CONTINUOUS TRUCK JIG
|Truck Jigging is a technique suggested
for reducing the effective cycle times on ramp inclines. It involves attaching
an endless wire rope between a full truck at the bottom of the ramp, and
an empty truck at the top of the ramp. Trucks attach to the rope by hydraulic
clamps. The rope passes over fixed pulley sheaves at both ends of the ramp.
An empty truck descends the ramp under power while helping to elevate the
Net vehicle weights counterbalance each other, and reduce grade effects on the loaded truck.
