Change of direction
The module of the RoundTrack® systems are designed so that the trolley or carriage can reach any required position at the site by means of junction elements, four-way points or rotary plates. Manual or automated rotary and lifting equipment facilitate easy changes of direction.
The junction element facilitates changes of direction in combination with our patented cross-shaped chassis. The junction element is installed together with the RoundTrack®.
The RoundTrack® junction comprises 4 individual rotation units; the cassettes in the car are pivot mounted. A passive four-way switch is switched using a knee lever that is installed in the car. In the case of active four-way switches, the direction is changed by means of pneumatic four-way switches in the floor.
The rotary plates are designed and manufactured to customer specifications in the required gauge. The rotary plate mounted flush into the floor can be controlled manually or by means of a drive (automatically). The entire drive is turned on the rotary plate so that the trolley or carriage can change direction.
