Every year around this time, North America hosts the largest metal forming, fabrication, welding and finishing event of the year – FABTECH! We’ve been exhibiting at FABTECH for 8 years, each year is bigger and better then before. The exhibition welcomes over 1,500 exhibitors and 40,000 attendees. One of the biggest highlights are the 100 educational sessions and expert-led presentations during the event. This year we have the pleasure to introduce a new product at the show, the Unibilt Inverted Three-Rail (ITR) Conveyor.

The inverted monorail conveyor features three rails, which significantly improves stability when navigating horizontal turns and vertical curves, as well as load capacity and cleanliness. On vertical curves, ITR moves similar to an escalator tread, ensuring that the load remains level.  ITR’s three-point, wide stance provides a stable platform to support large, tall loads enabling it to easily negotiate horizontal turns and vertical curves. The new conveyor can transport loads up to 1,000 pounds, which is 9 times greater than other enclosed track monorail solutions.  ITR is a cost-effective conveyor for paint finishing and assembly applications, as well as any operation that requires the stable movement of materials in an inverted configuration.

Jervis B. Webb Company will be in booth S4939 at the Fabtech Show this week.  For nearly a century, Jervis B. Webb Company has designed, manufactured, installed and serviced high-quality chain conveyor systems for thousands of customers around the world.
