In June 2004 Babush Material Handling Systems, Inc. conducted a customer perception and satisfaction survey. The reason: Babush wants to continue to improve and help exceed the needs of its customer base. The results are in and we will share some of the responses with you. We look to forging an even more committed relationship with all our customers.

In our survey 76.2% of you have told us that you prefer to receive information via E-mail versus other media types. Because of this Babush has introduced our first of many Babush E-newsletters. Each newsletter will feature a case study, a material handling tip and other useful information that you need. You asked for it and we are providing it!

Quick Tip of the Month

Each month we will provide a quick tip on various subjects in the material handling industry. Watch this area for helpful ideas and shortcuts in maintenance and operation of your material handling equipment.

  1. When ordering Skatewheel Conveyors it is important to determine the number of wheels per foot on the conveyor. There should always be a minimum of 10 wheels under a box.
  2. For Gravity Roller Conveyors the rollers are put in frames as close together or as far apart as necessary, but there should always be three (3) rollers under the box. With less than three rollers the box tumbles, best-3 rollers under box at all times. This determines the roller centers to order.
  3. An underside take-up or center drive and take-up are often used on Belt Conveyors, when the overall length of the conveyor cannot be changed or the overall length is 60 ft long (or more).
