Efficient Intra-Logistics Solution for Heavy Goods: RoundTrack® 60 Supports Bigger Loads per Wheel
Press release date: April 17, 2014
Schloss Holte-Stukenbrock, Germany — The intra-logistics expert STROTHMANN Machines & Handling expands its RoundTrack® program, adding a new, larger system with a 60 mm rail diameter. Manufacturers from various industry sectors had requested such a solution for the transportation of heavy loads. RoundTrack® 60 carries up to 15 tons per wheel. A trolley with four double-wheel sets can therefore move loads up to 120 tons. As with the existing RoundTrack® 25 and 40 sizes, the rails vanish almost completely in the shop floor and can easily be crossed with small wheel pallet trucks. STROTHMANN does not only offer the system components but also plans and implements entire flow production lines on their basis. Featuring transport trolleys that can be pushed or driven with little energy and which simultaneously serve as mobile work stations, the RoundTrack® system has many advantages over pallet trucks or overhead cranes. Completed projects include transport solutions for aircraft stabilizers, pipeline pipes, and various kinds of machines.
