Yesterday’s material handling equipment solutions do not meet the demands of today’s adaptive workplace. Single-use, anchored, high maintenance and inflexible designs have obvious limitations not the least of which is lost opportunity.
Over time, two concepts have proved invaluable: mobility and positioning of material. Where anchored and static equipment limit ergonomics, location, space utilization, and future options, dynamic, functional solutions can overcome these challenges. Whatever your challenge, Track Systems has the right solution for your industry needs. All of this and our equipment is 100% made in the USA.
WHO WE ARE
Decades of manufacturing experience have enabled us to listen to, and be driven by, our customer’s requests for continuous improvement in form, fit and function of supplied equipment. Through our commitment to excellence, this has evolved into a unique and on-going product development program which gives due consideration to the following pillars:
Safety • Ergonomics • Mobility • Modularity • Accessibility • Appearance • Performance • Longevity • Connectivity • Noise Reduction • Replacement Manpower • Time and Cost
Engineering design and product development are the foundations of Track Systems business. When our team engages in a new project, the objective is to identify the best possible solution. Where standard products apply, we will so advise. Alternatively, customization may be appropriate if we encounter a unique application and we will recommend a specialty product to meet your needs.
During our decades of manufacturing experience, product features and benefits have been driven by the need for continuously increased output without sacrificing safety and cost control. These constants, coupled with the need for mobility and customization, has shaped Track Systems’ offering to what it is today. We offer equipment for containment, positioning, assembly, transport, and storage of raw materials and finished products, as well as provide consultation and engineering development on custom fabrication projects. We specialize in material handling equipment designed to improve your productivity, safety and bottom line.
Engineering design and development are the foundation of Track System’s business. We have helped hundreds of clients design custom products that exceed their expectations. Our team welcomes the opportunity for consultation and on-site visits to define specifications and goals to make recommendations for standard manufactured or custom fabricated equipment.
Our roots stem from the 1980s in New Jersey, in a modest facility, where containers and workstations were fabricated from mild and stainless steel to satisfy client requirements in the specialty chemical and chemical industries.
In 1993 the acquisition of a metal rack manufacturer outside of Chicago led to additional opportunities in the Midwest. This move expanded market reach and product mix to include retail store fixtures specifically designed to display automotive products.
Midwestern proximity to mainstream automotive manufacturers presented opportunities for expansion into assembly line support products. Here our engineering group proved vital. Multiple onsite visits defined problem areas, which led to concept drawings, prototypes, constant collaboration and finally, exemplary solutions for our customers.
Our drive for continuous improvement allowed us to recognize the need for equipment with increased mobility and ergonomic positioning throughout the assembly, fulfillment and distribution industries. Our design excellence and precise adherence to specifications have resulted in high marks and repeat business from our growing list of clients.
Applied automation continues to play an ever-increasing role in today’s material handling marketplace, principally because of cost savings. Projects which might otherwise prove unjustified can become profitable if designed and implemented correctly. Track System’s product integration program is in place to aid our customers with support engineering services to accomplish this objective.
A common example is the use of guided vehicles, AGC or AGV, coupled to one or more mobile carts for transport intra-plant, typically from the truck dock to storage or directly to the assembly line. Many factors are involved including; floor condition, available space for turning, wheel composition, load, single or multi-direction, stopping, coupling, intersections, skid resistance and emergency stops. The carts/trolleys being towed need to be specifically designed for the automated vehicle interface to ensure compatibility.
Another growing model involves collaborative robotics supporting work station operations by performing repetitive tasks that have typically been performed by an employee. The desired result is to more efficiently utilize the operator for value-added or decision necessary activity. Engineering details of the work cell configuration vary significantly and are critical to a successful operation.
Additionally, pick-to-light and pick-to-voice systems are now commonplace in kitting and distribution applications. However, the storage racks and carts these systems are mounted on require customization to optimize performance.
Track Systems has a depth of experience in the integration of these automated systems with our equipment, and upon request, we will readily engage our team to offer recommendations specific to your application.
Containers and Workstations
Productivity starts with the comfort of your workers. Adjustable, well-made, and ergonomically designed, workstations from Track Systems come in a wide variety of sizes and work surfaces. We offer many options and accessories to build the workstation that best meets operator needs.
Store Fixtures for Point of Purchase and Shelving Displays
Keeping inventory organized and well-displayed in a retail setting can be a challenge. Track Systems offers functional and practical store fixtures and displays with unique configurations, including gravity rollers that allow the shelves to automatically move product from the back to the front. We have configured many point-of-purchase display units designed to make the display good-looking and the process of restocking seamless.
Gravity Flow Racks for Assembly Lines
Increase production line efficiency with a gravity flow rack (GFR) from Track Systems. Carefully designed and crafted for maximum efficiency, gravity flow racks allow for a reduction in production costs and an increase in productivity because it facilitates an assembly line style.
Mobile Positioning and Transport Equipment
Never worry about transporting goods in your warehouse or facility again. Track Systems offers a full line of transport equipment that combines mobility with ergonomic design for ideal movements and positioning of parts, supplies, and products.
