Therma-Tron-X (TTX) offers the ACC® -- an overhead conveyance system that consists of carriers that provide reliable and consistent point-to-point movement of everything from small parts to heavy parts.

The system features battery powered, individually programmed vehicles that run wirelessly on simple I-Beam without chain.

This system incorporates a wireless ethernet network that will send instructions to each ACC® via access points.

The carrier is mounted to an I-Beam in much the same way as a traditional overhead carrier. These carriers are propelled along the I-Beam using a spring-loaded traction drive wheel. The I-beam and carrier drive are sized accordingly by weight and capacities range from 10 lbs. to 12,000 lbs.

Overhead conveyance in a facility can be thought of as modular and scalable in concept allowing for production volumes to be easily adapted for all scenarios.

The autonomous nature of the vehicles, enables demand-oriented process times instead of fixed-cycle times, even allowing different applications and quality requirements to be realized for different part profiles.
