In paint shops, overhead conveyors are primarily used in underbody sealing and seam sealing. Both our electric monorail systems and the Twin Trolley System (T.T.S.®), available only from Dürr, are ideally suited for this purpose. Suspended roller beds complete our portfolio.
Electric monorail systems (EMS) consist of single trolleys with friction wheel drives, and transport the bodies through the paint shop. The electric monorail system is all about flexibility: optionally equipped with Vertical Adjustable Carrier (VAC), production lines and transport routes can cross each other and bodies can be lowered to any desired working height. Body lift units are used to convey them to other levels.
Dürr supplies Power & Free conveyors at the customer’s request. These consist of a continuously running drive chain (Power), which is coupled to the hanger with the help of a latch. By unlocking the latch, the carriage can be stopped as needed despite a running chain (Free).
The system with suspended roller beds is based on elements from the skid conveyor system and offers a high degree of standardization and consistency.
The most silent and clean conveyor system ever designed.
The Twin Trolley System® (or T.T.S.®) is a system of modules used for the handling of loads in body-in-white, paint shops and final assembly. The modules (aluminum rails, trolleys, drive modules), may be combined in many different ways. The layout is completely customizable by adding switches, vertical and horizontal bends in the free stretches between one drive unit and the next. The movement comes essentially from pairs of two trolleys, that’s why we call it “twin”.
T.T.S.® is the most sustainable conveyor system in the market. Silent operation, no lubrication, low energy consumption are its main features. Check out our T.T.S.® presentation for more details.
- T.T.S.® classic: overhead conveyor for medium payloads (e.g. automotive industry, body-in-white, paint and final assembly shops)
- T.T.S.® light: overhead conveyor for payloads up to 500kg (e.g. automotive industry, light components and bodies)
- T.T.S.® heavy: overhead conveyor for payloads up to 6.500kg (e.g. aircraft industry)
- Inverted T.T.S.®: floor conveyor
Over 60km of T.T.S.® have been installed all over the world, in 3 continents, for over 30 customers, in over 30 plants. T.T.S.® is the sustainable alternative to traditional conveyor systems.
