They are straight, winding, long, short and are found in a variety of industries. One thing they all have in common is that they help to shift things from A to B. We are talking of course about conveyor belts. Another thing they have in common is Axelent, the company that supplies machine guards and smart cable routing products.
You will find conveyors everywhere – in airports, industries, food processing plants and mines. Whether it be bags and parcels heading to a new destination, part of a production line or goods on their way to a customer somewhere in the world, conveyor belts do the job.
National safety directives and norms coupled with an insatiable desire to find smart machine safety solutions is what has made Axelent a market leader.
“Each project and workplace is unique. For us at Axelent it is a matter of course to remove the obstacles and problems that may arise. Quite often the customer manages with our wide range of standard products, but we are naturally flexible and will come up with customised solutions for projects that demand them,” says Daniel Filipsson, Product Manager for X-Tray at Axelent.
“For the food processing industry, Axelent also supplies cable trays with the focus on hygienic design. Cable trays and their accessories are designed to make cleaning easier, thus reducing dirt and bacteria. An important part of improving safety for producer and consumer alike.”
Axelent offers smart solutions for use in the conveyor belt segment. Mesh guards, cable trays and smart brackets. The common denominator is that the company's products quickly create a safe environment. The stringent demands on safety, speed and smart solutions has made the company a market leader. Daniel Filipsson sums it up as follows:
“Always being one step ahead is one of Axelent’s strong points. With our machine guards we prevent contact between people and moving parts, and with our cable trays we create neat and effective cable routing that also gives a more hygienic and cleaner environment.
Globalisation and more international operations is the order of the day. Swedish-owned Axelent will soon be represented everywhere, from its base in the deep forests of Hillerstorp in Sweden the company has expanded all the way to Australia.
Ten years ago a lifechanging event took place at Axelent – X-Guard saw the light of day! Today, X-Guard stretches this far from Hillerstorp in Småland, Sweden.
