Problem analysis

The project aimed to create a transport system that would allow the transportation of engine blocks from the foundry machine without using traditional technological pallets.

The client set the following goals for PROMUS Katowice Sp. z o.o.:

Objectives

The project aimed at significantly reducing operational costs through the automation of transportation.

The project aimed to ensure the continuity of the production process 24/7, eliminating unnecessary downtimes.

Customer requirements

The next step after familiarizing ourselves with the goals set by the client was a detailed identification and analysis of their requirements. Based on this, we defined the following challenges that we had to meet.

Traditional technological pallets were unsuitable for this task, so we had to find an alternative solution that would allow for the direct transport of engine blocks.

The transport system had to operate reliably to avoid production delays and product loss.

Production was conducted at a pace that required rapid and efficient transportation of engine blocks.

The priority was to protect workers and ensure safety during transportation.

Applied solutions

We utilized a specially designed accumulation chain that minimized the risk of damaging the finished casting. This chain is capable of conveying engine blocks, eliminating the risk of mechanical damage

To ensure fast and precise transportation, we employed a transverse carriage equipped with additional linear guides. With this solution, we were able to achieve the accuracy the client expected while maintaining short production cycle times.

Benefits of implementing the system

The solution contributed to significant operational cost savings through process automation. The implemented solutions eliminated the risk of mechanical damage to transported products, thereby reducing losses.

The project eliminated downtime on the production line.

The project ensured overall workplace safety.

Increase efficiency and reduce costs through modern automation.
