Lean Means of Transportation for Heavy Goods

LOXrail from Losyco enables one-piece flow assembly of medium-weight and heavy-weight machines and products.

With the LOXrail program, German manufacturer Losyco offers a round rail system designed to increase assembly line efficiency for large machine and product manufacturing processes.

"Loads as heavy as several tons can be moved manually or with a small auxiliary drive with much lower energy consumption and much less equipment compared to standard procedures using overhead cranes, SGVs or pallet trucks," said a company spokesperson.

LOXrail is available in two sizes with rail diameters of 25 or 40 mm. Goods loaded on standard or custom-made trolleys are safely transported and accurately positioned. Nominal payloads vary with the number of wheel sets. Even standard trolleys carry payloads of up to 40 tons. In one-piece flow assembly lines, the trolleys serve as mobile workstations. "The floor-level rails never get in the way of employees and are no obstacle for rolling racks, working and cleansing machines, etc.," said the spokesperson. The rail products portfolio includes junctions as well as components to change the direction of the trolley.

"We provide comprehensive and hands-on support to companies seeking to introduce a production line based on lean manufacturing principles," said Managing Director Derek P. Clark. "To this end, Losyco offers additional equipment, such as chain and roller conveyors, to complement the round bar rails. Losyco devises and manufactures customized logistics solutions and helps streamline production processes."
