Several challenges waited to be resolved at the outset:
Two conveyers used together to transport material from the shop floor directly to the loading vehicle. The first conveyer was out under the ground transporting scrap directly from the production floor dumps it on the second, which is put in place at a slanted height at an angle of 45o, transports in right into the loading tray of the waiting vehicle.
