In the past 10 years, there have been major changes in the finishing industry that affect process times. In addition, the demand in most industries has fluctuated significantly. Manufacturing trends, including lean methodology, have changed our traditional method of processing parts. How do you design a paint system that is flexible and will handle the uncertainty of the future? In this session, we will review the latest in overhead conveyor technology for paint systems—friction-driven conveyors. We will review case studies of how friction-driven conveyors, teamed with smart controls, offer flexibility and expandability and have challenged traditional paint system monuments. 

Registrants will learn:

  • Difference between a friction-driven conveyor and traditional overhead conveyor
  • How IntelliFinishing systems are responsive to future changes
  • Key questions to determine if you should consider a friction-driven conveyor for your paint system
  • How to remove transportation waste by integrating your paint system and manufacturing processes with point of use delivery
