Flexible conveyor systems allow you to reposition conveyor ingress or exit positions by altering conveyor sections based on changing conditions throughout your hours of operation. These expandable conveyor solutions are often utilized in e-commerce operations or loading docks where trailers are unloaded and loaded. A single conveyor solution can be set up to supply multiple loading dock positions.
Flexible Gravity Conveyor
Flexible gravity conveyor systems are equipped with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and are offered in a variety of widths and capacities, from basic systems for less rigorous use to heavy duty options suitable for applications in distribution centers and other high volume operations.
Although steel skate wheels are most prevalent, these conveyors may also be built with a range of materials such as 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 storage space to assembly lines. They are appropriate for lightweight, flat-bottomed items like cartons. Since each wheel operates independently from the next, they are commonly employed for curved conveyor segments.
Gravity rollers are a more suitable option for heavier objects, and can also accommodate uneven package surfaces in addition to regular flat-bottomed items. Rollers don't rotate as fast as individual skate wheels, so roller configurations can be employed for accumulation applications where skate wheels aren't the right fit.
Flexible Powered Conveyor
Warehouse docks are busy places that serve a variety of purposes, from packing boxes onto delivery trucks to loading and unloading semi-trailers. Compact, flexible, modular conveyors are the perfect way to maintain versatility on your loading dock while improving efficiency.
In almost all sophisticated warehouse operations, storage density is a top consideration. When not in use, these conveyors can be almost fully collapsed, creating a significantly smaller storage footprint in contrast to other alternatives.
Power conveyors can also improve ergonomic comfort and safety. By creating an unimpeded path between the loading dock and the end of a permanent conveyor, these systems offer ergonomic benefits for your labor force, slash the number of injuries, increase safety and boost efficiency.
Roller conveyors come in a range of roller widths, from 1.5-1.9 inches. They're fully height adjustable, allowing you to use them for different truck heights and applications. With a weight capacity of close to 100 lbs/ft, these conveyors are ideal for a diverse range of products.
Powered options offer variable speeds, from 0-120 feet per minute. Start and stop toggles are mounted on either end of the conveyor so that they can be actuated from both sides. They are also outfitted with heavy duty castors and brakes, so they can be easily maneuvered but safely stationed in place when necessary.
Flexible conveyors are recommended for a wide variety of industries, including e-com, distribution centers, beverage and grocery distribution, retail, manufacturing, third-party logistics, package service and more.
