Transfer Car

Maximum system throughput over short distances

The transfer car is used for the efficient distribution of pallets in high bay rack aisles, workstations, dispatch areas, etc. By combining several load carriers (e.g. roller conveyor, chain conveyor, mule satellite vehicle), single or double transfer cars can be customized for special requirements. The frequency-controlled drive system allows controlled acceleration, deceleration, and precise positioning. Its quiet operation is an additional benefit.

Thorough implementation of the TGW module concept and the use of tried and tested components linked with this leads to a very high line availability. In addition to this the maintenance and service down times are very low since easy access to the parts that must be maintained is already given full account in the design.
