The surface treatment industry is a fast-paced industry where the main companies are planning and working fully according to the lean principle.
Lean orientation means that more and more businesses are looking at their sometimes outdated chain conveyors, which are often space-intensive and where the entire process stops if errors occur on the chain. Just like the automotive and aviation industry, most surface treatment industries have a complex process with many steps, whether it’s metals, plastics or other materials being treated.
The solution must be safe according to the ATEX directive, but also space efficient and be able to be driven back and forth at different speeds. With OCS patented overhead solutions – based on friction instead of space-intensive and inflexible chain or the more expensive EMS Electric Monorail system – all the requirements for safe, quiet and clean motion are achieved.
Of course, we also offer traditional floor conveyors for handling pieceware.
Conveyor line for wet paint and powder coating
New conveyor technology for surface treatment programs! There are several advantages of an OCS transport systems for surface, and measurement treatment when compared to a traditional transport system.
The technology that makes the OCS system revolutionary is its smart management and flexible design. Our technology allows trolleys to go both forward and backwards in the system to maximize efficiency and minimize the utilization of floor space. It is clean, quiet and possible to drive the trolleys at different speeds with soft start and stop.
It is modularly structured and modifiable. All system modules and components are pre-assembled at our workshop and delivered in complete assemblies, so regardless of whether we replace your old system or build a new one, the installation will be completed in as short a time as possible to give a quick start up. A complete OCS system usually results in approximately 30% less space being used than with a traditional system.
Conveyor systems for Shot Blasting process
OCS 500 system for transporting pressed sheet metal parts through the shot blasting process. At workstations after the press line, sheet details are hung on a custom carrier that is linked to the OCS trolley. The trolleys are transported to a buffer, further through sandblasting and then to unloading stations. The control system communicates with the sandblasting plant and ensures that the correct shot blasting process is applied to the various products.
The OCS 500 system contains load stations that provide an automatic buffer of products before the painting station. After the painting station, the motors are transported to a storage area, where the various parts are automatically unloaded with a stacking crane into the storage space. From the storage space, the items are dispatched via the OCS overhead conveyor system to packaging areas in the requested delivery sequence.
