IntelliTrak 1500 Series System

The IntelliTrak 1500 Series Overhead Conveyor is the workhorse of our overhead conveyor family. With a capacity of up to 1500** lbs. in single trolley applications and 3,000** lbs. in dual trolley applications, the 1500 Series will meet most Overhead Conveyor needs.

With standard components, the 1500 Series Overhead conveyor is capable of operating temperatures of up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. With modifications, temperatures of up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit are possible.

** Live Load and Dead Load capacities using standard components. With modifications and added components, capacity can be increased to 6,000 lbs.

The 1500 Series Overhead Conveyor uses Carriers that are moved automatically between different areas using Trolleys. The driven sections of the system consists of Trolleys that ride on the Load Rail, and a Drive Beam that has a Drive Tube attached to it via Bearing Assemblies. Curves allow for direction change.

The Drive Tube propels the Trolleys via skewed wheels mounted to the trolley which are in turn spring loaded to the Drive Tube.

Reversing the rotation of the Drive Tube reverses the direction of the Trolley. Flow changes are achieved through Switches that transfer the Trolley from one line to another.

Elevation changes can be accommodated with incline and decline sections. In addition, pneumatic lifts can be incorporated for raising and lowering carrier assemblies.

In-line speed changes are achieved using Drive Breaks, which allow separate drive tubes attached to the same drive beam to run at different speeds. Different drive tube speeds can be achieved by incorporating Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) or different ratio gear motors.

A Non-Driven Section (gravity section) is identical to the driven section minus the drive beam/drive tube assembly.

Structural Support

Supporting the IntelliTrak 1500 Series Overhead Conveyor can be accomplished by mounting directly to the ceiling, using existing overhead structures, or utilizing a network of free-standing IntelliTrak support steel.
