OverHead Chain Conveyor – four wheel bi-planar type
Category: Chain Conveyor- OverHead & Floor Based
4 wheel Planar Chain with Alternate Load and Transmission Links for Guiding within Track for Horizontal, Inclined Bends and Overall Travel as per layout with Drive Unit, Tensioner and Control Panel.
Four wheel systems compared to the three wheel bi-planar type.
– is less flexible for sharp corners / turns
+ can carry only medium loads (max upto 150kgs, incl hanger weight)
+ layouts of much longer lengths can be installed
+ hanger / loads are more balanced due to bi-planar wheel alignment
Applications of Overhead Conveyors: they can be designed for the following:
•Various Processes involved in Washing, De-greasing, Drying, Phosphating, Powder Coating, Spray Painting, Dip Painting, Metalizing, Heating, Sand Blasting, Cooling, etc.
•Moving Inward/Outward materials or Semi-finished/Finished materials from one place or Department to the other.
•Moving Work In Process (WIP) materials from one place to another.
•Moving any materials using the Overhead Space, which is an effective tool for factories having space constraints.
•Using overhead conveyors, we can handle multifarious things which include Leather materials, Green and Withered Tea Leaves, Glass, Ceramics, Electronic components / instruments, Sheet Metal components, Clothing Garments, Cartons, Furniture items, LPG Tanks, Stamped parts, Wood and metals, plastics, wood, Food items, Switch Gears, Ovens, Slurries, Sporting goods, Pharmaceuticals, etc.
