Overhead Conveyors

Overhead conveyors are a type of material handling equipment that use a track or rail system mounted overhead to transport goods and products through a production facility or warehouse. They are commonly used in industries such as automotive, apparel, and electronics to move materials such as parts, garments, and electronics components.

Overhead conveyors consist of a track or rail system that is suspended from the ceiling or structure above the production area, with trolleys or carriers that move along the track to transport the material. The trolleys or carriers can be designed to hold different types of materials, such as hangers, baskets, or trays, and can be customized to accommodate specific application requirements.

Overhead conveyors can be configured in various ways to suit different applications. They can be designed to operate in a straight line or a curved path, and can be equipped with different types of switches, curves, and inclines to accommodate different production layouts. They can also be customized with different types of drives and controls, such as variable speed drives or programmable logic controllers, to meet specific production needs.

Overhead conveyors offer several advantages over other types of material handling equipment. They are ideal for transporting materials through complex layouts and around obstacles, as they are not restricted by floor space. They also offer a high degree of flexibility and can be easily reconfigured or expanded as production needs change.
