Superior Industries, a leading manufacturer of conveyor systems and components, launches its new Core Systems™ Design service. Utilizing the expertise of Superior’s knowledgeable engineering, manufacturing and sales teams, the Core Systems consulting service designs and supplies tailored power transmission components to provide a complete, custom drive package for each unique application. In addition to ensuring optimum efficiency and uptime, the single system provider and tailored approach, eliminates hassles by allowing the customer to work with a single company for both the machine and components. Installation is easy and simple with the entire drive system delivered in one complete, assembled package.
The Core Systems Design approach is a customized conveyor drive replacement service. Ideal for applications where minimal downtime is crucial such as mining, coal and power generation plants, Core Systems Design creates optimum conveyor efficiency and uptime for customers by ensuring drive components are ideally suited for the particular job specifications. The process investigates unique jobsite factors such as type and weight of material, average daily output, conveyor profile and ideal conveyor speed to ensure optimum power requirements are met.
In addition to the thorough consulting portion of the Core Systems Design service, Superior’s team of engineers employs Finite Element Analysis (FEA) with every design. This technology identifies crucial stress points and predicts potential failures, allowing the engineering team to adjust the design accordingly. All Core Systems Design manufacturing team members are certified by the American Welding Society and fully trained in weld inspection and x-ray capabilities.
Fully customizable to each customer, the drive system package can incorporate any number of components, from a few select replacement parts to a complete power transmission operating system. Superior manufacturers its own pulleys and take-ups, with standard pulleys offered in diameters up to 60 inches, face widths up to 120 inches and shafting up to 15 inches. Custom pulleys are available upon request. The company works with top distributors to source additional requested components.
Superior stocks or has quick access to most power transmission components, enabling the company to provide fast turnaround time on every Core Systems Design package. Delivery on standard products exceeds industry standards and expedited service is available in as little as 24 to 48 hours from initial call to final delivery. Additionally, each custom-engineered drive assembly is delivered as a pre-assembled package, eliminating costly labor and hassle involved in onsite assembly while greatly reducing installation time. Assembly drawings and all industry leading brands of power transmission components are available upon request.
To optimize convenience, reliability and peace of mind, the entire system is engineered and built by Superior, and is guaranteed to work with the existing machine. In addition, the Core Systems Design service is backed by the company’s two-year warranty with extended plans available upon request. Furthermore, the shaft on each assembly is protected by a specially developed rust prevention treatment for added performance and longevity.
