To stay ahead in automotive manufacturing, you need agility, precision control of processes and certainty built into your production lines. Our solutions help you to move your automation to the next level.
Our modular, intelligent conveyor systems give you the ability to assemble multiple products on the same line, speeding cycle times while reducing maintenance, downtime and overall costs.
Our solutions safely and efficiently manage many vehicles simultaneously, featuring intelligent management of traffic flow for maximum throughput. Built-in self-diagnostics and troubleshooting mean rapid identification of impending and existing malfunctions, minimizing disruptions to line-side.
Historically, motion control has incorporated chains, belts, gears and walking-beam mechanics. These mechanical solutions had limited flexibility, wasted energy and led to excessive maintenance costs. Our solutions represent the next step in motion control, eliminating the rotary driven chains, belts and gears of the past.
With our intelligent conveyor systems, electrical current is applied only when a vehicle is being commanded to move or hold a position, not across the entire vehicle track, saving energy. This is unlike a belt or chain conveyor which might energize and move a 50-foot conveyor section to transport a single product a few inches, or worse still, run constantly and hold products back with mechanical stops.
Heavy duty, high thrust motor perfect for automotive or truck and bus assembly lines, paint booth applications, and other large product manufacturing operations.
