Twin-Trak Side-by-Side Conveyors

Manufacturer: Richards-Wilcox

Richards-Wilcox Twin-Trak® Side-by-Side Conveyors combine exceptional power and free capabilities with a side-by-side track configuration. No other side-by-side conveyor offers a guaranteed (and consistent) medium-to-high capacity solution in times when limited overhead space is available for continuous product storage and transportation.

Advantages
Can be built from pre-existing Richards-Wilcox 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 Richards-Wilcox parts can be added to create a Twin-Trak power and free system.

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.

Control Systems 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.

Capacities
Twin-Trak® combines a 3/16" plate steel load track with carrier handling up to 1000 lbs. for maximum flexibility.

Switching
Twin-Trak® provides switching into and out of main line of travel in greater frequency (at closer load centers) than other power and free designs.

Capacities
Range from 125 to 1,000 lbs.

Benefits

  • Optimizes low headroom because of its side-by-side configuration.
  • Can be installed in facilities having insufficient headroom for other power and free equipment.
  • Increases throughput with controlled accumulation.
  • Eliminates the typical wait time associated with storage banks.
  • Minimizes floor space requirements by storing work-in-process overhead, calling it down in the quantity and order needed at each operation.
  • 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.
  • Eliminates product rehandling and manual transporting by integrating finishing and assembly processes into one material handling system.
  • Maintains a traveling record of work-in-process, logging information on where the product has been and where defects may have occurred.
