MechRail Rail Systems

The Mechrail is a specialized rail system that encompasses a variety of propulsion options, including manual and motorized units, to accommodate different industrial needs. Designed for versatility, the Mechrail system features a large selection of trolleys, which allows for the seamless creation of custom systems, complete with extensions and a wide range of accessories. The system’s high-performance trolleys ensure that even the most sensitive loads can be transported quickly and smoothly, with repeated precision. For facilities lacking roof support, the Mechrail can be integrated into existing ceiling frameworks or paired with custom-designed floor-mounted structures, ensuring adaptability across any working environment.
