Automotive Parts Storage Conveyors

by | Articles, Parts Accumulation and WIP

Pacline offers overhead conveyor solutions for high-density storage systems with FIFO characteristics to allow the largest amount of automotive parts to be stored in the least amount of space. This is achieved by taking the automotive parts off the shop floor and utilizing the volume of the building. Below is an example of how an overhead conveyor solution can make automotive parts storage more efficient.

Automotive Parts Handled

Instrument Panel Substrate (Plastic Skeleton)

Example Project Goals

1. Need to store approximately 400 automotive parts
2. Minimize floor space used for storage
3. Minimize cost

Example Conveyor Solution

Using our cost-effective PAC-LINE™ overhead conveyor the operator would simply hook the instrument panel onto the overhead conveyor, which could be moving continuously or indexing. The automotive parts would fill the bottom level of the conveyor and then continue up to the second level or even third. When the buffer of parts reach the unload area, the operator would simply remove the part for use.

384 Instrument Panels in only 1200 ft²

The same approach is used for car frame components, in this case, 400 parts in only 584 sq ft.
