Conveyor Rail information

  1. Mar 12, 2014 #1
    Hi!
    I was wondering if anyone had any links or information to how conveyor rails work?
    Basically, I'm designing a product that would require a chair to move up and down an incline. I'd like to place it on a powered conveyor rail, but need more information on the mechanics and can't find any.
    Thanks for your help!

    Here is a manual for a conveyor rail system. It may give you some ideas.
