To The Ends of The Earth...
October 09, 2018
RAM Conveyors sponsored a friend, Khriston Murphy to go to the ends of the earth to raise awareness for Motor Neurone Disease. A disease with no cure or treatment that 2000 Australians are currently suffering. The expedition to Mount Everest Base Camp raised $186,000 for MND & Me charity. Well done Khriston and your fellow climbers for a safe and very successful trip.
The MND and Me Foundation was established by Scott Sullivan, a husband and father of two children. Scott was diagnosed with MND in 2010 at the age of 38, and sadly died from MND in April 2014.
The MND and Me Foundation is a significant financial contributor towards research into finding a cure for MND. In addition to raising funds to ensure a cure for MND is realised, the Foundation remains committed to improving the lives of those impacted by Motor Neurone Disease.
The MND and Me Foundation aims to reduce the burden of recently diagnosed patients and their families and provide practical assistance to people living with MND, and their Carers, to help them cope with present and future challenges.
As the symptoms of MND increase, the level of care needed to remain at home also increases. Families need to adapt to the constantly changing levels of disabilities. They need physical and emotional support. They need community acceptance.

RAM Conveyors turns idlers pink at Hy-Tec Concrete for breast cancer awareness

RAM Conveyors turn idlers pink to take on breast cancer
The team at RAM Conveyors are turning worksites pink one conveyor idler at a time this October to raise awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer.
The privately-owned conveyor solutions business, that operates out of Rocklea, are supporting Cancer Council Queensland’s Pink Ribbon campaign.
RAM Conveyors Business Development Manager Mark Thomas said their specially made bright pink conveyor idlers had raised funds for cancer awareness, and provided a prompt for conversations on women’s cancers.
“Every conveyor idler that is sold during October is pink and is despatched with a letter explaining that it’s pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink idlers have been sent all over the east coast from Cairns to Canberra.” Mr Thomas explained.
“The response so far has been fantastic; HY-TEC Concrete have recently installed a new conveyor that has pink idlers along its entire length. It’s quite a spectacle”
Mr Thomas encouraged other businesses to join them in making a difference by purchasing a pink conveyor idler.
“It’s a cause that is close to the heart for the team at RAM Conveyors, as many of us know people who have had a personal experience with breast cancer,” he said.
“Not only will you be helping raise much-needed funds, but we are confident the pink conveyor idler will stand-out and help bring much-needed awareness to this important issue.
“We will be making a donation to Cancer Council Queensland for each pink conveyor idler sold, until stock runs out.”
Cancer Council Queensland CEO Ms Chris McMillan said community support made a big difference in the fight against women’s cancers.
“More than 4200 women will be diagnosed with a breast or gynaecological cancer in Queensland this year,” Ms McMillan said.
“Pink Ribbon fundraisers like that organised RAM Conveyors enable us to support those women and give vital hope for a cancer free future.
“All funds raised will be invested in vital cancer research, patient support services and prevention programs for women affected by breast and gynaecological cancers.”
Cancer Council Queensland is an independent, community-based charity, the achievement of which is made possible by the generosity of Queenslanders.

RAM Conveyors delivers project with exceptional customer service
September 14, 2017
RAM Conveyors secured a combined package contract to supply conveyor belt and mechanical componentry for a new greenfield conveyor system designed by a leading EPCM company. The mine site in North Queensland was the delivery point for most of the project items, but the client needed the idler frames fitted as a part of the structure where it was being fabricated in Melbourne.
A 1.6m wide conveyor delivering 1,600 tonnes per hour of ‘product coal’ over ½ a kilometre, at a belt speed of 5.7 metre per second. The conveyor when installed, will have multiple load points with both concave and convex curves.
Four containers of conveyor idlers and frames, manufactured by our partner RKM in China, were shipped to Brisbane. To meet the tight time-frame and to ensure cost savings for the client, the shipment was divided up by the team at RAM Conveyors, at the Port of Brisbane, whilst the wharf truck waited. The delivery was split in 30 minutes. Two trailer loads were sent to the structure fab shop in Melbourne (as photo) and two repacked and sent to the mine site in North Queensland. A total turn-around time of a mere 3 days.
The combination of five weeks manufacture time by our RKM China factory, three weeks on water and three day turn around by our Brisbane facility allowed for the Idlers to be fitted to the structure in the workshop.
The savings achieved for our EPCM client, by getting our products to Melbourne for a workshop fit out provided significant saving compared with the planned onsite fit out.
