Lauyans & Company designs over/under conveyor solutions that provide stored and staged returnable pallets and containers, which assure the timely delivery of parts to line-side operators. Options include:
- Gravity roller or powered conveyor
- Single or multiple queue zones
- Ergonomic positioning (Operator adjustable height or Tilt)
Over/under conveyors are primarily used to reduce space for line-side unloading of pallets or containers. They utilize a self-contained pallet-handling over/under loop. Typical sequence of operation would be:
- Full containers to be staged on a lower level. When an operator requires more parts, the container will move into a work-in-process station where the operator has ergonomic access to the parts.
- When the container is empty the operator presses a button to initiate the container change out process. The empty container is lifted to the upper conveyor level where it is staged for pick up by a material handler.
- The lift unit moves to the lower level to accept the next full container and the cycle starts over.
