Transfer cars are used for supplying and emptying spurs, for picking stations and pallet stations and for connecting conveying sections arranged offset from one another. The basic design consists of a welded frame with an integrated chassis. Travelling movement is achieved essentially by means of direct-driven wheels or toothed belts. When driven by toothed belts, the motor can be arranged either stationary or travelling on the car. Directional stability is ensured by adjustable guide rollers on the sides. The Vulkollan wheels have very smooth-running and shock-absorbing characteristics. It is possible to mount a variety of components on top for transferring and forwarding the material for transport, such as chain conveyors, roller beds or telescopic tables.
