Towline conveyors

  • Posted by Ed Brundrett

A towline conveyor is a transportation device that runs along the ground and is used widely in the automotive and manufacturing industries.

The conveyor can either be mounted on the floor or, should a flush floor be required, it can be mounted within a pit using floor plates to cover the gap. Towline conveyors can be engineered to utilise bi-planar chain, precision chain or drop forged chain depending on the weight being towed.

Towline Conveyor Circuit Design

Towline conveyor circuit design can be tailored to fit factory needs so it can either run in a single straight line or in a loop. Depending on the process required, the operation can be continuously slow moving or it can be indexing (stop/start).

A trolley can be designed to transport a variety of components and the system can transport any weight from light plastic parts to 12 tonne earth moving vehicles.
