Product Portfolio
  • OVERHEAD- AND FLOOR CONVEYORS

  • Solutions based on your requirements

    OCS offers a complete range of internal transport systems with overhead and floor conveyors for production processes and storage systems. The systems have all the necessary features such as Power & Free buffers, workstations, switches, curves, vertical conveyors and automatic loading positions.
      • OVERHEAD CONVEYORS

      • Flexible pickup, storage and production solutions

        Today’s industry is characterized by a pace requiring rapid changes in production. It must be efficient, clean and quiet, with consistent and smooth transportation, whether it’s order picking, storage, assembly or manufacturing.

        This means that pace-efficient, hanging conveyor solutions are required to be integrated into the assembly processes, enabling short lead times and the flexiblility to change. Furthermore, it is important that the entire production does not stop during any adjustments or if any errors occur (which is the case with chain driven conveyors). OCS overhead conveyors – built on our patented friction-based technology – meet all the requirements imposed on lean conveyor solutions with loads up to 7500kg and drive speed between 1-80m/min.

          • OUR TECHNOLOGY

          • Friction-free by friction

            Everyone strives for a frictionless production process where everything is lean. We also do this by building our technology on – friction. A patented technology that provides an oil-free, quiet and flexible conveyor solution.

            The track’s driving mechanisms on our two overhead conveyors consist of a friction belt for the OCS 150 and a rotating aluminum tube for the OCS 500, both driven by a worm gearmotor.

            The OCS 150 trolleys are equipped with a friction pad which is pressed against the drive belt by means of spring force. In this way the force is transferred to the drive plate and the trolley is moved forward by friction. On the OCS 500, The trolley has four angled wheels that apply pressure on to a rotating aluminium tube. In this way, the rotational force is transferred through the wheels driving the trolley forward by friction. Clean, quiet and efficient.
              • Technology and knowledge for the optimal solution

                      Initial components are numerous and they have a high degree of complexity. Furthermore, great flexibility is needed to quickly switch production to new models. Transport systems with airframe conveyors must be space efficient, able to integrate with mounting machines and communicate with machines such as robots, screwdrivers and superior process systems.

                      Like other modern industries, the conveyor solutions should also be clean, quiet and ergonomic to meet both human and technical needs and requirements. With the OCS patented overhead conveyors – built on friction instead of space-intensive and inflexible chain or the more expensive EMS Electric Monorail system – all the requirements are achieved to be lean, clean & green.

                      Of course, we also offer traditional floor conveyors for handling pieceware.

                      • The surface treatment industry is a fast-paced industry where the main companies are planning and working fully according to the lean principle.

                        Lean orientation means that more and more businesses are looking at their sometimes outdated chain conveyors, which are often space-intensive and where the entire process stops if errors occur on the chain. Just like the automotive and aviation industry, most surface treatment industries have a complex process with many steps, whether it’s metals, plastics or other materials being treated.

                        The solution must be safe according to the ATEX directive, but also space efficient and be able to be driven back and forth at different speeds. With OCS patented overhead solutions – based on friction instead of space-intensive and inflexible chain or the more expensive EMS Electric Monorail system – all the requirements for safe, quiet and clean motion are achieved.

Our technology allows trolleys to go both forward and backwards in the system to maximize efficiency and minimize the utilization of floor space. It is clean, quiet and possible to drive the trolleys at different speeds with soft start and stop.

                            It is modularly structured and modifiable. All system modules and components are pre-assembled at our workshop and delivered in complete assemblies, so regardless of whether we replace your old system or build a new one, the installation will be completed in as short a time as possible to give a quick start up. A complete OCS system usually results in approximately 30% less space being used than with a traditional system.
