Ships all over the world are loading with know-how from Quickborn

SMB International builds ship loaders in a great variety of forms / Specialty area: Conversions of existing systems

(PresseBox) ( Quickborn, )
Be it conversions of existing loaders or designs for bulk good loading or bagged cargo loading and even combined systems for loading bulk goods and bagged goods, project managers from SMB International successfully realise a great number of projects. The complex systems focus on the fields of fertiliser, sulphur and cement, as well as bulk and bagged goods in general. The north German developer's specialty: a combined ship loader for sacks and bulk goods. It incorporates multiple conveyor belts and both types of loading are carried out separately from one another mechanically.

Systems to overcome adverse conditions

Each order has specific requirements: whether nature-related requirements concerning wind, snow, heat and earthquake danger, or product-related due to autoflammability or work areas with risk of explosion. SMB employees are currently working on a combination loader in Russia which is designed to load cement in both loose and bagged form. The machine must function without a hitch at temperatures as low as -40° Celsius. 'Each new order brings a ne w challenge with it. That is what makes our work so exciting, since we are constantly learning in the process, enabling us to develop inventive individual solutions', explains Andreas Heckel, Managing Director of SMB International GmbH. Individual systems have now been created such as ones with a special turntable for bagged cargo loading, centrifugal belts for loose goods which can distribute the goods up to 10 metres in breadth, or cascade slides with a special arrangement of the cascade elements to enable nearly dust-free loading of bulk goods.

Save money with conversions

In their conversion work, SMB engineers make use of existing steel structures, to which they apply state-of-the-art technology. This is well worth it, especially in consideration of structural requirements as well as current steel prices. This makes a total conversion less expensive to carry out than a complete new construction. SMB can conduct a complete conversion within only six weeks of interrupted loading. In doing so, the German mechanical engineering company performs the entire conversion, from design to project management and drafting all the way to technical implementation and on-site supervision - anywhere in the world.
