Transfer Car Conveyors & Equipment
Industrial Kinetics is a leader in the development and application of transfer conveyor systems. Transfer cars are used to divert or merge unit loads between multiple lanes. Common applications include delivering loads to workstations, transferring loads from multiple palletizers to a common stretchwrapper, and layer pick operations. The use of transfer cars as compared to conventional conveyor and transfers reduces the amount of equipment required, reducing the initial investment and maintenance costs.
Transfer Car Traversing Decks
IK transfer cars have been manufactured with the following options:
- Single deck
- Double deck – two wide or two deep
- Quad deck – two wide by two deep
- On board pallet dispenser plus two load positions
- Parasitic drive for slave driven spurs – available on multiple configurations
- On board lift to address multiple receiving and delivery levels
IK transfer cars conveying decks can be any viable conveyor type. This commonly includes roller conveyor, belt conveyor, and chain conveyor.
Many workstation applications or gantry palletizing operations can use parasitically driven spurs for the workstation or palletizing conveyor. This eliminates the distributed drives on the workstation conveyor saving the cost of control and wiring which reduces the initial investment, energy costs, and ongoing maintenance costs.
