Overhead Conveyors

Hjort Conveyor ab from Cobalt


Cobalt Projects is the UK distributor for the Swedish overhead conveyor manufacturer, Hjort- Conveyor AB. Hjort Conveyor has been manufacturing and installing materials handling equipment such as manual track systems, simple overhead conveyors, power & free floor conveyors and cranes since 1962. The products are modular and can be adapted to any production requirement and are designed primarily for the Finishing Industry.

These products are available to the Paint & Powder Service Industry in the UK through Cobalt Projects at very competitive trade prices either as complete systems or in component form.

Hjort-Conveyor AB is represented in thirteen European countries and is a member of the Linde Group which currently employs 60 people.

With a reputation that stands for long-term cooperation and partnership, Cobalt Projects has in Hjort a reliable partner. By joining forces we deliver bespoke, highly efficient and safe integrated overhead conveyors systems. In particular these excellent systems can function effectively in the paint and powder coatings manufacturing environment without succumbing to stress or fatigue in the high temperatures common in that production process.

Together, Hjort and Cobalt can provide a full range of systems with everything from lightweight cranes, manual conveyors, overhead conveyors and floor conveyors to power & free conveyors for loads up to 2,000 kg.


  • Lightweight Crane System- Up to 1,000 Kg Load Capacity

    The Hjort range of lightweight crane systems are built-up of standard track based on cold rolled C-sections.

    3 sizes of track are available – Series 500, 400 and 400F - The size of the strengthening stiffeners type IPE is determined by the weight of the load being carried and the distance / span between each track support upright.

    The crane structures are available in both manual and powered versions.

    The system can be suspended from the roof or the walls of the building which reduces the overall height of the installation. Alternatively the structure can be floor mounted.

  • Series 400 – Manual Track System- 1000 Kg Load Capacity

    The Series 400 manual track system is for very heavy loads.

    The system can be built up using switches, turntables and separate drive chains through, for example, ovens.

    Due to the weights involved ergonomically correct loading and unloading is essential using height adjustable stations designed and manufactured to suit each application

  • Series 500 – Manual Track System - 500 Kg Load Capacity

    Hjort-conveyor series 500 is a track system for manual transfer of load carriers.

    The system can be built up using switches, turntables and separate drive chains to handle difference in height and for transport through, for example, ovens.

    Due to the weights involved, ergonomically correct loading and unloading is essential using height adjustable stations designed and manufactured to suit each application

  • Series 1000 – 3 Styles Of Chain - 250 Kg Single Pendant Load Capacity

    Series 1000 overhead chain conveyor is a closed system with a cardan chain running inside a steel rail. Loads hang directly from the suspension points on the chain.

    The conveyor is normally suspended from the building roof structure or floor-stands, the conveyor is available with automatic loading and unloading, for example by industrial robots.

    The drive unit can be supplied with frequency controlled speed regulation, thus allowing the speed to be varied to suit various products or production times.

    The overhead chain conveyor 1000 Series has many applications, for example, surface treatment plants, “living stores”, and for long internal transports.

  • Series 1200 – 1 Style Of Chain – 50Kg Single Pendant Load Capacity

    The cardan chain for the overhead chain conveyor 1000 Series is equipped with guide and load rollers of hardened steel running on ball bearings.

    The standard version of the chain is lubricated for a working temperature of 250°C.

    The guide and load rollers are also available in plastic with moulded-in ball bearings.

    For loads from 125 to 250 kg the cardan chain must be equipped with load bars.

  • Series 2400 – Load capacity 1,200KG

    Series 2400 is a system for heavy loads where extensive versatility is required.

    The system permits buffering and addressable carriers.

    Effective and ergonomically correct loading and unloading using drop sections.

  • Series 2700 – Load capacity – 75Kg

    Series 2700 is a system for light loads where extensive versatility is required.

    The system permits buffering and addressable carriers.

    Effective and ergonomically correct loading and unloading using drop sections.




  • Series 3000 – 250 Kg Load Capacity

    Series 3000 has a double track where the chain runs in the upper track and the trolleys in the lower track. The system can be designed with switches for spurs.

    Effective and ergonomically correct loading and unloading using drop sections.

    Series 3000 can easily be combined with the manual track system series 500.

  • Series 3300 – 800 Kg Load Capacity

    Series 3300 is a system for medium-weight loads where extensive versatility is required.

    Series 3300 features double tracks where the chain runs in the upper track and the trolleys in the lower track.

    The system permits buffering and addressable carriers.

    Effective and ergonomically correct loading and unloading using drop sections.

  • Series 3500 –2,000 Kg Load Capacity

    Hjort-conveyor overhead chain conveyor series 3500 is a system for heavy loads where extensive versatility is required. Series 3500 features double tracks where the chain runs in the upper track and the trolleys in the lower track.

    The system permits buffering and addressable carriers. Effective and ergonomically correct loading and unloading using drop sections
