Tow-Line Conveyor

DistribuTek Leaning Center


The tow or tow-line conveyor is used to provide power to wheeled carriers such as trucks, dollies, or carts that move along the floor. Essentially, the tow conveyor provides power for fixed-path travel of carriers that have variable path capability. The towline can be located either overhead, flush with the floor, or in the floor. Towline systems often include selector-pin or pusher-dog arrangements to allow automatic switching between power lines or onto an un-powered spur line for accumulation. Tow conveyors are generally used when long distances and a high frequency of movement are involved. They can be used to transport loads of any shape or size, which is dependent on the carrier used and the available space.
