Overhead rail

Conveyance means for material movements (e.g. casting ladle) with and without branched layout.

The overhead rail conveyors are clear of the floor. There are overhead rails with electrically or pneumatically driven trolleys, but in individual cases also such rails which are moved by being pushed manually. Moreover, a differentiation is made between monorail systems (the guide rail is also the support rail) and double-rail systems with separate support and guide rails.
