FAQ

How is IntelliTrak lower cost?
Being a bolt together system, it cost much less to install our systems than standard chain systems. Installed, ours typically cost about 30% less.

How is IntelliTrak lower maintenance?
Since our systems use a rotating tube instead of a chain to drive the system, we eliminate the maintenance associate with chain - plus the fact that all the moving components in our system are lubed for life makes our system practically maintenance free.

How is IntelliTrak modular?
Our systems are bolted together instead of welded. This makes installation and modification of our systems easy and quick.

How is IntelliTrak inherently safer?
Our trolleys are friction driven by the rotating tube. This allows the trolleys to slip on the tube should the trolleys catch on something or someone.

How is IntelliTrak cleaner?
Since our systems use a rotating tube instead of a chain to drive the system, we eliminate the mess associate with chain. This gets rid of product contamination associated with debris falling from chain systems.

How is IntelliTrak quieter?
Since our systems use a rotating tube instead of a chain to drive the system, we eliminate the metal on metal noise caused by chain being drug through the track and the clanking of dogs being engaged and disengaged.

Does IntelliTrak have capabilities beyond conveyor manufacturing?
IntelliTrak is more than just Overhead Conveyors. Our Engineering and Project Management capabilities allow us to provide complete turnkey solutions incorporating IntelliTrak Overhead Conveyors along with other third party equipment.
