AR/RS

Substantial metal flaking occurs on many AS/RS stacker cranes, either or both on rails or drive wheel treads, which leads to relatively short wheel service life. This situation can be improved by applying SPC® solutions.

Preventive maintenance

Reduce metal abrasion on wheels and rails by up to 80%, saving you costly machine downtimes and expensive replacements parts, thus extending the operating life of your machinery.

Environment-friendly

Integrate enviromentally safe and degradable lubricants that contaminate neither ground, water nor air and produce no toxic, flammable or explosive by-products.

Innovative friction control

Change the friction coefficient where necessary without sacrificing any protective properties to either further improve adhesion or minimize friction damage.

Highly durable and resistant

Benefit from highly durable materials used as ingredients to make our coatings not only resistant to weather, humidity but also extreme temperatures (305°C) without loosing any of their properties.

Simple implementation

Designed for minimal installation effort and incorporating an easy replacement mechanism our products require little knowledge and labor to attach and maintain.

SPC® Anti-Wear for AS/RS

SPC® anti-wear coatings substantially reduce mechanical surface wear and metal flaking on drive wheels treads, guide rollers and railheads on all types of wheel/rail connected conveying equipment in high bay warehouses. Our products are effective on both the horizontal (x) and vertical (y) rail surfaces.

Especially older AS/RS systems can be overloaded, no longer in alignment, altered by the end-user to run faster or operate beyond the design parameters of the crane manufacturer. Sometimes parts replaced previously were not of the required quality. These causes will increase the wear on metal surfaces and create flaking and pitting. The moving parts and supporting rails wear out faster and must be replaced or resurfaced at high cost and possible unplanned production shut-down.

SPC® surface protective coatings can reduce the surface wear on such wheels and rails by up to 80%. Thereby increasing the operating lives of parts by 3 to 5 times.

Tractions Enhancer vs. Dry Lubricant

Containing an innovative traction enhancer, the block type MSB improves the contact between two surfaces and reduces wear and metal flaking. Used for drive wheels and railheads.

By increasing the traction (up to 0.35µ), wheel slippage and “slip-stop” motions, as well as lateral wheel movement, are substantially reduced. Thereby, creating less resistance and wear between the contact surfaces.

The coating with a sliding effect is generating a very low coefficient of friction between two surfaces by acting as a dry lubricant, the block type TSB reduces the friction (to a constant 0.05µ) and subsequently the wear between the surfaces.

SPC® dry protective coatings bond strongly to metal surfaces and modify the structure by patching and filling the surface and, with a very thin film, create a dry, smooth surface condition. This in turn distributes heavy loads more evenly over the increased surface, reducing damage and wear.

SPC® blocks are self-applying and continually repair the coatings to maintain a constant, optimum coefficient of friction between the contacting surfaces. This reduces stress and mechanical wear on the metal.

Reduce down-times

Reduce cost-intensive downtimes on your rail-bound systems or rotating equipment. Substantial metal flaking occurs on many AS/RS stacker cranes, either or both on rails or drive wheels treads. Relatively short wheel service lives and metal flakes along the rails are proof of high metal surface wear.

ComparisonBefore/after

The shiny metal particles indicate high surface pressure poorly distributed and excessive lateral wheel migration, which is an obvious indicator for mechanical surface wear on wheels, guide rollers and rails.
Increasingly higher crane weights and traversing speeds, combined with starting, accelerating and braking action under varying loads, amplify this situation. Because a crane does not tend to drive in a straight line but migrates laterally somewhat across the top of the rail, the stress on the metal surfaces is increased even further.

Please contact us and we will assess your equipment and devise a plan to minimize your production losses caused by unnecessary abrasion together.
