Therma-Tron-X Inc.’s SlideRail Square Transfer (SST) material handling system performs high-volume finishing operations using a fraction of the space required by traditional monorail systems. Parts index along a pair of low-maintenance slide rails rather than a chain conveyor. Product racks suspended from load bars raise and lower in and out of the processing tanks simultaneously, and move in unison through the finishing process, minimizing material handling time. This system can handle high-volume plating, electrocoating, autodeposition coating, powder coating, liquid spray painting, cleaning, pretreatment and heat treatment operations. From screws to truck bodies, the SST is designed to handle a variety of part sizes, weights and complexities.
