Flexible conveyor systems allow you to relocate conveyor ingress or exit positions by altering conveyor segments based on fluctuating needs during your business hours. These expandable conveyor solutions are often used in shipping centers or loading docks where trailers are unloaded and loaded. A single conveyor solution can be used to serve numerous loading dock slots.
Flexible Gravity Conveyor
Flexible gravity conveyor systems are furnished with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and are offered in a variety of capacities and widths, from minimal systems for less rigorous use to heavy duty options appropriate for use in distribution centers and other high volume operations.
Although steel skate wheels are most prevalent, these conveyors may also be constructed from a variety of materials such as plastic, stainless steel and aluminum.
Steel skate wheels include a multitude of benefits and are a great choice for a wide variety of business uses from storage space to assembly lines. They are well suited for lightweight, flat-bottomed pieces like cases. Since each wheel operates independently from the next, they are frequently used for curvilinear conveyor segments.
Gravity rollers are better suited for heavier items, and can also convey uneven package surfaces in addition to flat based items. Rollers don't rotate as rapidly as discreet skate wheels, so roller beds can be employed for accumulation applications where skate wheels aren't the right fit.
Flexible Powered Conveyor
Loading docks are hectic areas that function in a number of capacities, from packing boxes onto delivery trucks to loading and unloading semi-trailers. Compact, flexible, modular conveyors are the perfect way to improve both productivity and versatility.
In most modern warehouses, storage density is a dominant concern. When these conveyors are not being used, they can be almost fully collapsed, making a significantly smaller storage footprint as opposed to other options.
Power conveyors can also boost ergonomic comfort and safety. By making a direct path between the loading dock and the ingress point of a permanent conveyor, these systems create ergonomic benefits for your employees, slash the number of injuries, increase safety and boost efficiency.
Roller conveyors can be ordered in a variety of roller widths, from 1.5-1.9 inches. They are fully height adjustable, allowing you to use them for different truck heights and applications. Featuring a weight spec of up to 100 lbs per foot, these conveyors are an optimal solution for a diverse range of SKUs.
Powered options give you variable speeds, from 0-120 feet per minute. Stop and start toggles are positioned on both ends of the conveyor so that they can be controlled from both sides. They are also equipped with heavy duty castors and brakes, so they can be easily relocated but safely fixed in place when required.
Flexible conveyors are recommended for a wide variety of fields, including e-com, distribution centers, beverage and grocery distribution, retail, 3PL, manufacturing, parcel post and more.
