More Than Just Conveyor
Egemin is a leading OEM of AGV’s (automated guided vehicles) offering the latest in AGV technology. As a complete system integrator, they can provide an end user one stop shopping for floor conveyor and integrated machines. The powered conveyor decks for Egemin AGV’s require understanding the specific needs of fit, function and durability. Omni Metalcraft Corp's strengths are providing conveyor to meet these specific needs without the high cost of custom equipment.
Egemin needed heavy duty capabilities and custom modifications to their AGV's without the high cost often associated with custom equipment in addition to private labeling and custom painting.
Omni sales, engineering, and manufacturing departments formed a team dedicated to understanding and meeting Egemin’s high standards for conveyor equipment. This dedicated team, along with engineering and plant management, worked together to make the Egemin conveyor specifications a new 'standard', therefore keeping costs low and reducing Egemin’s bottom line.
Meeting Egemin’s Specific Requirements:
Omni can pre-engineer a collection for the customer; provide pricing, SolidWorks approval drawings and a delivery schedule that fits the customer's needs.
Some of the specialty modifications made to this CDLR included specific mounting holes and cross member locations for the AGV frame mounting. Heavy duty drive rollers with flange mounted bearings were used for this application as well as close roller centers to allow for a variety of pallet types. Additionally, metric fasteners and bearings were utilized along with special end caps that eliminated exposed fasteners at conveyor ends. The brand of motor was also chosen by the customer and the CDLR was provided with a custom powder coated finish and private labeled.
This is just one example of providing the customer with the benefits and control of in-house manufacturing, without the added hassles and overhead.
