The interactive design process features:

  • bin and hopper design considerations
  • finite element analysis of major components
  • 3D design models, to allow client interface
  • AS 9001 2002 accredited design control process
  • design employing both the Australian materials handling industry standard TUNRA and RCR’s extensive design modelling expertise
  • heavy duty mechanical design, using the leading components available, with designs for all Australian and International standards
  • comprehensive design, support and interaction with the client; and
  • fully developed bin, hopper and stockpile design support for clients.
Designs are currently available for belt feeders up to 15,000 tonnes per hour, at 3 metres wide and 30 metres long.

Upon construction, the units are equipped with advanced maintenance and operational design aspects, including retractable idlers and a unique hydraulic tensioning system.

Feeders feature maintenance and operational benefits that include retractable and shuttle motion.
