Devices designed to avoid dangerous maneuvers and the use of a crane in a beam production line.
There are mainly three:
- Conveyor: They can be motorized rolls for forward movement or carts that go up and down for lateral motion. Both are used in a complete production line to move between the different devices.
- Incline: They are used for the filling machines. They incline the beam 45 degrees in a way that the welding is applied having this one angled, making easier the welding control and maximum deposition.
- Turning: They can be with chain or with inclination arms. They are used to turn around the beams in every step of their manufacturing.
There are hydraulic and electric, they are quoted by project and involve creating a complete layout of the section.
