TYPE: Overhead Conveyor and Monorail Conveyor Systems

MODEL: Twin-Trak™ Side by Side Conveyor

Side by side overhead conveyor for medium to high capacity applications.

The Twin-Trak™Side by Side Conveyor brings unlimited power to limited spaces; with its side by side configuration. it provides a space saving, dual track system ideal for medium to high capacity needs with limited overhead space.

Features

  • Eleven Standard Zig-Zag Components
    Twin-Trak™ uses the same standard components as Richards Wilcox chain conveyors.
  • Eight Standard Safe-Rail Components
    Twin-Trak™ uses the same standard components as Richards Wilcox standard monorails.
  • Easy Switching
    You can switch into and out of the main line at a greater frequency (at closer load centers) than other power and free design systems.
  • Capacities
    Twin-Trak™ combines a 3/16” plate steel load track with carrier handling up to 1,000 lbs. 
  • Cutting Edge Controls
    The Twin-Trak™ allows simple PLC based controls to complex PC based routing and tracking systems.
  • Made in the U.S.A.

Benefits

  • It can be built from pre-existing Richards-Wilcox systems, such as Safe-Rail and Zig-Zag, saving you valuable resources. Once a Safe-Rail monorail or a Zig-Zag chain conveyor system is in place, standard in-stock parts can be added to create a Twin-Trak™ power & free conveyor system.
  • It optimizes headroom in facilities with limited space;
    This frees up space for other power and free equipment.
  • Twin-Trak™ eliminates the typical wait time associated with storage banks, increasing throughput.
  • The Twin-Trak™ uses minimal floor space;
    By storing work-in-process overhead, calling it down in the quantity and order needed at each operation, the Twin-Trak™ uses minimal floor space, saving you valued square footage.
  • The system optimizes production;
    The Twin-Trak™ ensures that the right parts arrive at the correct operation in a continuous flow, especially when rates of production differ between operations.
  • Twin-Trak™ eliminates product re-handling and manual transporting by integrating finishing and assembly processes into one material handling system. 
  • Twin-Trak™ boosts efficiency;
    It maintains a traveling record of each work-in-process, recording where the product has been and detecting where defects may have occurred.

Typical Applications

  • Paint finishing systems
  • Investment Cast Mold Delivery
  • Extrusion Finishing
  • Progressive Assembly
  • WIP Buffer Storage
  • Comber Lap Delivery
  • Sliver Can Delivery
  • Aerospace Refinishing
  • Fiber Delivery
