Towing Loads with Speed and Precision
Knight Global's Tractor Series accurately locates and moves loads in the "X" and "Y" directions with precision and reliability. Tractors are devices designed primarily to push, pull, lift and position a load that is suspended from a trolley on an overhead rail system. Knight Tractors significantly reduce the push pull forces as well as the energy to sustain movements.

Knight Servo Tractors incorporate (IAD) Intelligent Assist Device Servo Technology, giving them unlimited programmability for all your specific application needs. Servo Hoist Tractors accurately locates, transfers and lifts loads in the "X", "Y" and "Z" Directions. Knight's Electric Tractors are equipped with Knight's VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) Tractor Drive that provides operators with complete control while locating loads.

Knight Global - Servo Tractor Series
Servo Tractors
Servo Hoist Tractor "X", "Y" with "Z" Control Series
Knight Global's Servo Hoist Tractor Systems are Intelligent Assist Devices (IAD) developed and manufactured to make lifting and the moving of product easier and smarter. Traditional hoists and tractors have operators pushing buttons to actuate a lift. Knight's Servo Hoist Tractors will enable an operator to simply grasp the handle to lift and move the load; no pushing of buttons is required. This is accomplished through a load sensing motion that is virtually invisible to the operator. The benefit of this Servo Technology is to increase productivity and ergonomics by eliminating wasted motions and lagging reaction time.
Servo Rack and Pinion Tractor
The Knight Rack and Pinion Tractor utilizes absolute positioning techniques to allow the system to always be engaged, and never lose positioning even when power is cycled. This is a robust and accurate approach to the powered gantry system. All speeds, accelerations and decelerations are programmable, along with virtual paths, positions and limits that can be set up to any of your application requirements.
