With the release of The Amazing Spider-Man, QC Industries is celebrating a new role for its conveyors: movie stars. The company, located in Cincinnati, Ohio, was chosen to provide low profile conveyors for several of the lab scenes in the movie.
When you see the movie, keep your eyes out for the AS40 Automation Series Conveyors. They’re used to move vials inside the spider nursery that are then transferred using robots built by FANUC Robotics.
Rather than building his own futuristic, high-tech conveyors, art director Page Buckner said he decided to use QC Industries’ aluminum extruded AS40 conveyors because they helped “ground viewers to reality” by showing something that looks “familiar and real” while still providing the high-tech look the scenes required.
QC turned to their long-time partners Habasit America and Oriental Motor to provide the belts and motors, respectively, that appeared on the conveyors in the film.
