WHAT IS THE SIDE LOADING SYSTEM CARMOVER
The CarMover side-loading system is composed of four plates and works on rails using one plate for every wheel of the vehicle. It is easy, fast, effortless and is designed to be used by just one technician.
TECHNICAL FEATURES OF THE SIDE LOADING SYSTEM
Each plate weighs only 8 kg or 17.6 pounds. By design, it is easy for the technician to move the vehicle from the end of the conveyor line to the starting point. Each plate’s load capacity is 700 kg or 1,543 pounds.
The plate is produced with a special aluminum alloy and geometric structure, which guarantees no bending. The plastic connectors, on each side of the plate, permit the vehicle wheels to go up to the plate effortlessly and without any slipping problems.
This side-loading system allows one technician to move a vehicle along the paint line by pushing it with an effort of only 12 Kg or 26 lb. The design uses special wheels and a rail system where the point of contact between them is very thin, reducing the friction to a minimum and permitting a technician to move the vehicle using little effort. This is a fundamental bodyshop equipment to help improve productivity.
The CarMover works with two different types of rails, having the same performance. One is inside the floor level and the other one is above floor level.
The number of rail positions is five per bay in Europe and six in North America. This allows the CarMover side-load system to accommodate every model and size of vehicle.
