Can you imagine life without the automobile? Few of us can, as the first Model T was completed in Detroit on October 1, 1908. Over a hundred years ago, transportation changed forever.


Out of this change, came a breakthrough in production- forever altering the manufacturing industry. This was the assembly line.


The revolution came from the idea that one person specializing in one task- no matter how minute, when a part of a team, could rapidly and efficiently assemble more items, than if they individually built the item from the ground up. Throughout time this breakthrough lead to some of the first conveyor systems.


Flash forward to today. State of the art conveyor systems are now standard in manufacturing facilities around the world. Here at Orbitform, we strive to keep pushing the advancement further.


Orbitform conveyor systems are able to solve many goals. These advanced systems are able to decrease cycle time by allowing high volume production. Another feature includes part buffering, a queue for machining or assembly. Our engineers have also incorporated forming stations into conveyor lines.
