Rail transfer carts

The transfer cart by definition!


Morello powered rail cart represents an economical solution compared to self-propelled transporters without giving up safety and reliability.

Rail transfer perfectly adapted to any type of load including largest and heaviest up to 1,000 tons on fixed and constrained routes. This solution is ideal when production cycles and routes are stable for long periods of time.

Our rail transfer carts can be powered in many ways.

In fact, we can supply electric rail carts powered by battery or plant grid (through cable drum, busbar, cable chain, etc.).

We can also supply powered rail carts powered by a diesel engine or the plant’s pneumatic network.

You can use our powered rail carts for a variety of material handling and logistics purposes:

  • Connect multiple bays of an industrial building
  • Connect a building with a yard
  • Connect a plant with a department
  • Lighten the work of the overhead cranes
  • Automate the movement of materials along a production process

Morello is able to supply completely customized electric rail carts, which can also be integrated into a complex and completely automated plant. Our software engineers can work on the main PLCs on the market, guaranteeing a safe and effective interface with customer automation. All our automatic transfer carts follow the strictest safety standards, both mechanically and electrically/electronically.
