KSHXYZ Servo "X/Y" Tractor with "Z" Control
Knight Global's KSHXYZ Servo "X/Y" Tractor with "Z" Controls are designed to accurately locate, push, tow, lift  and position loads from an overhead rail system. The KSHXYZ Series facilitates a (3) three axis, (2) two tractor combo configuration. Tractors significantly reduce the push/ pull forces as well as the energy to sustain movements. Knight's KSHXYZ Series Servo Tractors have Knight's (IAD) Intelligent Assist Device Servo Technology incorporated into their design allowing them to provide controlled transfers of workloads with speed and precision. Knight's Servo "X/Y" with "Z" Control Tractors can be programmed to automatically or manually move and stop the runway (X Axis) or bridge (Y Axis) at intended locations with repeatable accuracy while lifting loads (Z Axis) at the same time; thus eliminating unnecessary operator motions. Knight Servo Tractors can be programmed for assembly line speed synchronization.

The KSHXYZ Servo Tractor offers a continuous contact non-slip rack and pinion design. This continuous non-slip design allows for a more accurate positioning of the load. Movement of the Servo Tractor is controlled by input sensors that have an electrical signal that interprets the different weight or forces applied from the operator.
