Bendet Engineering Services provides a host of overhead conveyor solutions for material handling in your facility. Our solutions are designed to be safe, durable, and dependable, all while enhancing the efficiency of your facility.
Industries in which overhead conveyors are used:
- All surface coating industries
- Assembly lines
- Manufacturing lines
- Material handling
Types of Overhead Conveyors Available
We offer a broad range of solutions that meet the needs and specialised applications of different types of facilities. Here are some of the overhead conveyors types we have on offer:
- P&F Range (Power and Free)
- Custom Solution
The type of overhead conveyor is determined once the application is understood. With our experience Bendet will recommend the best suited conveyor for your needs. Normal considerations include:
- Function and application
- Ambient and environmental conditions
- Weight to be conveyed
- Hanging pitch on conveyor
- Part dimensions and centre of gravity
- Conveying path
Overhead Conveyor Systems
Looking at the considerations for overhead conveyors, our range of products cover your needs. If a single hooking point does not satisfy the weight requirement or the part dimension requires it, a load bar is implemented in the design of the conveyor system. The load bar usually connects 2x hooking points on the conveyor to double up on weight restrictions. In some cases, a load bar also enables the part to be conveyed more securely from point A to point B and along the way.
JK Range – Monorail conveyor
This type of conveyor is normally implemented in light to medium weight applications. If a part needs to be conveyed from point A to point B with some processes and interactions along the way, this is our answer. Our JK conveyor options is part of monorail conveyor systems which can be a continuous, index or manual conveyor system.
Our standard hanging pitch is 150mm or 300mm. The load capacity per hooking point ranges from 8kg – 50kg.
X-Range – Monorail conveyor
This type of conveyor is normally implemented in medium to heavy weight applications. If the part is heavier or the processes along the way might apply too much weight to the part while being conveyed from point A to point B, this is your answer. Our X-Range conveyor options is part of monorail conveyor systems which can be a continuous, index or manual conveyor system.
Our standard range of X series conveyors include:
X348 conveyor has a load capacity of up to 120kg per hooking point with a pitch of 76.6mm.
X458 conveyor has a load capacity of up to 250kg per hooking point with a pitch of 102.4mm.
X678 conveyor has a load capacity of up to 500kg per hooking point with a pitch of 152.4mm.
P&F Range – Power and Free
If space restrictions and multi functionality of a conveyor line is required, a power and free conveyor is the one stop shop. Power and free conveyors can significantly reduce the footprint of your plant, while giving much more functionality. In traditional monorail systems the conveyor systems are usually limited to continuous or index capability with single pathing. With power and free conveyors, flexibility in control is virtually endless, while giving the capability of multi pathing.
Our range of power and free conveyors include P&F380, P&F400 and P&F420.
P&F380 power and free conveyor has a load capacity of up to 500kg per wagon.
P&F400 power and free conveyor has a load capacity of up to 3.500kg per wagon.
P&F420 power and free conveyor has a load capacity of up to 10.000kg per wagon.
We understand that a stock standard solution is not always feasible in certain applications. As part of our Turnkey solution to our clients, we also design and manufacture custom solutions for our clients. The custom solutions make use of standardized and readily available components to make maintenance and replacement of parts easy.
Our custom solutions are used in every industry. From food to material handling in a warehouse to solutions implemented in the mining industry and OEM manufacturers.
