FAM Tripper Cars

The main function of FAM tripper cars is basically to offload or divert the material from any location on a stationary or shiftable belt conveyor onto:

  • a transverse belt conveyor,
  • a receiving boom of a spreader,
  • a receiving boom of a spreader over own discharge conveyor,
  • or to directly dump it.

The tripper cars are therefore often referred to as transfer car.

Tripper cars differ in the design of travel units which can be built rail-borne or on crawler tracks. These machines find widespread application in all industries, being useful and reliable links within conveyor systems.
