Comprehensive Conveyor Belt Solutions for the Automotive Industry
Efficiency, reduction of downtime, worker health and safety can be listed as a few of the critical success factors in today’s competitive automotive industry. Habasit for the manufacture of automobiles and automobile components; offers special solutions made of antistatic, flame retardant and various materials with different electrical conductivity.
Covering the entire automobile manufacturing process, from body panel pressing to final vehicle inspection, Habasit has a solution for every application need. Fabric-based conveyor belts, plastic modular belts and synchronous belts are designed to challenge the toughest working conditions.
APPLICATIONS IN METAL PRESS LINES Habasit offers belt types and configurations specific to various applications in the metal stamping line. HabaSYNC® synchronous belts are widely used in the separation of sheet panels and in press feed lines. Fabric-based conveyor belts also serve at many different points from feeding to exit. Thanks to its long life and durability, HabasitLINK® plastic modular belts offer the ideal solution for press outlet lines.
WIDELY USE IN BODY AND PAINTING LINES HabasitLINK® plastic modular tapes are widely used in bodywork and painting lines. These belts increase the reliability of other connected production lines, minimizing maintenance, repair and unplanned downtimes. If a certain part of the belt is damaged, the module can be easily replaced in a short time without the need for complex tools. HabasitLINK® plastic modular tapes are designed to withstand the harshest conditions in bodywork and other paint processes. Since these belts are produced according to the injection molding technique with high-strength materials, they can carry the heaviest loads without any problems. These products, which have a very low coefficient of friction, offer the ideal solution for painting lines without the need for any lubricant. Low noise levels and energy consumption are the main advantages of HabasitLINK® plastic modular belts over traditional metal chain conveyors.
SPECIALLY DESIGNED PRODUCTS FOR INSTALLATION AND QUALITY CONTROL LINES HabasitLINK® plastic modular tapes also include products specifically designed for automotive assembly and quality control lines. It can be manufactured from materials that are antistatic, flammable, electrically conductive or have any two of these at the same time in order to meet special needs in a wide variety of configurations to carry the vehicles and the workers who perform the assembly of these vehicles. Textile-based conveyor belts can also be used to transport workers and tools before the vehicle is placed on wheels and conveyors in the final assembly area.
