Axle Build Facility
In the Spring of 2016 Pro Handling Solutions were contracted to design and manufacture a Axle Build conveyor for a Tier One Automotive client. The conveyor was designed with a two tier configuration, the top tier consisted of Roller Flight Accumulating Chain conveyor with Pneumatic Stops and mechanical anti run backs to allow production processes to be carried out on the product. The Accumulating chain allows product to progress in other stations while a number of other stations are processing. The product is removed from its platen at the end of the conveyor and utilising a lift at each end of the conveyor the empty platen is circulated using the bottom tier, to the start of the process line. The return conveyor utilises 24v dc Powered Roller Conveyor, the conveyor is driven using Poly V Belts.
