The electrified monorail system (EMS) has proven its worth in many industrial applications. Whether in the field of logistics for conveying pallets, mesh boxes and load carriers fast and flexibly or for assembly and production tasks – the EMS is appropriate for many applications.

The Eisenmann EMS is a rail-bound conveying system with individually driven and controllable vehicles that move independently on the track system. Branch points can be implemented on the line by means of switches. The vehicles are generally supplied with power and control signals via contact lines on the carrier rail. The running rails are either attached to the hall ceiling or to a suspended or pillar-mounted steel structure.

If large spatial distances need to be covered or different buildings need to be linked logistically, the EMS is the optimum means of conveyance to get your goods to be conveyed to their destination fast, fully automatically, efficiently and reliably within a short time.

Depending on the requirements, we develop hangers and load bearing equipment tailored to your individual needs.

Our Systems in Action

Electrified monorail systems can be adapted to individual customer requirements without difficulty. For this reason they are used in many branches of industry.

Food & Beverages

The beverages industry is an industrial sector making increasing use of electrified monorail systems. This mainly involves the supply of the high-performance filling systems with pallets for empties and the subsequent transfer of the pallets of fulls to the warehouse, the order picking area and shipping department. Despite the requested handling capacity, they convey fragile goods gently and reliably.

Warehousing

In the industry, large warehouses are placed between the production and the shipping areas more and more frequently. In this way, it is possible to supply the customer dead-on and make optimum use of the production facilities. The electrified monorail system is often used as the most convenient linking element. It facilitates linking buildings that are located at a greater distance and ensures high throughputs at the same time. Even the automatic generation of shipping sequences and coupling with automatic storage-and-retrieval systems is possible without difficulty.

Package & Postal

Many packages and parcels are stored and transported in containers. Using the VarioTow system, a wide range of roll cars or lift trucks can be coupled to the electrified monorail system and thus conveyed flexibly.

This creates an efficient, organized and fast material flow in the plant.

Catering

In the field of the large-scale catering establishments, the degree of automation is constantly increasing as well. Many areas in the kitchen can be automated using the electrified monorail system (EMS). At various workstations, the meal carts can be loaded onto the EMS hanger, where special turning stations permit access from all sides; even automatic washing of the carts is possible.

Production

Assembly work in production is getting more and more time consuming and versatile. A large number of processes must be handled in a very short time.

With its individually designable trolleys and the flexible low-noise operation, the electrified monorail system is ideally suited for use in the assembly area. The trolleys and hangers are optimally adapted to the loads and even special requirements such as lifting or turning can be implemented.
