Aviation: Overhead- and floor conveyors

A highly technological and innovative industry

The aviation industry is highly technological and innovative with extremely detailed specified requirements in the manufacture of the aircraft and its components.

Initial components are numerous and they have a high degree of complexity. Furthermore, great flexibility is needed to quickly switch production to new models. Transport systems with airframe conveyors must be space efficient, able to integrate with mounting machines and communicate with machines such as robots, screwdrivers and superior process systems.

Like other modern industries, the conveyor solutions should also be clean, quiet and ergonomic to meet both human and technical needs and requirements. With the OCS patented overhead conveyors – built on friction instead of space-intensive and inflexible chain or the more expensive EMS Electric Monorail system – all the requirements are achieved to be lean, clean & green.

Of course, we also offer traditional floor conveyors for handling pieceware.

Assembly line for aircraft pylon

The conveyor system transports the pylons weighing up to 1200 kg and between 4 and 6 meters long, automatically at a height of 5.5 meters. The pylons are lowered and discharged onto the respective assembly station, after which the product carrier rises to retrieve a new pylon. The four assembly lines together have a total of 42 product fixtures. OCS has been responsible from design and manufacturing to the implementation of ready-made assembly lines.
