Avoiding cross contamination on conveyors

In the twelfth century, workers in the Venetian Arsenal produced naval vessels by moving them down a canal, affixing a new part at each stop. This early version of the production line allowed shipbuilders to produce a ship a day. Since then, the modern assembly line has become much more complex, with stricter regulations, particularly concerning contamination in the food processing industry. Here, Rob Rogers, technical director at materials handling specialist Gough Engineering, looks at how factory managers can avoid products being contaminated as they move through the assembly line.
