Alba Manufacturing - Shuttle Cars

Shuttle cars are used in conjunction with our conveying equipment. A typical application utilizes a conveyor deck that is attached to a traveling base. Shuttle cars can be operated with a motor driven drive, pneumatic indexing base or used in a hand-push application. They travel in a straight line along a floor track. Tracks can be mounted above or in the floor, as needed for each application. Conveyor top configurations, electrification, controls, devices and paint finishes are optional items available for shuttle cars.

With travel speeds up to 150 FPM, the shuttle car’s standard features include a welded structural steel base frame, VFD rated brake motor and reducer, single flange-type wheels, and safety bumper switches.

Shuttle cars typically only travel between two or three adjacent conveyor positions and travel is much shorter than that of a transfer car.

Like all Alba standard conveyors our shuttle cars are supplied with a two-year warranty. For easier installation, our units are pre-tested, and ship fully assembled.
