Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/26/2015 -- When a manufacturer invests in a material handling solution, they are investing in the future of your business. Boyce Bonham, Hytrol's Director of Integrator Services, discussed in the company blog, balancing the long-term goals with the short-term costs of investing in a material handling solution. Bonham explained, "It is important to consider all of the options available to you to get the most use and greatest value for your solution. Your long-term goals should be a driving force for your decisions, as should the total cost of your solution over time."
Bonham noted that determining the solution a manufacturer may need today, may not be ideal for changing business needs. Higher initial costs may be compensated for by lower costs in energy and maintenance over time. When company leaders plan for these long-term costs, they can decrease the total cost of ownership.
"A variable speed conveyor lets you ramp up the speed during peak seasons. Even better, it will run at lower speeds during non-peak periods, which saves on energy and component wear. If your business has large discrepancies in needed throughput for the year, or if you may need a change in throughput in the future, you will want to look into a variable speed conveyor," shared Bonham.
