Lauyans & Company’s client processes steel for manufacturing operations. They needed a way to offload plate steel from a shot blast operation.
The solution was a chain driven live roller (CDLR) conveyor. It allowed the client to offload multiple sheets of steel. The sheets were then picked up by a forklift and moved to the next stage in the process.
Shot was carried off by the sheets. Lauyans & Company added openings in the bottom of the conveyor to funnel loose shot into catch pans under the conveyor.
Lauyans & Co.’s design took into account the need to support and move heavy plate steel. The design also protected the conveyor from damage forklifts removing the plate steel.
