Options That Increase Productivity While Improving Functional Safety.

Conceptual Innovations can help engineer a turnkey system to help you overcome the grueling demands of industrial manufacturing. These systems can transport the heaviest, largest, and most unique loads, while also performing valuable handling functions.

Flexibility to Meet Your Needs

At the core of our versatility is our patented electric drive systems: The Drive Caster® and HaloDrive™. Each is a self-contained, modular drive unit that can be integrated into a wide variety of new or existing equipment.

Both feature several options for additional functions and capabilities, giving you unparalleled flexibility to develop the ideal turnkey system for your application.

Engineering Services

For over two decades, clients have relied on the ingenuity of our engineers to conquer their most complex materials transport and production challenges. Our seasoned team brings expertise spanning design, consultation, and build phases to ensure seamless project execution from conception to completion.

We engineer solutions – not just products – to improve productivity, increase safety, reduce the risk of damage, and achieve greater efficiency.


Achieve more with a wide variety of options for additional capabilities.

Capacity and Dimensions

The only limit to the size and weight capacity of HaloDrive™ Platform Transporters is the physical limitations of your facility. The fully integrated modular design of HaloDrive Pods™ eliminates barriers that limit placement, alignment, and other restricting factors.

Adding additional pods increases load and drive capacity while improving stability and safety by distributing the load.

A single Platform Transporter can be engineered to transport massive components such as those found in aerospace, wind power, or naval applications, anywhere where power and precision are required.

Tandem – Dual Transporters

All our carts and transporters can be synchronized to work in tandem. This optional feature enables a single operator to control two carts that function in unison.

Custom Platform Tables

Carts and Transporters can be developed with a custom table to securely transport any load.

We have designed and manufactured tables for a wide variety of applications, including:

  • Coils and Rolls
  • Pipes
  • Roller Bed
  • Engines
  • Turbines
  • Boats
  • Rockets
  • Transmissions

Lift and Tilt

We offer various lift and tilt capabilities for precise horizontal positioning.

  • Hydraulic lift tables
  • Scissor lift
  • Hydraulic lift arm
  • Screw lift

Retractable Drive Wheel

The Drive Caster® is available with the option to retract the drive wheel. This disengages the drive wheel to allow for towing or manual movement, an ideal function for material transfer carts used in tow trains.
