Twin-Track

Twin-Trak conveyors combine power and free capability with a side-by-side track configuration. Twin-Trak offers the ideal medium- to high-capacity solution where limited overhead space is available for product storage and transportation.

Twin-Trak can be built from pre-existing systems, such as Safe-Rail and Zig-Zag. 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 and free system. Twin-Trak is available with a variety of state-of-the-art control components, ranging from simple PLC-based controls to complex PC-based routing and tracking systems.

BENEFITS

Optimizes Low Headroom
Because of its side-by-side configuration, Twin-Trak can be installed in facilities having insufficient headroom for other power and free equipment.

Increases Throughput
With controlled accumulation, Twin-Trak eliminates the typical wait time associated with storage banks.

Utilizes Space Efficiently
Twin-Trak minimizes floor space requirements by storing work-in-progress overhead, calling it down in the quantity and order needed at each operation.

Controls Production Rates
Twin-Trak optimizes production by ensuring that the right parts arrive at the correct operation in a continuous flow, especially when rates of production differ between operations.

Maintains Quality
Twin-Trak eliminates product rehandling and manual transporting by integrating finishing and assembly processes into one material handling system.

Boosts Efficiency
Twin-Trak maintains a traveling record of work-in-progress, logging information on where product has been and where defects may have occurred.
