Therma-Tron-X’s Automated Conveyor Carrier (ACC) material-handling systems incorporates a wireless network to send instructions to carriers throughout a paint line, providing point-to-point movement for parts ranging from small to heavy. Carriers are hung on an overhead I-beam and propelled using an adjustable friction drive wheel. The system can easily stop, increase speed or decrease speed at different locations.

According to TTX, the ACC is much cleaner and quieter than traditional conveyors, and is muti-directional.
