Overhead conveyors for final assembly

Dürr offers a large variety of overhead conveyor systems for the different requirements in final assembly.

Electric monorail system (EMS)

Electric monorail systems from Dürr are available as standardized systems and as a special solution:

  • Lightweight EMS for the transport of smaller components up to 500 kg, such as doors, cockpits, engines and other assemblies
  • Heavy-duty EMS with a payload capacity of up to 3,000 kg for transporting bodies. We have produced special designs up to 7 tons.

Dürr supplies and develops hangers with stroke scissors with a stroke of up to 4.5 m in a variety of different designs, each individually adapted to customer needs. This allows you to set up optimum ergonomic conditions for every work cycle and the transfer of logistics and transport routes inside the factory.

Vertical Adjustable Carrier (VAC)

Dürr's height-adjustable load-bearing devices (VAC) can be used in combination with electric monorail systems or the Twin Trolley System (T.T.S.®). The scissor lift ensures hanger stability and allows individual height adjustment at every work zone. Body carriers are available as C-, T- or four-arm hangers. For lifting, there is a polyurethane belt with integrated steel cables designed for a payload of up to 3 tons.

You have the option to replace conventional busbars with non-contact energy and data transmission. This results in less wear, higher availability and, ultimately, minimized repair and maintenance costs. A swivel arm system enables the transfer from overhead to floor conveyors. The system can also be equipped with a body locking device.

Thanks to its minimum height requirements, Dürr VAC can be used in almost all existing plants in the body shop, painting and final assembly areas. This provides complete accessibility to the body and can be used in flow or stop-and-go modes. The standardized, modular system meets all worldwide safety standards in the automotive industry.

Alongside VAC, we also offer rotary hangers for our overhead conveyors to improve ergonomics even further. They swivel the vehicle, providing a far more comfortable working position for underbody tasks.

Twin Trolley System (T.T.S.®)

This system developed by Dürr can be used either as an overhead or floor conveyor. In contrast to the electric monorail system, the drives are not housed on the carriage, but on the track. The two pusher dogs (trolleys) of a carriage are positively driven by toothed belts, allowing very high speeds. With horizontal and vertical bends as well as track switches, turning elements and cross transfers, the system is highly flexible.
