USI Italia gliding carts are made of high-strength steel and are used to move a vehicle sideways from one workstation to another.
The carts move on rails and are used in all repair activities where a pull logic applies: that is, when the performance of a generic process (understood as a sequence of activities, in this case the repair of a vehicle) takes place looking backwards, that is, the performance of the downstream activity dragging the upstream one.
If we consider the fact that the evaporation of water into air requires energy (0.68 kW per litre of evaporated water) we can see that a humidification system represents a viable alternative to expensive air conditioning systems and therefore, is an efficient way to remove excess heat and reducing operating costs; all simply through the use of water.
The working dimensions of each cart are 330 x 552 mm.
A set of 4 carts is required to move the vehicle from one location to another and the number of rails on which these carts will run can vary from 5 to 6, depending on the axial distances of the stationary vehicles.
Following new modifications, a gentle push from the operator is all that is needed to move the vehicle.
A vehicle can be moved using inverted V rails welded onto profiles embedded between the gratings or embedded in the floor, or with overhead rails fixed to the gratings or above the floor.
The first solution, the more conventional option, is generally adopted in new builds when substantial civil engineering work is already planned.
The second solution is preferable if you want amore flexible and faster installation, provided that the floor is completely flat and level.
Gliding carts can be used both in preparation areas and in spray booths, where a pull-type workflow procedure is implemented.
Our USI LIFT 3500 frame hoist can be inserted between the slides.
