Flexible conveyor systems enable you to reposition conveyor intake or egress positions by adjusting conveyor segments based on ever-changing conditions during the workday. These expandable conveyor solutions are often put to use in e-com facilities or loading docks where truck trailers are unloaded and loaded. One conveyor system can be used to supply numerous dock doors.
Flexible Gravity Conveyor
Flexible gravity conveyor systems are set up with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and are supplied in a variety of widths and capacities, from basic systems for less rigorous use to heavy duty options adequate for use in distribution centers and other high volume operations.
Although steel skate wheels are typical, these conveyors may also be constructed from other materials such as aluminum, plastic and stainless steel.
Steel skate wheels include many benefits and are an ideal choice for a wide variety of enterprise applications from assembly lines to storage space. They are well suited for flat surface, lightweight goods like cases. Because each wheel turns independently, they are frequently used for curved 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 fast as discreet skate wheels, so roller configurations can be used for accumulation applications where skate wheels are not an option.
Flexible Powered Conveyor
Warehouse docks are hectic places that have a variety of 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 almost all modern warehouse operations, maximizing storage space is a top consideration. When not in use, these conveyors can be compactly folded, making a significantly reduced storage footprint as opposed to other options.
Power conveyors can also enhance safety and ergonomics. By establishing an unimpeded line between the trailers at your dock and the end of a permanent conveyor, these systems offer ergonomic benefits for your workers, slash the number of injuries, improve safety and heighten productivity.
Roller conveyors can be ordered in a variety of roller widths, from 1.5-1.9 inches. They are fully height adjustable, permitting you to put them to use for different types of vehicles and applications. With a load spec of close to 100 lbs/foot, these conveyors are ideal for a diverse range of goods.
Powered options give you variable speeds, from 0-120 feet per minute. Start and stop toggles are positioned 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 stationed in place as required.
Flexible conveyors are suitable for a wide variety of industries, including e-com, distribution centers, retail locations, food and beverage distribution, manufacturing, third-party logistics, parcel post and more.
