More Than Just Conveyor

When Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and other equipment manufacturers have needs for private labeling and custom fabrication without the high costs, they come to Omni Metalcraft Corp.

The Challenge

Egemin needed heavy duty capabilities and custom modifications to their AGVs without the high cost often associated with custom equipment in addition to private labeling and custom painting.

The Solution

Omni sales, engineering, and manufacturing formed a team dedicated to understanding and meeting Egemin’s high standards for conveyor equipment. This group worked together to make the Egemin conveyor specifications a new ‘standard’, therefore keeping costs low and reducing Egemin’s bottom line.

Meeting Egemin’s Specific Requirements:

Omni can pre-engineer a collection for the customer; provide pricing, SolidWorks approval drawings and a delivery schedule that fits the customer’s needs.

Some of the specialty modifications made to this CDLR included specific mounting holes and cross member locations for the AGV frame mounting. Heavy duty drive rollers with flange mounted bearings were used for this application as well as close roller centers to allow for a variety of pallet types. Additionally, metric fasteners and bearings were utilized along with special end caps that eliminated exposed fasteners at conveyor ends. The brand of motor was also chosen by the customer and the CDLR was provided with a custom powder coated finish and private labeled.

This is just one example of providing the customer with the benefits and control of in-house manufacturing, without the added hassles and overhead.
