Zig - Zag

Developed In 1938, Zig-Zag is labeled as the original enclosed track conveyor. Zig-Zag still sets the industry standard for effective material handling equipment.

Using standard modular components constructed for long life, Zig-Zag conveyors solve a variety of manufacturing problems. From simple, in-line finishing systems to complex storage and retrieval systems, Zig-Zag is an efficient and economical solution.

Protects Product and Parts
Zig-Zag's enclosed track protects product from contamination that typically falls from open chain conveyors. Zig-Zag also protects the chain from airborne dirt, abrasives and solvents, prolonging chain life.

Simplifies Installation and Maintenance
Zig-Zag is constructed of standard, modular components that guarantee easy installation, modification and maintenance. Standard components also guarantee quick accessibility through local stocking distributors.

Increases Throughput
With its 6" pitch, Zig-Zag provides 33% more hanging points than competitive products. The result is a reduction in the size of corresponding process equipment.

Maximizes Floor Space
Zig-Zag's standard 1'-6"R horizontal and 2'-0"R vertical curves can make tight changes in direction and elevation, freeing up valuable floor space for other assembly and storage operations.

Facilitates Upgrades
Zig-Zag was designed to meet manufacturer's changing needs. As a result, it is the only overhead chain conveyor that can be upgraded to a power and free system utilizing all existing components.

Reduces Product Damage
Zig-Zag conveyors can transport product anywhere, in return, product handling and damage are kept to a minimum
