Overhead conveyor provides flexible handling with a clear floor.
AEC is a proven leader in engineering automated overhead conveyor systems. An overhead conveyor – or inverted conveyor – is an elevated system. It’s similar to a floor-level conveyor but used to transport product above your facility floor. Overhead conveyor is driven by a chain and utilizes trolleys – the units that hold products/items. Trolleys are generally rings or hooks which can hold a considerable amount of weight depending upon your application. This type of conveyor is especially useful in applications requiring sharp bends or traveling through several floor levels.
