Flexible conveyor systems enable you to move conveyor intake or egress points by adjusting conveyor segments according to ever-changing conditions during your business hours. These expandable conveyor solutions are often put to use in shipping centers or loading docks where truck trailers are loaded and unloaded. One conveyor system can be set up to serve several dock doors.
Flexible Gravity Conveyor
Flexible gravity conveyor systems are equipped with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and are offered in many capacities and widths, from minimal systems for less rigorous use to heavy duty options appropriate for use in distribution centers and other intensive operations.
Although steel skate wheels are most prevalent, these conveyors may also be constructed from other materials including aluminum, plastic and stainless steel.
Steel skate wheels include a multitude of benefits and are a great choice for a wide variety of industrial purposes from storage space to assembly lines. They are suitable for flat surface, lightweight goods like boxes. Since each wheel operates independently from the next, they are commonly employed for curvilinear conveyor segments.
Gravity rollers are better suited for heavier items, and can also convey uneven package surfaces in addition to standard boxes. Rollers don't rotate as fast as separate skate wheels, so roller configurations can be used for accumulation applications where skate wheels aren't the right fit.
Flexible Powered Conveyor
Warehouse docks are bustling areas that have many functions, from loading and unloading trailers to packing cases on delivery trucks. Compact, flexible, modular conveyors are the optimum way to maintain versatility on your loading dock while improving efficiency.
In most sophisticated warehouses, storage density is a top consideration. When not in use, these conveyors can be compactly folded, creating a far smaller storage footprint versus the alternatives.
Power conveyors can also boost safety and ergonomics. By making a direct path between the loading dock and the endpoint of a permanent conveyor, these systems promote ergonomic benefits for your labor force, slash the number of injuries, strengthen safety and enhance efficiency.
Roller conveyors come in a range of roller widths, from 1.5-1.9 inches. They are adjustable in height, allowing you to put them to use for different types of vehicles and applications. Featuring a load spec of close to 100 lbs/ft, these conveyors are an optimal solution for many different categories of goods.
Powered options feature variable speeds, from 0-120 feet per minute. Start and stop toggles are installed on both ends of the conveyor so that they can be operated from both sides. They are also furnished with heavy duty castors and brakes, so they can be easily moved but securely fixed in place when necessary.
Flexible conveyors are suitable for a wide variety of sectors, including e-com, distribution centers, retail locations, food and beverage distribution, manufacturing, third-party logistics, parcel post and more.
