Occasionally, a machine style simply is better suited on a linear transfer as compared to a dial or carrousel. Although conveyor systems can provide linear transfer, it usually requires a pallet which then needs to be returned to the start of the line. A walking beam or hitch feed type machine allows for the product to be placed on one end and removed on the opposite end with open access to both sides for processing while occupying a small footprint. These are just two examples of unique material handling devices that can solve a variety of manufacturing challenges. Let us explore your challenge.
