Traversing carriages with chain conveyors


Traversing carriages are used to move containers to more than one of different conveyor sections. The conveyor tracks are on the same level. They can be either fully self-propelled or pulled by toothed belts.

The drive is located directly on top of the traversing carriage. A frequency-controlled drive engine directly turns the shaft. Power supply is provided via an energy chain or a conductor line. Upon request, one or two chain container conveyors are mounted on the carriage unit. Special noise-reduced wheels provide smooth running. If required, the tracks can be installed in the floor and either one or two chain conveyors can be mounted on the carriage.

All pull-in points are safeguarded according to the European Machinery Directive as well as all other applicable European norms and standards.
