Watch this short video to see how our engineered conveying solutions improved an engine manufacturer's production process.
The Problem: An engine manufacturer had a process in place that, although highly automated, was not efficient enough. Plant management contacted Industrial Kinetics to help them reduce the time it took to move a 3,000lb engine into and out of a testing fixture.
The Solution: Industrial Kinetics extended the existing conveyor by adding pop-up chain transfers, sensors, and controls. This created an accumulation zone where loads could be staged before moving into the testing area.
The Result: The cycle from the end of a test and the beginning of the next test was reduced by 60%. The customer achieved gains in efficiency and productivity by improving throughput for extra demand without having to add more test stations.
