Skid Conveyor in Car Painting System

Introduction

Measures
Habasit offered the M5020 POM dark grey as an alternative to the rubber belts. Tests showed no major sticking of paint on either PP or POM. The existing skid conveyor was rebuilt for modular belts using a PE gliding surface. Special machined sprockets were made for the existing shafts. The rebuilding was handled by the customer's own tool shop.

Benefits
The conveyor has been in operation since April 2004, and the customer is extremely satisfied: the switch from steel reinforced rubber belts to plastic modular belts has proved very successful. The HabasitLINK modular belt offers the following advantages:
• High strength
• Low-maintenance
• Virtually no downtime
• No cleaning necessary
• Reduction of emergency stock
• Very fast replacement
