Flexible conveyor systems allow you to move conveyor intake or discharge points by altering conveyor segments according to changing needs during your hours of operation. These expandable conveyor solutions are often used in e-commerce operations or loading docks where trailers are loaded and unloaded. A single conveyor system can be installed to serve numerous dock positions.
Flexible Gravity Conveyor
Flexible gravity conveyor systems are set up with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and come in many capacities and widths, from lightweight systems for less demanding use to heavy duty options appropriate for deployment in distribution centers and other high volume operations.
Although steel skate wheels are typical, these conveyors may also be built with other materials like stainless steel, aluminum and plastic.
Steel skate wheels include many benefits and are a great choice for a wide variety of enterprise applications from storage space to assembly lines. They are suitable for flat surface, lightweight pieces like cases. Since each wheel operates independently from the next, they are commonly employed for curved conveyor sections.
Gravity rollers are a more suitable option for heavier items, and can also accommodate irregular package surfaces in addition to flat based items. Rollers don't rotate as rapidly as separate skate wheels, so roller configurations can be put to use for accumulation applications where skate wheels are not an option.
Flexible Powered Conveyor
Loading docks are busy places that serve a variety of purposes, 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 almost all modern warehouse operations, storage density is a premier concern. When not in service, these conveyors can be compactly folded, creating a significantly reduced storage footprint in contrast to other alternatives.
Power conveyors can also improve ergonomic comfort and safety. By making an unimpeded route between the dock door and the ingress point of a permanent conveyor, these systems create 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're adjustable in height, allowing you to put them to use for different types of vehicles and applications. Featuring a payload standard of nearly 100 lbs/foot, these conveyors are an optimal solution for a diverse range of SKUs.
Powered options feature variable speeds, from 0-120 feet per minute. Start and stop controls are positioned on either end of the conveyor so that they can be operated from both sides. They are also outfitted with heavy duty castors and brakes, so they can be easily maneuvered but securely fixed in place when required.
Flexible conveyors are suitable for a wide variety of industries, including distribution centers, e-commerce, retail locations, food and beverage distribution, 3PL, manufacturing, package service and more.
