In the steel processing industry and in the metal and steel construction industry, skid transport systems are essential to ensure that plates and profiles are transported to the machines in an economical way. As a matter of fact, the automatic transport and storage of profiles and flat materials are particularly important to ensure economic production.
In most cases, roller conveyors are electrically powered and are managed by an operator via a control panel. Furthermore, there are cross transfer tables located in front of and behind the relevant machines (shot peening machines, painting lines, etc.) to storage the material.
Turbotecnica, leader in the production of shot blasting machines, has created a skid conveyor for a customer in the field of shipbuilding. Each skid conveyor has a lifting capacity of 4 tons and the streamlined design simplifies its use and maintenance.
