E-Coated Cowl Panel in Specialized Packaging

A tier one automotive supplier awarded Winchester Coatings Inc., a contract for a large dimensional and high volume product. To accommodate this project in a safe and efficient manner, WCI designed and installed a complete system that would carry unpainted parts directly from the receiving area to the E-coat paint line. Once painted, the parts were conveyed to an assembly area for the application of a foam strip. Upon completion of assembly, the parts were then placed into specialized packaging and forwarded to the final inspection area via transfer cars.

This specially designed system consists of an overhead trolley/conveyor and floor mounted container conveyor (with manual transfer cars). The system is capable of delivering 20 racks of various parts per minute. Thus, enabling WCI to achieve the requirements of 6 tractor trailer loads per day in a J.I.T. (just in time) manner.
