Space Saving Shuttle System

In traditional paint systems, long parts require a lot of room to maneuver. IntelliFinishing's unique shuttle capabilities allow for a 40% reduction in floor space by eliminating the need for large radius turns.

Shuttle advantages include:

  • added flexibility
  • reduction in floorspace
  • ability to move parts to another line without unloading
  • no production downtime is required when you're ready to expand

Shuttle for Parts up to 53' and 10,000 lbs

Load Trail installed an IntelliFinishing automated finishing system capable of finishing trailers up to 53’ long and up to 10,000 lbs. per carrier at their Sulphur Springs, Texas facility.

After final weld, trailers are loaded immediately on a carrier within one of nine weld lanes. The trailers are then conveyed onto a primary shuttle which moves sequentially and laterally entering into each process step, and reversing out of that process area. The carrier moves between process areas via shuttle.

The IntelliFinishing system is an extremely flexible, bolt together finishing system that can handle very large or long products or even a wide range of product sizes and weights; often in a tight footprint. Intuitive conveyor controls integrated with each piece of process equipment ensures that every trailer and trailer part achieves its own optimal finish.

Shuttle for Parts up to 25' and 8,500 lbs

Watch as the animation morphs into an actual shuttle installed by IntelliFinishing. This liquid coating system handles very large parts weighing in at up to 8,500 lbs. and lengths up to 25 feet. 

The shuttle allowed this customer to:

  • reduce floor space usage from 40,400 sq. ft. to 17,400 sq. ft. – a 43% reduction
  • construct a smaller building
