Fori supplied manual push pallets on a vertical conveyor system consisting of a main build line and two vertical lift support stands.
Fori took a powered vertical conveyor system and redesigned it to a manual push pallet system based on cycle times and cost requirements. The redesign provided the customer increased flexibility for their process. The line was designed in modular sections for future expansion of increased production or added processes.
The ability to be flexible with the pallet provided the ability to use the vertical conveyor for more than current parts or model changes. Overhead support for tooling was a jib boom that bolted to the floor to remove the assembly to dunnage.
The vertical conveyor system was integrated during the first quarter of 2017. The project was a great success for the customer and Fori Automation.
