Trakmaster Free Track Series
Here at Midland Handling Equipment, we provide a wide variety of different free track conveyor belts and systems. Our range consists of 3 different types of Trakmaster Series along with various carriers, components and steelwork to create a bespoke system for your company. Having a Free Track in your factory or warehouse is an excellent low-cost solution to any handling problems. It basically consists of a trolley style carrier running through a track section powered either by gravity or hand. Our range of carriers varies from manual rotators, indexers and sprocket rotators, and can be applied to trolleys or load bars.
Free Track conveyors are versatile in what they can hold for example the Trackmaster 152FT consists of a 37.5kg capacity with a four-wheel trolley above hooks to hang various object and materials. Hanging products means there’s extra floor space and room for moving material. Along with the hook application, we also provide different carriers to suit different load types making our systems even more versatile. For even more flexibility we provide Free Track systems with eight-wheeled trolleys, like our Trackmaster 406FT.
