Overhead Conveyors are material handling systems mounted from ceilings that use trolleys or carriers moved by chains, cables, or similar connections. Key specifications include the intended application, conveyor type and configuration, control type, and load capacity, as well as the required electrical specifications.
Overhead conveyors are used primarily in material handling applications where the product needs to be hung such as dry-cleaning garment lines, paint lines, or parts handling systems, of for cooling and curing. Various configurations are available including electric track, monorail, trolley, as well as inclined or ramped. Depending on the application, the load carrying capacity may be critical. Most overhead conveyors systems are powered and controlled, while others are hand operated
