  • Offer Profile
  • Since 1953 CREFORM has incorporated in its modular system all elements for an efficient material flow. With the proven philosophy (KAIZEN) and the suitable CREFORM products you will increase the efficiency of your products dramatically.

    No matter whether you are active, for example, in the automobile industry, food industry or in aviation; whether you distribute medical devices or assemble electronic components, CREFORM helps your corporation with the introduction of lean manufacturing.

    Through the use of CREFORM systems a well organized manufacturing process with very short response times and high flexibility develops. Optimal quality, cost reduction and time saving are only a few of the resulting competitive advantages.
Product Portfolio
  • Automated Guided Vehicles

  • Automated Guided Carts (AGC) by CREFORM bring motion into your manufacturing flow. The transport of materials is optimized to become efficient, flexible and very cost-saving.

    While doing so AGC do not only take on pure transport jobs, like chaining of manufacturing and assembling equipments, but also warehouse service and commissioning tasks.
    Driverless transport systems from CREFORM are the elegant solution for an automated material flow within an enterprise.
    Because of their compatibility with the CREFORM pipe-plug system you can design AGC’s exactly according to your vision and requirements. Because of their light and modular construction, CREFORM AGC’s run very economically – however the structure is still extremely loadable.

    Place the magnetic or optical guidance trace along the desired route and you are ready to go. The sensors in the drive unit will read the course of the route.
    Additional signal units on the floor allow creep driving, stops and change in direction. Obstacles are recognized through another sensory technology, which safely stops the AGC.
    In case of a route change, simply remove the guidance trace and lay it along the new route.

    Automated Guided Carts (AGC) are track-bound haulage systems with driverless transport vehicles. The single driverless transport carts carry cargo between two or more stations within a determined route. The load taking, delivery and vehicle control take place through SPS.
     
    • Pipe racking system

        • CREFORM - Pipes

        • The standard pipe H-4000 has an outer diameter of Ø 28mm. The wall consists of 0.7mm thick cold-rolled steel. Extremely light and high stability characterise this pipe.

          The sheathing for ASA thermoplast is available in different colours. The length of the pipe is 4000mm and the inside of the pipe is coated with a corrosion protector.

          In addition to the standard Ø28mm pipe CREFORM offers two more outer diameters. Ø42mm for structures with high loads and long dimensions. Ø32mm for skate tracks and to extend the Ø28mm pipe for vertical adjustments.

          Moreover CREFORM offers many other pipe types, which let you resolve almost any task and problem in your manufacture.

          The possible load of the Ø28mm standard pipe is pictured in the chart. The values in the chart represent maximum proportional limits. Exceeding these values leads to permanent deformation of the pipe. Higher load values are resolved simply and easily by using a double pipe to double or respectively triple the load values.

          This picture shows the test arrangement, in which the results of the above chart are ascertained. This testing takes place before and after each production charge of the pipe to guarantee constant quality. CREFORMs principle is to keep your equipment lean and demand-oriented as well as easy to modify and without oversized and unnecessary investments.

          Electrostatic discharge (ESD) describes the procedures and effects at the clearing of electrical charges between two differently charged materials. When these touch, positive and negative charges are exchanged.

          Important for electronic manufacture with ESD protection zones! Of course CREFORM also offers ESD capable components, which let you use the required structures in ESD protection zones as well. The ESD capability has been confirmed by a testing institute; we will gladly send you the test report.

        • Joints

        • CREFORM metal connectors are made from cold-rolled steel and go through surface treatment to prevent corrosion. They consist of two or more components, which are secured with special nuts and bolts. Through deep-drawn interlinking a robust connection between the pipe and the metal connector is created.

          CREFORM standard joints

          Connectors are the base components of all CREFORM structures. The CREFORM pipes are connected through them. Depending on the application, metal or plastic connectors are used. Both types have the same stability but different applications:

          Metal Joints:

          - Suitable for most applications
          - Large choice of joint types
          - Standard bolt size (5mm hex head)
          - High strength, long-durability steel
          - Coated for corrosion resistance
          - Nickel-plated version for ESD structures
          - Special stainless steel connectors available
          - Ø 28mm, Ø32mm and Ø42mm connectors available

          Plastic Joints:

          - Numerous options; more than 90 to choose from
          - Economical
          - Lightweight
          - Easy to glue
          - Durably firm
          - Different colours
          - UV and moisture resistant

          CREFORM plastic connectors consist of high-quality thermoplast ASA plastic. Plastic connectors are economical, light and intended for permanent connections. This permanent and durable connection is achieved through gluing the pipe and plastic connector.

        • Accessories

        • With different skate wheel conveyors you can transport almost any imaginable container shape in their transport structure. For every application there is a different railway bracket with stop and surrender function.

          In the event of damaged castors, every single part of our CREFORM skate wheel conveyors can be exchanged separately.

          A broad spectrum of castors and roles with different diameters, running coatings and installation possibilities also form part of CREFORM accessories.

          Our technical advisors are more than happy to assist you with the right choice of castors and roles.

          CREFORM offers different floor elements for static structures, which are chosen according to your manufacturing requirements.

          Also applicable is: light elements for light structures and not vice versa! No unnecessary waste of material. With CREFORM you can always modify.

        • Tools

        • No extra qualification!

          A pipe cutter to modify structures, hexagon socket wrench, ratchet to fix nuts and bolts, tape ruler, inside and outside deburrer for pipes and a hammer to drive in the legs – only these few tools are needed to integrate your equipment with CREFORM.

          We recommend a simple commercially available vertical band saw to cut larger quantities of pipes. The pipes are very easy to cut because of the adequate wall thickness.

        • Starter Kit

        • The Starter-Kit is the ideal introduction into the world of KAIZEN. With this package employees gather their first experiences handling the CREFORM system and will learn very quickly to implement improvements. This optimization affects various areas: productivity, tightened and flexible processing of manufacturing tasks, ergonomic workplaces, economy as well as ‘Just-in-time’ warehouse stock keeping with small costs, higher quality and minimal space requirements.

          The standard Starter-Kit contains a choice of different pipes, metal connectors, castors and other components.

          During a one or two day workshop we teach your employees how to handle the CREFORM system and develop initial applications together.
