The construction, assembly and start up of an EOM engine air conveyor for the new Amarok pick-up truck were made.

Once the engine is completely assembled and it reaches the last post of the double chain conveyor, the EOM air conveyor through a cart and hanging hook takes the engine and automatically moves it to the area in which the engine is joined to the pick-up chassis. In this area, the two conveyors must be perfectly synchronized in speed as well as in position to allow the perfect adjustment of the positioners.

In order to perform this task 5 EOM automatic carts and a loop of approximately 200 meters distance with an area for carts maintenance were built.

The carts were designed to transport and raise an engine of 1,200 kg weight.
