Farmington Hills, Michigan—Jervis B. Webb Company—a subsidiary of Daifuku North America Holding Company—will introduce its new Unibilt Inverted Three-Rail (ITR) conveyor at the 2015 Fabtech Show in Chicago, this November. The inverted monorail conveyor features three rails, which significantly improves stability when navigating horizontal turns and vertical curves, as well as load capacity and cleanliness.

On vertical curves, ITR moves similar to an escalator tread, ensuring that the load remains level. ITR’s three-point, wide stance provides a stable platform to support large, tall loads enabling it to easily negotiate horizontal turns and vertical curves.

The new conveyor can transport loads up to 1,000 pounds, which is nine times greater than other enclosed track monorail solutions. ITR is a cost-effective conveyor for paint finishing and assembly applications, as well as any operation that requires the stable movement of materials in an inverted configuration.
