machines and conveyors and the management of machine speeds according to the line states is entirely carried out by Legendre Conveyors. We would like to thank Emmetti spa for making the images available.

Engineering

What’s your challenge? This is where it all begins. Together with you, we examine all the options and possibilities. We then determine the best production flow layout based on your specific products and available space.

Efficiency increases

We ensure high line efficiency, in which all conveyors, buffers and machines are perfectly coordinated – whether the line is new or established.

Integration

We ensure high line efficiency, in which all conveyors, buffers and machines are perfectly coordinated – whether the line is new or established.

Product range

Conveyor belts, accumulation systems, inliners, switches and more. Our experience and expertise are integrated into our mechanical designs to guarantee maximum reliability and a long service life.

Installation and start-up

Our in-house technicians install your production line at your location or, alternatively, we assist your teams with the installation process. Our in-house programmers then start up your new line. We take a flexible approach to ensure that the project is completed on time.

Support

Experiencing problems with your line? We can solve them on site or online and provide replacement parts from our own workshop or supplier network. And if your line is in need of repair or maintenance, we’re here to help.
