Case Study: Buffering Conveyor System

Photo illustrating the best case "Buffering Conveyor System".

The assignment

Design and build buffering conveyor system for vehicle bodies prior to plant entrance.

The challenges

  • Limited space required ceiling suspended mezzanine to be designed and fabricated so equipment could be installed over existing welding equipment.
  • Building trusses were initially found to be inadequate to support mezzanine, so ceiling reinforcement was necessary.
  • All work was to be completed during shutdowns and off hours.

The process

Step 1

Reinforce roof trusses to support mezzanine.

Step 2
Hanging the mezzanine supports designed by Leadec. Note: Roller beds lifted to sections as they are installed.

Step 3
Installing mezzanine sections designed by Leadec. Note: Installed and welded.

Step 4
All conveyor design completed with Inventor

Step 5
Conveyor assembled and kitted at shop. Note: Kitting, prewired and tested in shop to reduce installation time.

Step 6
PLC design and fabrication completed. Note: Kitting, prewired and tested in shop to reduce installation time.

Step 7
Installed and commissioned on site.
