Crossover Conveyor

Robotunits Australia has released a crossover conveyor. It is a very costeffective solution to transport goods around a 90-degree corner.  Generally, modular or slat-chain conveyors have to be used in these situations but they are quite expensive in comparison. Crossover Conveyors can be built to a maximum of 200mm belt width. Lightweight products, which don’t have to be placed in a particular orientation, are best suited for the crossover conveyor.  The unit is based on standard Robotunits C4N Conveyors and can therefore be delivered within one working week from time of order. Of course each crossover conveyor is designed to exact customer specifications.

Angle Adjustable Belt Conveyor

Robotunits has recently delivered a conveyor where the angle of incline had to be adjustable. The customer needed the angle to be changeable from 20 degrees to 40 degrees. Speed of delivery was also very crucial for the customer. By combining our standard C8N Belt Conveyor with our Modular Automation System as well as a third party hydraulic adjustement system we managed to deliver a fully customised solution in less than two weeks from time of order.


Type: C8N End Drive Option

Length: 4 meters

Width: 700mm

Belt: Adhesive PVC Belt

Team Robotunits – Gravity 12hour Mountain Bike Enduro Race

We here at Robotunits take our work extremely seriously. Everything we do is based on our core values.

–       Fast & Direct

–       Solution and Goal Orientated

–       Honest & Open

–       Fun & Friendly

All these values are very important to us here at Robotunits. We believe these are the foundation to our customers as well as our own success. Lately we have been expanding some of those values outside of our normal working hours. We decided to put together a team to ride in the Gravity 12hour Mountain bike Challenge. The idea was to open it to our employees as well as suppliers and customers. It was all a bit short notice but a team of four was quickly found with Adam Elford, Paul Brauer, Grant Tartaro and myself up for the challenge. We even managed to get in a few training rides in the weeks leading up to the event. So on Friday the 1st of February, building of conveyors and other equipment here in our factory was scaled down and race preparation was all the rage. We arrived in Bright mid afternoon, set up our site and went straight for a training ride to check out the course. It all looked easy enough and we where confident for the race. Saturday morning it was all game on. Adam Elford was our first rider and all though he got caught up in the middle of the field after a hilarious “Le’mans” start managed to crank out one of the fastest laps of the day. I followed after Adam and managed a respectable time also. So did Paul and Grant. After that it was all getting a bit harder. First Adam had a flat about 500meters before the finish line and had to run to hand over to me. I quickly made up for some lost time only to loose front wheel grip about half way around the course. I rode the bike back in agony and still managed to limp back in a respectable time. Unfortunately my race day was over. So Adam, Paul and Grant stepped up and rode extra laps to make up for my misfortune.


In the end Adam did 5 laps, Paul and Grant did 3 each and I did only 2. With all that we came home 12th out of 18 Teams of Four. We thought that was mighty respectable for our first race entry especially seeing that there have been professional Team entries from Bicycle Superstore and Torque.  All in all, we accomplished our mission to have a lot of fun. My hand is almost back to normal and my rip will be fine again soon. We are already thinking of entering some other races and we will definatly be going back to compete again in the 2014 Gravity 12hour Mountain Bike Enduro Race. If you would like to join us please let us know. The more we are the more fun we’ll have.


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

2012 has been a busy year again here at Robotunits Australia. All though the manufacturing industry is shrinking and shrinking each year we have actually managed to hit all our goals for this year. That is only possible because we have such a loyal customer base. We would like to sincerely thank You, our valued Customers for your support and trust during the last year. We hope we can help you again next year and contribute to your success in 2013.

Robotunits Australia will be closed over the holiday period from Friday 21st of December to Monday the 7th of January.

Robotunits Conveyors In Checkweigher Applications

We have been working with the leading checkweigher suppliers in Australia on many projects and supplied our conveyors as part of the overall solutions.

Checkweighers are automatic weighing devices to check the weight of goods on a manufacturing or sorting line. They are used in a wide range of industries like Pharmaceutical, Logistics, Freight & Distribution, Confectionery, Fresh Food, Pet Food and general Manufacturing. At their core, checkweighers use a conveyor, which is mounted on weighing cells. Many of these weighing devices need to be built to exact specification so they meet the exact customer criteria. Robotunits conveyors are often used by the leading Australian checkweigher manufacturers.


We supply standard conveyors but also customised solutions with features like tracking strips or balanced rollers to guarantee weighing accuracy. Our conveyors are also used as separating devices to make sure products are arriving individually at the weighing station. In some cases we also supply conveyors to reject goods, which are under or over weight specifications.

Find more information on Robotunits belt conveyors here or if you need further information regarding checkweighers please contact us and we put you in contact with the leading companies in this field.
