Unlimited Power for Limited Spaces

Richards-Wilcox Twin-Trak Conveyors combine power & 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 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 & 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 1,000 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 pounds

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-process 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-process, logging information on where product has been and where defects may have occurred.
