Controls Production Rates
Over-Way optimizes production by ensuring that the right parts arrive at the correct operation in a continuous flow, especially when rates of production differ between operations.

Maintains Quality
Over-Way eliminates needless product rehandling and manual transporting by accomplishing finishing and/or assembly processes with a single material handling system.

Boosts Efficiency
Over-Way maintains a traveling record of work-in-progress, logging information on where product has been and where defects may have occurred.

Creates Usable Space
Over-Way frees up valuable floor space for more value-added operations by organizing product flow and efficiently utilizing available space overhead.

Protects Product and Parts
Over-Way uses an enclosed track that prevents contaminants from falling onto the product. It also protects the chain from dirt, abrasives and solvents, prolonging chain life.
