Heavy duty enclosed track acts as a runway for the carriers and accommodates loads up to 1,000 lbs Carriers
are manually pushed or gravity fed along the track and can be navigated through hand operated switches to the
process areas
Used extensively in finishing and assembly lines, high density storage, product staging and ergonomic tool support,
Safe-Rail is a perfect solution for manipulating awkward and difficult parts throughout production
These manual systems are typically found in job shops and OEM's that produce a wide variety of parts in relatively low quantities.

Zig-Zag gets its name from its ability to navigate up, down, around, and through various points in a production
facility or distribution center
In a Zig-Zag system parts, totes, or boxes continuously move along the track at an adjustable speed to fit the
application
Products are suspended by pendants secured to the moving chain Pendants can be 6" apart and are capable of
carrying up to 75 lbs each Parts can be hung from multiple pendants to increase the load capacity
Zig-Zag systems are very simple and economical for upgrading to an automated material handling solution
Zig-Zag is typically used in finishing, assembly, high density storage, product staging, ergonomic tool support, and
for high speed tote/carton delivery and trash removal systems in order fulfillment and distribution centers.
