As the world embraces the shift towards electric vehicles (EVs), the demand for higher capacity conveyor systems in battery production has reached new heights. AMC, a pioneer in conveyor applications, recently made a significant contribution to the industry. They were able to provide a turnkey solution complete with Controls, PLC Design and programming in addition to installing on site at the customer’s plant.
1. Payload Capacity: Over 8,000 lbs
One of the standout features of this system was its impressive payload capacity. With the ability to handle loads exceeding 8,000 lbs, AMC was able to ensure that the system is robust enough to handle large loads effectively and precisely.
2. 138’ Mod 4 Loop Structure
The system comprises a 138’ Mod 4 loop structure that allows for seamless transportation of the pallet within the battery curing loop, optimizing the production process.
3. Innovative Rotates and Center Drive Conveyors
To further enhance functionality, the system incorporates four rotates and nine individual center drive conveyors. This configuration provides flexibility in the production line, accommodating various stages of battery manufacturing with precision and efficiency.
Unique Challenges and Solutions:
The installation posed unique challenges, especially considering it was set up on a mezzanine. The weight distribution on the mezzanine’s I-beams required meticulous planning and engineering expertise to ensure structural integrity and safety.
Installing such a complex system on an elevated platform demanded precision in both design and execution. AMC rose to the occasion, demonstrating its capability to overcome challenges inherent in unconventional installations.
AMC’s Mod4 system stands as a testament to the company’s commitment to innovation and excellence in engineering. As the demand for electric vehicles continues to grow, AMC’s contribution to the EV Battery Production highlights the importance of advanced conveyance systems in streamlining production processes.
