What are the advantages of overhead conveyors compared to other conveyor technologies?2023-11-10T11:33:26+01:00

Suspended conveyor technology enables optimum space utilization and free floor space by using the vertical space above the work areas and transport routes. Overhead conveyors also transport sensitive products gently and protect them from damage and soiling. At the same time, large quantities of goods can be transported effortlessly from A to B with overhead conveyor technology. In addition, an automated overhead conveyor system delivers the required goods to the dispatch or production stations automatically, at the right time and in the right sequence. Long search and travel times are eliminated.

These advantages make suspended conveyor technology an attractive solution for intralogistics in warehouses, production facilities and distribution centers.

What is overhead conveyor technology?2024-02-16T14:35:51+01:00

What is overhead conveyor technology? Overhead conveyor technology, also known as overhead conveyors, moves goods along a rail in warehouses or production facilities. With a guided rail system, it ensures efficient intralogistics material transportation. Schoenenberger Systeme has been planning, developing and installing customized suspended conveyor technology solutions for customers worldwide for over 45 years.
