  • Cummins chooses LB Foster for automated engine transfer towline conveyors - LB Foster
    with the second due for completion later this year Cummins have had previous experience of working with LB Foster as the company has manufactured conveyor systems for several assembly lines in Daventry As a result the equipment is known to be well engineered robust and very reliable Ian Bennion is the manufacturing engineering leader for Cummins he explains why LB Foster was selected for this important project Automation in manufacturing is quite a niche market however it was a still a competitive tender Confidence in LB Foster s ability to complete the task was the deciding factor They were able to demonstrate that they had already designed and installed similar lines for other companies by showing us professional photographs and video evidence Automate for increased safety and efficiency In the past the large diesel engines were mounted on carts and moved manually through the different sectors of the paint process The decision to automate the lines was taken as part of a lean manufacturing initiative by Cummins Each line is split into two in floor towline conveyors divided by a paint spraying booth At the start of the process an engine is picked up by an overhead crane secured onto a cart before starting its slow journey down the line where it first enters the engine wash facility This is followed by a trim process where sections of the engine which do not require painting are masked off Another crane is then used to position the engine into the paint spraying booth and from there it is put back onto another cart to be towed by the second conveyor to the end of the line This process transports the engine into the drying oven through post paint trim inspection and then finally it is transferred by crane onto a shipping skid Bennion comments We ve developed a close relationship with the LB Foster team over the years and they ve done a very good job on the first part of this project They collaborated well with our other suppliers and the installation crew was absolutely fantastic Safety of our employees is paramount using the new automated line we have taken away many of the manual processes At the end of each takt time alarms sound and a system of sensors ensure that operators have cleared the area for the engines to automatically move up to the next process In addition we ve increased our engine throughput and improved efficiency by processing engines more quickly and moving them smoothly down the line in a disciplined way Post a Comment Your email is never shared Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment Confused about Conveyors View the LB Foster Definitive Guide to Conveyors Click here for more information on all of our materials handling solutions Visit the gallery View our latest masterpieces Click here to view our existing gallery of the solutions we have delivered for other businesses to improve efficiency and increase profits You won t be disappointed Read all

  • LB Foster’s overhead conveyor chosen for Investment Castings
    LB Foster team proved to be very flexible with their delivery date We had ordered the conveyor several months in advance however it could only be delivered and installed when we were completely ready in our factory Once we d made the necessary preparations the whole delivery and build process went very smoothly We received the conveyor on a Monday then it was assembled and commissioned by Thursday of the same week The new overhead conveyor from LB Foster is situated inside a temperature controlled room It is used to dry out the ceramic coated wax moulds transporting them in a continuous loop around three large central fans There are 26 rotating jig locations on the conveyor and each jig can hold two runners Each runner can support one large mould or numerous small moulds with a total weight of up to 30kgs It takes two days to process the moulds with four ceramic coats applied to the wax mould on the first day and four further layers on day two Drying takes place after each coat is applied After a long overnight dry on the conveyor the wax can be removed from the mould The ceramic shell is then fired and filled with molten metal to create the precision casting With the addition of the new conveyor we now have a very efficient mould processing operation with double the production capacity concludes Clarkson This is important to us as our company is experiencing growth which I anticipate will be as much as 35 over the next 12 months We ve always maintained a good relationship with LB Foster they supply a quality product and we would absolutely recommend them Post a Comment Your email is never shared Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment Confused about Conveyors View

  • Overhead conveyor solutions for improved productivity - LB Foster
    products on work trolleys through various processes For Aston Martin trolley conveyors were the ideal solution as the trolleys carrying the car bodies through the manufacturing process could pass seamlessly through the painting process Each body was on a trolley and Aston Martin installed six individual trolley conveyors for the car body painting facility The selection process for an overhead conveyor The first factor to consider when selecting an overhead conveyor is the type dimensions envelope and weight of the goods that will be transported This will establish the overall carrying capacity required and the size of conveyor needed to ensure that the load remains stable A large but light product may need to be transported by a heavier duty system to optimise the stability of the moving load Process requirement This is the next determining factor where will the conveyor be located and what type of surface finishing facility is it wet or powder coating It is also important to take into consideration the different environments the system has to cope with In a paint facility the conveyor has to work in harsh conditions from corrosive chemicals in the pre treatment plant to extreme heat in the curing ovens as well as paint or powder contamination in the paint booth Throughput high or low Understanding the throughput of the goods to be carried is a vital element in the decision process regarding the speed and pitch of the conveyor In some cases different procedures in the production process require the conveyor to travel at varying speeds or indeed have elements where part of the conveyor remains stationary for periods of time Once the process and throughput requirements are established a decision on the type of conveyor can be made At this point it is necessary to consider the supporting structure for the system A roof supported conveyor is ideal as it keeps the floor area completely clear The roof however may not be strong enough or sufficiently close to the system to bear its weight In such circumstances floor mounted steel work is installed to provide a supporting structure An overhead track will self support over three metres so a combination of columns spine beams and brackets can be used to give optimum support with the least encumbrance at ground level Reduce the risks Calling in experts right from the start of the decision process is a good way of avoiding possible problems Here at LB Foster we understand the key issues that have to be addressed Gary Bale managing director of LB Foster Materials Handling comments We can provide a total project management service designing manufacturing and installing the entire conveyor and control mechanism or at the other end of the scale supply the conveyor only Selecting a supply partner like us with a UK base means that lead times are kept to a minimum and we can react quickly when the goalposts change which they inevitably do The task of selecting the right overhead conveyor is not
