The integrated rail system increases safety
Since traditional forklifts and stacker cranes are free to move about as they like, they can sometimes venture into areas that they are not supposed to be in or that are dangerous. This can cause accidents as well as potential damages to your warehouse’s assets. However, since the HUBMASTER® cannot leave its rail track within the racks it can help to prevent accidents and potential damages to assets.
The HUBMASTER® is an integrated storage and handling solution. It is an overhead stacker crane that runs on top of a rack mounted rail track. This allows for increased stability in loading and unloading as well as safety since the HUBMASTER® runs along a fixed system and is an integrated part of the racking system. This overhead suspension means that the HUBMASTER® cannot tip or overturn.
Another useful feature of the HUBMASTER® is that its rail system can be retrofitted onto almost any type of existing rack. It is installed with maximum stiffness for smooth bridge travel and safety. There are also features on the HUBMASTER® designed to avoid derailment such as double-flanged wheels with precision sealed bearings.
The HUBMASTER’s fixed rail system means that it cannot leave the racks and cannot cause accidents to assets in other parts of the warehouse. This makes the HUBMASTER® the safer and more efficient storage handling solution.
