Heightened Volume Requirements
Moving parts from one process to another becomes challenging as the assembly grows. Palletized conveyors are a great solution for heightened volume requirements. Orbitform is a leading expert in palletized conveyors and has created many options for material handling.
Too Large for Operator Handling
Automotive component production requirements often are too large for operator handling without added machinery. Orbitform was challenged with finding a conveyance solution for a 100mm-140mm diameter component system with a high production volume. Upon review of the required cycle time, process and component tracking, we were able to design a unique, one-of-a-kind system to fit all the client’s needs.
Ideal Way to Move Parts
Due to the size and shape of the part, a palletized conveyor was ideal to move the parts. A palettized conveyor is a conveyance system in which a part is placed directly on a part specific fixture, called a pallet, which stays directly on the conveyor system. This pallet then moves the part via the conveyor system, holding it securely.
A Self-Contained System
In addition to designing a completely self-contained system, Orbitform was able to include smart traffic control, gauging station and part tracking. The new system was designed with a raw part sorting system and robotic load and unload.
Move and Track Parts Effortlessly
Upon integrating the system into this new line, the client received a completely self-contained solution to meet their every need. This new system moves and tracks parts effortlessly through the entire manufacturing process.
