Flexible conveyor systems allow you to move conveyor ingress or egress positions by altering conveyor sections according to changing needs during your business hours. These expandable conveyor solutions are often utilized in e-commerce operations or loading docks where truck trailers are unloaded and loaded. A single conveyor solution can be used to supply numerous loading dock slots.
Flexible Gravity Conveyor
Flexible gravity conveyor systems are equipped with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and come in a range of widths and capacities, from minimal systems for less rigorous use to heavy duty options suitable for applications in distribution centers and other intensive operations.
Although steel skate wheels are most prevalent, these conveyors may also be constructed from other materials including plastic, stainless steel and aluminum.
Steel skate wheels offer many benefits and are a perfect choice for a wide variety of industrial purposes from storage space to assembly lines. They are suitable for lightweight, flat-bottomed goods like cartons. Because each wheel turns independently, they are also used for curved conveyor sections.
Gravity rollers are a better choice for heavier objects, and can also convey uneven package surfaces in addition to flat based items. Rollers don't spin as rapidly as discreet skate wheels, so roller beds can be used for accumulation applications where skate wheels are not suitable.
Flexible Powered Conveyor
Warehouse loading docks are busy places that function in a number of capacities, from unloading trailers to loading individual cases onto delivery trucks. Compact, flexible, modular conveyors are the optimum way to improve efficiency on your loading dock while maintaining versatility.
In most modern warehouses, storage density is a top consideration. When these conveyors are not being used, they can be compactly folded, creating a much smaller storage footprint as opposed to other options.
Power conveyors can also improve safety and ergonomics. By creating an unimpeded path between the loading dock and the end of a permanent conveyor, these systems create ergonomic benefits for your workers, minimize injuries, improve safety and heighten productivity.
Roller conveyors can be ordered in a range of roller widths, from 1.5-1.9 inches. They are fully height adjustable, allowing you to put them to use for different truck heights and applications. Featuring a payload capacity of up to 100 lbs/ft, these conveyors are an optimal solution for a diverse range of SKUs.
Powered options offer variable rates, from 0-120 feet per minute. Start and stop toggles are mounted 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 maneuvered but solidly fixed in place when required.
Flexible conveyors are appropriate for a wide variety of industries, including distribution centers, e-commerce, beverage and grocery distribution, retail, 3PL, manufacturing, parcel post and more.
