ADJUSTABLE HEIGHT SKID (AHS): Trim and Chassis assembly line

CHALLENGE:

Our client wishes to retain a production line with an overhead and ground conveyor system that is still efficient and reliable. In order to improve ergonomics for their operators, our client wants to install a variable lift tables to assist with the vehicle trim line assemblies. The cost of implementing a traditional skillet system requires the dismantling of the current conveyor systems which is both too costly and time consuming.

SOLUTION:

The Adjustable Height Skid system is an independent lift table that could be placed on the steel conveyor. The AHS also acts as a temporary holding fixture for the Body-In-White which adds significant efficiency and eliminates product manipulation. With this system, our client was able to implement variable height lift tables at minimal costs and maximum flexibility. In fact, this solution is the perfect answer to any OEM who would like to add the flexibility of variable height lift tables without incurring the high costs of refurbishing their entire production line.

SKILLET LIFTER : Trim and Chassis assembly line

CHALLENGE:

Our client would like to develop/refurbish a production line and wishes to employ variable height lift tables in the vehicle assembly line to improve the ergonomics for the operators. The traditional hydraulic system is not environmentally friendly and the screw jack solution is too cumbersome for a modern production line. As with all automotive application, durability is key and our client wants to have lifters that can perform for decades.

SOLUTION:

A Spiralift skillet table removes the unclean oil of the hydraulic systems while significantly reducing the weight of the scissor lift table compared to the screw jack solutions. Furthermore, the Spiralift is very efficient therefore reducing the power consumption/requirement of a typical skillet table. The Spiralift solution also provides superior lift accuracy, minimal maintenance, and large flexibility desirable to all OEM manufacturers.

AUTOMATED GUIDED VEHICLE (AGV): Engine/Chassis Marriage

CHALLENGE:

Our client wishes to employ an Automated Guided Vehicle in the engine/chassis assembly process. In order to do so, they would like to use a lift actuator that is compact, lightweight, clean, and with very high accuracy. Furthermore, due to the small space available, an important element to consider is the lift open vs. closed ratio.

SOLUTION:

The Spiralift allows our client to work with the smallest foot print in the industry as well as the best lift open vs. closed ratio.  Furthermore, with an integrated non-electrical magnetic brake, the lifter will not drift during power off situations.  Finally, the use of a Spiralift allows significant weight reduction of the scissor lifter critically important to ensuring efficient use of electrical/battery power.
