Flexible conveyor systems permit you to relocate conveyor intake or egress points by altering conveyor sectors according to ever-changing needs throughout your hours of operation. These expandable conveyor solutions are often put to use in shipping centers or loading docks where trucks are unloaded and loaded. One conveyor solution can be set up to feed multiple dock doors.
Flexible Gravity Conveyor
Flexible gravity conveyor systems are furnished with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and come in a range of widths and capacities, from lightweight systems for less rigorous use to heavy duty options appropriate for applications in distribution centers and other high volume operations.
Although steel skate wheels are typical, these conveyors can be configured in a variety of materials including stainless steel, aluminum and plastic.
Steel skate wheels include a multitude of benefits and are a perfect choice for a wide variety of business uses from assembly lines to storage space. They are well suited for flat surface, lightweight items like cartons. Because each wheel turns independently, they are also used for curvilinear conveyor segments.
Gravity rollers are a more suitable option for heavier items, and can also accommodate uneven package surfaces in addition to standard boxes. Rollers don't rotate as quickly as discreet skate wheels, so roller configurations can be put to use for accumulation applications where skate wheels aren't the right fit.
Flexible Powered Conveyor
Loading docks are bustling areas that have a variety of functions, from unloading trailers to loading individual cases onto delivery trucks. Flexible, compact, modular conveyors are the perfect way to maintain versatility on your loading dock while improving efficiency.
In almost all modern warehouse operations, maximizing storage space is a dominant concern. When not in use, these conveyors can be almost fully collapsed, creating a far smaller storage footprint versus the alternatives.
Power conveyors can also improve safety and ergonomics. By establishing an unimpeded line between the loading dock and the end of a permanent conveyor, these systems promote ergonomic benefits for your labor force, reduce the risk of injury, improve safety and heighten productivity.
Roller conveyors can be ordered in a variety of roller widths, from 1.5-1.9 inches. They're adjustable in height, allowing you to use them for different types of vehicles and applications. With a weight spec of up to 100 lbs/foot, these conveyors are ideal for many different categories of goods.
Powered options feature variable rates, from 0-120 feet per minute. Stop and start toggles are installed on both ends of the machine so that they can be controlled from both sides. They are also equipped with heavy duty castors and brakes, so they can be easily moved but safely locked in place as needed.
Flexible conveyors are recommended for a wide variety of industries, including e-com, distribution centers, retail locations, food and beverage distribution, 3PL, manufacturing, package service and more.
