Customised cart design and mounting fixtures

CustomTrack carts are fully adapted to your requirements thanks to a tailored cart and layout design. In particular the direction change systems increase the flexibility of the transport process. There are four different types of chassis available for the change of direction.

  • customised cart design and mounting fixtures
  • integrated direction change technology in the carts
  • highly flexible layout design
  • highly precise positioning thanks to centring function

Overview individual carts

CustomTrack: manual transport systems
Cross-type chassis

Cross-type chassis

A dolly with a cross-type chassis is equipped with an additional chassis with cassettes. Compressed air cushions extend the additional chassis to permit transverse movement in crossing situations. In total, the dolly is lifted by approx. 20 mm. An external compressed air supply is required on the crossings or intake stations for this additional function. Primary use: many carts, few crossings. Advantage: the integrated lifting function is easy to expand into a transfer step for transport tasks.

Quadro-chassis

Quadro-chassis

A dolly on the RoundTrack system makes it possible to manually push the component from one work area to the next. A dolly with a Quadro chassis has cassettes that can rotate in the dolly. A central lever or a single wheel pivot lever is used to make the switch. Primary use: many carts and many crossings. Advantages: extremely flat design and no external energy required for changing direction.

Flex-chassis

Flex-chassis

A dolly with a Flex chassis is equipped with an additional chassis like the cross-chassis dolly, however this chassis has fixed castors instead of cassettes. This separates the dolly from the rail, making it suitable to be used, for instance, in a simple empty dolly return concept. Advantage: makes flexible return of empty cart possible.

Customised transport carts

Customised transport carts

Let us develop the perfect cart for you: from consultation through design to production. The carts are customised for your processes and the transported products. Flexible factors include the cart design, load accommodation, track gauge and direction change technology. Various direction changing systems permit even complex travel paths.

Moving heavy loads with Mover

Your CustomTrack cart can also be equipped with lifting tables, rotary devices and many other accessories. One of these equipment options is the MoviMax: This moving system allows a single person to move weights of up to 25 t. Pushing and pulling transport is possible. The MoviMax is an economic alternative to fixed or automatic drives. We would be glad to help you find ideas for your CustomTrack.

Optional change of direction

Crossing elements (90°)

Cross chassis in the cart or turning stations integrated in the floor allow the transport carts to change direction easily. This makes it possible to reach any position on the job site. The cross chassis enables a change of direction in combination with crossing elements. The crossing element is installed together with the RoundTrack. Preferred use: few carts and many crossings.

Quadro turnstile (90°)

The RoundTrack crossing consists of four individual turning units. The cassettes in the cart are swivel-mounted. With a passive quadruple switch, the changeover is achieved by a knee lever. In the case of the active quadro switch, the change of direction is effected by pneumatically driven quadro switches in the floor. Preferred use: many carts with few crossings, without inclines and without orientation changes.

Turning station (0-360°)

The turning stations are manufactured individually according to the track width and cart size. The floor level turning stations can be turned manually or by automatic drive, as a result the orientation of the product is also changed. Preferred use: many carts, few crossings on inclined tracks or when changing orientation.
