In production areas with automated loading and unloading of oily and sharp-edged production parts, a clean process is doubly important. An oil collection pan prevents dirt and dangers.

Do oily production parts drip on the floor and get the workplace dirty? Do they even make it dangerous because it’s slippery? Dirt and dangers are all around in production environments where oily and sharp-edged production parts must be loaded and unloaded. Luckily, Montech AG has a simple solution. This Swiss technology company specializes in the industrialization and standardization of state-of-the-art, unusual belt conveyors, transfer systems, and innovative aluminum framing systems. 

Integrated and space-saving solution

On the one hand, Montech’s standard product range offers belt types that are oil- and cut-resistant. On the other hand, an oil collection plan catches the dripping oil reliably. Montech makes its oil pans of stainless steel depending on individual requirements. The design is attractive and functional, the quality stable and long-lasting. In order to incorporate the oil collection, pan optimally into the production process, it is integrated into the floor supports directly below the belt conveyor. This way, they don’t take up much space and are only used when necessary. The hole in the pan bottom lets the oil drain directly. The hole is milled customer-specifically for an optimized, clean work process. 

Roles for still greater flexibility

On request, Montech will equip the floor supports with rollers. This creates additional flexibility: The rollers make the belt conveyor with oil collection pan mobile. If, for example, it is necessary to do maintenance work, the complete conveyor unit can be rolled easily away from the processing machine. And the rollers provide another advantage: They enable easy access to the processing machines. As a universal unit, the belt conveyor with oil collection pan can be used on several or different machines if you wish.
