Improving assembly lines

Paul Boughton

A new conveyor system was designed and built by MiniTec for a global automotive company as part of their assembly for car lights. The flexible mounting system has workpiece carriers that are transported on accumulation roller chains, special chains or slings.

The standardised modules for exact positioning, lifting or turning allows very rapid implementation of complete assembly lines.

The chain conveyor has a track width of 300mm and a transport height of 600mm. The conveyor speed is 12m/min with a weight per workpiece of about 8kg. MiniTec's system has an 18m conveyor line with 7 drives (TCCL). It features 4 rotary table 90 degrees (DG90) and 2 Swivel track sections (passage for worker).
