Transfer Cars, Conveyors Use Space Wisely | Case Study for Han-Tek | Rochester, NY and High Point, NC Transfer Cars, Conveyors Use Space Wisely | Case Study for Han-Tek | Rochester, NY and High Point, NC

We had the right answer for queuing problem.

Their Challenge:

  • To add an additional 100 storage queues to an existing motor line.
  • Space was a major issue; they had to use the existing space in the factory and around the production line. 
  • Installation needed to be done and completed without shutting down the plant’s main line.

 

Our Solution:

  • We installed a transfer car that took production-line pallets loaded with engines and transported them to a chain conveyor storage system.
  • System was set up, tested, and perfected at Han-Tek; this enabled the final installation to be completed over a weekend.

 

The Results:

  • The chain conveyor storage system opened up more “buffer” space in the middle of the production line; that led to less downtime.
