(PRLEAP.COM) Long recognized as an industry leader for its plug-in modular plastic chain belt conveyors, SmartMove now makes an even smarter move on its own behalf, with the construction of a new, completely solar-powered facility.
The plug-in modular conveyor systems made by SmartMove were not only easy to install and simple to operate, but were already green, thanks to the high-efficiency drives they use. SmartMove conveyors only use 110V / 20 AMPS of electricity — roughly equivalent to the amount of electricity a light bulb uses. Now the manufacturer of those products will be "green" as well.

The Fall River, Massachusetts-based company will move into an entirely solar-powered facility in the new year, making their products greener, still, since waste and energy consumption are reduced in the manufacturing chain, even before the products are shipped to customers.
The SmartMove® Conveyor was created by PHD — Precision Handling Devices, Inc. — the world’s leading manufacturer of paper handling devices for the printing industry. When PHD recognized the need for a safer, more reliable conveyor system, they applied their expertise in paper handling devices, with the resulting SmartMove, a unique conveyor that operates with very little torque, making it much safer than other conveyors.
