Jervis B. Webb Company Introduces New Inverted Three Rail Conveyor at The Fabtech Show

Farmington Hills, Mich. (September 24, 2015)

– Jervis B. Webb Company — a subsidiary of Daifuku North America Holding Company — will introduce its new Unibilt® Inverted Three-Rail (ITR) conveyor at the 2015 Fabtech Show in Chicago, Ill., November 9-12, 2015.  The inverted monorail conveyor features three rails, which significantly improves stability when navigating horizontal turns and vertical curves, as well as load capacity and cleanliness.

“Nearly 100 years ago, Webb revolutionized the conveyor industry with its rivetless chain conveyor that was used by Henry Ford in his early assembly lines,” said Rob Schmit, President of Jervis B. Webb Company.  “We continue to lead the industry in conveyor innovation with our new Unibilt Inverted Three Rail, the most stable conveyor on the market today.”

On vertical curves, ITR moves similar to an escalator tread, ensuring that the load remains level.  ITR’s three-point, wide stance provides a stable platform to support large, tall loads enabling it to easily negotiate horizontal turns and vertical curves.

The new conveyor can transport loads up to 1,000 pounds, which is 9 times greater than other enclosed track monorail solutions.  ITR is a cost-effective conveyor for paint finishing and assembly applications, as well as any operation that requires the stable movement of materials in an inverted configuration.

Jervis B. Webb Company will be in booth S4939 at the Fabtech Show .  For nearly a century, Jervis B. Webb Company has designed, manufactured, installed and serviced high-quality chain conveyor systems for thousands of customers around the world.
