Press release date: April 3, 2014

Schloss Holte-Stukenbrock, Germany – In the 20 years since the invention of RoundTracks®, STROTHMANN Machines & Handling has delivered 116.975 meters of the intra-logistics rail system, the equivalent of about 6,500 truck and trailer lengths. Originally developed for easy press die change, the solution is now used in various industries, for instance, to convey wind turbine generators, transformers that weigh several tons, and various kinds of machines. In contrast to other rail systems, RoundTracks® are not mounted on the floor but embedded, allowing for the passage of small wheel pallet trucks, cleaning machines, etc. Further advantages include minimal rolling resistance which results in a very low power demand. The modular system comprises floor rails in three sizes with a range of crossings, standard and customized trolleys, and drive technologies such as STROTHMANN's proprietary intermittent drive system or direct drives integrated in RoundTrack® carts. The RoundTrack® system prevails over overhead cranes or forklift trucks as a solution for establishing transparent, efficient, and safe production flow.

Figure: Since 1994, STROTHMANN has installed and supplied 117 kilometers of RoundTracks® and implemented various trolleys and drive technologies
