Conveyor maker offers video salute to engineers

Milwaukee company produces video highlighting employees' dedication to their craft.

By DC Velocity Staff

Think a conveyor is just a dull piece of industrial equipment? One material handling equipment maker begs to differ. And it has created a video that just might convince you that designing a conveyor is actually a feat of engineering performed by professionals whose dedication to craft could bring a tear to your eye.

To commemorate the 13th anniversary of its founding, Milwaukee, Wis.-based Hilmot LLC produced the three-minute video to demonstrate its employees' passion for designing and building conveyor systems.

The short film traces the development of a budding engineer from infancy to adulthood. He's first shown as a baby, gleefully chewing on Lego bricks as he crawls around a carpeted living room. Over the years, he translates that love of building into progressively more complex products, constructing marble runs, cinderblock walls, and finally complex conveyors. As the scenes unfold, the narrator observes, "An innovative idea is half the battle; execution is the wind in the sail."
