Trolleys, conveyors and flow-racks can be a great time saving technique and increase safety in the workplace.
The D30 Lean Production System delivers cost efficiency and flexibility of design with its 30mm round tubing and range of connectors. The German-engineered fasteners and conveyors are strong and easy to assemble.
Modifications on-the-go are very achievable due to versatile connectors and no minimum quantities to buy.
Assembly can, in most cases, be done without the need for a second set of hands. The simple set of products means that the end user can be in complete control of the design, construction and any future modifications.
The tubes are anodised aluminium, significantly lighter than steel
The only tool required is a 5mm Hex Key once the tubes are cut to size, which can be done with a regular hacksaw, or similar. Precision cuts are not required as the tube can be cut up to 5mm short without affecting the holding force of the fastener.

The conveyors can also be assembled with little to no machining required
T-slot nuts and screws are all that’s needed in most cases. Two different conveyor types are available, Conveyor Rail Al with interchangeable inserts and the Conveyor St with simple, time-efficient design.

Design and assembly advice are readily available
Send a sketch via email and we can help you finalise your design and send you a quote. In many cases, it is possible to bulk buy and process on site, however we can create a flat-pack ready for you to assemble if that will be a more convenient option.
