Vayeron is rapidly growing the global distribution of its Smart-Idler® product line. Users located in Australia can now access a reliable and well tested market ready solution for smart rollers powered by Vayeron.
Conveyor rollers represent a significant maintenance challenge for most bulk materials handling conveyor systems as the large quantity of the rollers contained within a conveyor system means that inspection and replacement routines are reliant on a reactive maintenance program. End-user conveyor operators regularly experience significant operational losses and flow-on damage to their conveyor belts due to unmitigated conveyor roller failure.
The RKM brand is held in high regard among Western Australia’s Iron Ore and East Coast coal producers such as Roy Hill and Peabody. Vayeron is excited to be partnering with a trusted brand in these markets for smart conveyor component solutions.
Vayeron Managing Director, Ryan Norris said: “We welcome RKM on-board as our first announced partner under this program. After having worked closely with RKM over the last two years, we are confident that RKM has diligently onboarded our technology and can now effectively deliver a significant cost saving solution to their end-user customers”.
“Our Smart-Idler® system for the elimination of conveyor roller related downtime on bulk materials handling conveyors, is receiving significant industry demand from customers located throughout Australia. It is important to us to be able to deliver a quality solution through our conveyor partners. Any end-users who are looking to create a step change improvement in how they maintain their conveyor systems can confidently obtain their solution from RKM.” Mr. Norris said.
RKM Managing Director, Brett Maiden said “At RKM we see Vayeron technology playing a key role in the way mining companies manage conveyor rollers throughout their business.
There are many ways companies can use the Smart-Idler® technology to understand the performance of their rollers in specific locations and applications, this can then give a better understanding of failure modes and predict roller life allowing for scheduled maintenance change outs. It also helps identify other underlining conveying operational issues. By becoming a Premium Partner with Vayeron it allows us to offer product solutions that are totally visible to all parties as we can track the performance in real time and show how valuable the technology can be to their business.”
