Flexible conveyor systems permit you to reposition conveyor ingress or exit positions by adjusting conveyor sections based on fluctuating needs during your hours of operation. These expandable conveyor solutions are often used in e-com facilities or loading docks where trucks are unloaded and loaded. One conveyor solution can be set up to supply multiple dock doors.
Flexible Gravity Conveyor
Flexible gravity conveyor systems are furnished with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and are offered in a range of capacities and widths, from basic systems for less rigorous use to heavy duty options appropriate for use in distribution centers and other high volume operations.
Although steel skate wheels are most prevalent, these conveyors may also be configured in other materials including plastic, stainless steel and aluminum.
Steel skate wheels offer a multitude of benefits and are a great choice for a wide variety of enterprise applications from storage space to assembly lines. They are appropriate for flat surface, lightweight pieces like boxes. Because each wheel turns independently, they are frequently used for arced conveyor sections.
Gravity rollers are better suited for heavier items, and can also convey irregular package surfaces in addition to regular flat-bottomed items. Rollers don't spin as rapidly as discreet skate wheels, so roller solutions can be used for accumulation applications where skate wheels are not suitable.
Flexible Powered Conveyor
Warehouse loading docks are busy areas that have many functions, from loading and unloading trailers to packing cases on delivery trucks. Compact, flexible, modular conveyors are the perfect way to improve both productivity and versatility.
In most modern warehouses, maximizing storage space is a premier consideration. When these conveyors are not being used, they can be almost fully collapsed, making a significantly reduced storage footprint as opposed to other options.
Power conveyors can also improve safety and ergonomics. By establishing an unimpeded path between the trailers at your dock and the endpoint of a permanent conveyor, these systems promote ergonomic benefits for your labor force, reduce the risk of injury, strengthen safety and heighten productivity.
Roller conveyors can be ordered in a range of roller widths, from 1.5-1.9 inches. They're adjustable in height, enabling you to use them for different truck heights and applications. With a weight spec of up to 100 lbs/ft, these conveyors are perfect for countless types of SKUs.
Powered options offer variable rates, from 0-120 feet per minute. Start and stop switches are installed on either end of the equipment so that they can be actuated from both sides. They are also furnished with heavy duty castors and brakes, so they can be easily moved but safely locked in place when required.
Flexible conveyors are appropriate for a wide variety of fields, including distribution centers, e-commerce, beverage and grocery distribution, retail, 3PL, manufacturing, package service and more.
