In the manufacturing industry, the automobile industry has continuously developed into one of the largest manufacturing industries in the world. The increasing demand for efficient manufacturing also requires more labor costs. Therefore, in order to safely and effectively improve productivity, the company needs to combine the transportation system to minimize costs.

According to statistics, the global value of the automobile manufacturing industry is 3.6 trillion dollars. With the development of the manufacturing industry, there are many tools used to manufacture automobiles, especially the transmission system. Next, we will show you several kinds of conveyors used in the automotive sector : roller conveyors, belt conveyors, chain conveyors, and overhead conveyors.

The automobile manufacturing industry uses conveying systems to produce cars faster and save money and labor. The followings are the four most commonly used conveyor used in the automotive sector and related descriptions.

Roller conveyor: roller conveyor can bear large loads and move heavy objects from one end to the other, such as pallets. In the automobile industry, roller conveyors are often fixed and installed, and their service life is relatively long.

Conveyors can be powered or unpowered, but they are often used in the form of chain drive in the automobile industry to efficiently complete the whole conveying process.

Belt conveyor: belt conveyor is one of the most popular conveyor types with a simple structure and diverse functions. They use rubber belts wrapped around a series of rollers to transport objects from one point to another. The belt conveyor can be installed in a horizontal and inclined state according to the demand, so as to carry out loading and unloading more easily.

Chain conveyor: chain conveyor is one of the main types of belt conveyor. As a conveyor line, it is applied to a series of applications in automobile manufacturing and assembly industry.

The chain conveyor consists of two sprockets moving along a continuous chain. Use its chain and motor to start the material running. The belt conveyor runs on two pulleys with material rings, which are called belts moving around them.

Overhead conveyor: The overhead conveyor is suitable for transporting materials to high places, and allows the load to be suspended on the overhead structure through hooks or similar accessories.

Although ground conveyors are very suitable for handling heavy objects, they may be a bit cumbersome in terms of direction flexibility. Elevated conveyors alleviate this problem.

The operation mode of these conveyors is very similar to that of monorail railway. They use the space above the workshop to transport the parts that are not too heavy, such as bumpers and doors.

They can be operated by chains or trolleys, and can be designed to travel in circles or straight lines.

The above is the description of relevant conveyors. More practical conveyor types can be selected according to the needs to maximize productivity. When these conveyor equipment are properly maintained by a well-trained and experienced conveyor manufacturing company, they will operate with maximum service life.

The conveyor equipment needs regular preventive maintenance according to the time interval recommended by the manufacturer. Without proper maintenance, the conveyor may fail, resulting in shutdown and production loss.

Conveyor manufacturing companies can also ensure that the working environment shared by machines and humans is safe. They do this again by ensuring the normal operation of the machine and establishing machine guards around the machine.
