Capital intensive automobile manufacturing plants produce a large volume of high quality vehicles. But they also must be flexible to handle a wide variety of rapidly changing models. Only the most versatile, reliable, and ergonomic equipment is used in modern automotive plants – and that is exactly where you will find Conductix-Wampfler products.
In the early stages of manufacture, electric overhead traveling cranes ( EOT) handle steel coils, foundry parts, and raw materials. Transfer cars take tooling and materials to and from the presses in the press shop. Components are transferred by Electrified Monorail Systems ( EMS) to the body shop, where “bodies in white” (BIW) take shape. EMS or powered skid conveyors move raw car bodies to the paint shop. Large scale Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems ( AS/RS) provide a storage buffer for just-in-time sequencing of assemblies. Automated guided vehicles ( AGV) and rail guided vehicles (RGV) are used at the drive train pre-assembly lines and at the “marriage line” (chassis decking). In final assembly, EMS and conveyors operate under the ceiling, while skillet lines work at floor level. Assembly workers need workstations, hoists, tool balancers, and tool transports for required tools, as well as electric and pneumatic power to operate them.
We offer a wide range of energy and data transmission solutions to work alongside the full spectrum of automotive manufacturing processes. Whether it is to provide power and data for cranes, electrified monorail systems, conveyors, transfer cars, skillet systems, or assembly tools, Conductix-Wampfler has the right solutions for the need.
Electric/Compressed Air Systems, Tool Transports, and Balancers – to increase productivity and safety on assembly lines, our systems provide easy access to assembly line tools, constant electric and compressed air for power and ergonomic assists.
Spring-Driven Cable Reels – provide external 12V energy supply for the vehicle testing and for different types of transfer cars.
High-speed Cellular Buffers – to cushion impacts on lift stations and turntables.
Jay Radio Remote Controls – offer a safe way of operating or monitoring machines from a distance. The comprehensive range of industrial and safety radio remote controls offers countless solutions to adapt to an extensive number of automotive applications.

For transport within a facility, Conductix-Wampfler’s modular handling systems can provide customized transport solutions that ensure an optimum material flow. Various additional components, such as switching systems and curves, allow for the creation of complex tracks. The modular nature of the system and its simple assembly make it possible to plan and install a manual suspension track for many different applications.
Manual suspension tracks offer the following benefits:

Tool transporters are complete pre-assembled units that allow the use of multiple different tools, among other things. They can also be fitted with tool holders, perforated sheets, storage tubs for keeping small parts in storage containers, etc..
The load-bearing element is a ground cart / trolley. Vertical, collapsible aluminum tubes enable the transporter’s height to be adjusted.
The standard equipment includes a rubber profile along the edges of the steel storage tub for collision protection. Based on customer needs, the standard transporter can be fitted with additional components such as perforated plates, a tool holder, etc.
The tool transporter is designed for use by craftsmen or in industrial settings, even with low clearances. We supply workplace systems for every industrial sector as well as repair and assembly lines for the automotive industry and its suppliers.
