Flexible conveyor systems enable you to move conveyor entry or exit points by altering conveyor sections based on ever-changing conditions during the workday. These expandable conveyor solutions are often put to use in e-commerce operations or loading docks where truck trailers are loaded and unloaded. A single conveyor system can be installed to supply several dock slots.
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 lightweight systems for less demanding use to heavy duty options adequate for applications in distribution centers and other intensive operations.
Although steel skate wheels are most prevalent, these conveyors may also be built with other materials including stainless steel, aluminum and plastic.
Steel skate wheels include 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 items like boxes. Because each wheel turns independently, they are also used for arced conveyor segments.
Gravity rollers are a better choice for heavier items, and can also accommodate uneven package surfaces in addition to flat based items. Rollers don't spin as quickly as separate skate wheels, so roller solutions can be used for accumulation applications where skate wheels are not suitable.
Flexible Powered Conveyor
Loading docks are busy areas that serve a variety of purposes, from packing boxes onto delivery trucks to loading and unloading semi-trailers. Flexible, compact, modular conveyors are the perfect way to maintain versatility on your loading dock while improving efficiency.
In most modern warehouses, maximizing storage space is a top concern. When not in service, these conveyors can be compactly folded, making a much smaller storage footprint as opposed to other options.
Power conveyors can also boost safety and ergonomics. By establishing an unimpeded line between the loading dock and the endpoint of a permanent conveyor, these systems promote ergonomic benefits for your workers, slash the number of injuries, improve safety and enhance productivity.
Roller conveyors are available in a range of roller widths, from 1.5-1.9 inches. They're adjustable in height, permitting you to put them to use for different types of vehicles and applications. With a payload spec of up to 100 lbs/foot, these conveyors are an optimal solution for countless types of goods.
Powered options feature variable rates, from 0-120 feet per minute. Stop and start switches are positioned on both ends of the conveyor so that they can be actuated from both sides. They are also furnished with heavy duty castors and brakes, so they can be easily relocated but securely stationed in place when necessary.
Flexible conveyors are appropriate for a wide variety of fields, including distribution centers, e-commerce, beverage and grocery distribution, retail, manufacturing, third-party logistics, package service and more.
