Car Progression System
Brochures and Whitepapers
Remote control devices operating in a partially enclosed buried track are used to progress one or many cars. It avoids many of the obvious hazards associated with the usual exposed tag line car pullers. At the same time, it allows for the design of partially or fully automated systems.
The load advancing robot arm can contact the car axle, coupler, car end frame, journal box or other point consistent to the cars being progressed. It can also be used to move trucks only to and from a truck repair area.
Unique designs are available to remotely raise or lower the robot arm. Also available are styles that "capture" the truck assembly to maintain control throughout its travel.
