Overhead Conveyor and Monorail Conveyor Systems

Built to follow a path where the conveying means and load handling take place over of work areas, overhead conveyor systems allow warehouses and manufacturing plants to maximize the working space available to them by freeing up vital floor space. The enclosed, inverted, and I-beam monorail conveyor tracks can follow almost any path needed with their ability to change both vertical and horizontal direction and are designed for ease of installation and modification.

Overhead Conveyor Features:
Multiple track sizes
Flexible mounting systems
Economical with minimal maintenance
Heavy duty tracks for large load capacities
Safe-rail solutions reduce product damage and minimize wasted space
Manual and gravity fed carriers

Paintline™ Inverted Monorail Conveyor

Combines a reliable, clean conveyor operation with the vertical flexibility from its unique design of inverted pendants. The enclosed track system helps prevent contaminants from reaching the chain. This is especially important in the conveyance of any paint or chemicals which could potentially create build up. The inverted pendants allow for 30° rotation as well.

3" and 4" I-Beam Monorail Conveyors by Richard-Wilcox

Available in 3-inch or 4-inch options, this overhead monorail track conveyor offers heavy duty capacity and the ability to tackle tough jobs. The tracks are made from high strength carbon steel and the 3" option can handle up to 400 lbs of load, while the 4" can handle up to 800 lbs of load. The I-Beam monorail track is an open conveyor system where the chain rides along the I-Beam. It is durable and creates usable floor space for logistics challenges.

Twin-Trak® Side by Side Conveyor by Richards-Wilcox

Builds on the foundation of the overhead systems.  It combines power and free capability with its side-by-side track configuration. The Twin-Trak™ can be built from pre-existing Richards-Wilcox systems such as the SafeRail™ monorail and the Zig-Zag™ chain system. Once one of those is in place, standard in-stock parts can be added to create the Twin-Trak™ power and free system.
