Heavy and Light-duty belt conveyors for horisontal transport
With 50 years experience in the conveying business Tratec Solutions belt conveyors are developed to a very high standard both with respect to capability and durability.
Shuttle conveyors are framework or channel type belt conveyors mounted on trolleys with wheels which travel on rails. They can be equipped with own drive which gives them ability to move along the rails in both directions. This movement can be fully automated or controlled by an operator. Those conveyors can be built as a reversible belt conveyor which allows to transport material to both conveyor's ends.They are often used for filling bulk material to the storage bins, hopper or silos installed in one row.
