“Bob Transfer/Shuttle” is a patented system to efficiently move and manage material loads without contact between pallets or containers on the conveying line. The system handles larger loads than traditional belt or roller conveyors, reduces maintenance costs, and prevents damage to the end users product.
The basis of the “Transfer/Shuttle” conveying system is the “Transfer/Shuttle” Cart. The Cart rides on tracks and physically lifts the pallet or container off the support rails, moves it to the destination point, and then gently sets the cargo back on the support rails. The Cart is equipped with sensors and controls that allow it to “think” for itself, find pallets or containers, and move them to an appropriate location.
“Transfer/Shuttle” can move damaged pallets and containers easily; much improved over other conveyor types.
