Some components require specialized processes to transport them through a manufacturing environment. A hitch feed can grip materials and pass them through an automated device, whereas a walking beam can lift and carry a component—or a tray of components along a track in a spaced and indexed fashion.

We have used hitch feeds and walking beams in specialized scenarios to accomplish automation tasks that would not be possible using other automation methods. We take pride in knowing when to use each of our automation technologies to achieve the best outcomes.

The timing and spacing of walking beams make it possible for us to incorporate tracking and quality control technology into this stage of the automation. Contact us about your automation requirements and we can review your project to determine the best solution.
