Flexible conveyor systems permit you to reposition conveyor entry or egress sites by modifying conveyor sections based on changing requirements throughout your business hours. These expandable conveyor solutions are often used in e-com facilities or loading docks where trucks are loaded and unloaded. A single conveyor solution can be installed to serve multiple loading dock positions.

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 appropriate for use in distribution centers and other intensive operations.

Although steel skate wheels are most prevalent, these conveyors can be configured in a range of materials like plastic, stainless steel and aluminum.

Steel skate wheels offer a multitude of benefits and are a great choice for a wide variety of enterprise applications from assembly lines to storage space. They are suitable for flat surface, lightweight pieces like cases. Because each wheel turns independently, they are commonly employed for curvilinear conveyor segments.

Gravity rollers are a more suitable option for heavier objects, and can also convey irregular package surfaces in addition to regular flat-bottomed items. Rollers don't rotate as quickly as separate skate wheels, so roller beds can be used for accumulation applications where skate wheels aren't the right fit.

Flexible Powered Conveyor

Warehouse docks are busy places that function in a number of capacities, from loading and unloading trailers to packing cases on delivery trucks. Flexible, compact, modular conveyors are the optimum way to improve both productivity and versatility.

In most modern warehouses, maximizing storage space is a dominant consideration. When these conveyors are not being used, they can be almost fully collapsed, creating a far smaller storage footprint in contrast to other alternatives.

Power conveyors can also boost safety and ergonomics. By creating an unimpeded line between the loading dock and the endpoint of a permanent conveyor, these systems offer ergonomic benefits for your labor force, minimize injuries, strengthen safety and enhance productivity.

Roller conveyors can be ordered in a variety of roller widths, from 1.5-1.9 inches. They are adjustable in height, allowing you to put them to use for different truck heights and applications. Featuring a load standard of close to 100 lbs per foot, these conveyors are perfect for countless types of SKUs.

Powered options give you variable speeds, from 0-120 feet per minute. Stop and start controls are installed on either end of the equipment so that they can be controlled from both sides. They are also equipped with heavy duty castors and brakes, so they can be easily moved but safely fixed in place when needed.

Flexible conveyors are appropriate for a wide variety of sectors, including e-com, distribution centers, beverage and grocery distribution, retail, manufacturing, third-party logistics, parcel post and more.
