Flexible conveyor systems permit you to reposition conveyor intake or egress positions by adjusting conveyor segments according to fluctuating conditions throughout your business hours. These expandable conveyor solutions are often utilized in e-commerce operations or loading docks where trucks are unloaded and loaded. One conveyor system can be used to serve multiple loading dock slots.
Flexible Gravity Conveyor
Flexible gravity conveyor systems are equipped with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and come in a variety of widths and capacities, from minimal systems for less demanding use to heavy duty options suitable for applications in distribution centers and other intensive operations.
Although steel skate wheels are typical, these conveyors can be constructed from a variety of materials including aluminum, plastic and stainless steel.
Steel skate wheels offer many benefits and are an ideal choice for a wide variety of enterprise applications from assembly lines to storage space. They are suitable for flat surface, lightweight items like cases. Because each wheel turns independently, they are commonly employed for arced conveyor sections.
Gravity rollers are better suited for heavier items, and can also accommodate uneven package surfaces in addition to regular flat-bottomed items. Rollers don't rotate as quickly as separate skate wheels, so roller beds can be employed for accumulation applications where skate wheels are not suitable.
Flexible Powered Conveyor
Loading docks are hectic places that function in a number of capacities, from loading and unloading trailers to packing cases on delivery trucks. Compact, flexible, modular conveyors are the optimum way to improve efficiency on your loading dock while maintaining versatility.
In almost all modern warehouses, maximizing storage space is a premier concern. When not in use, these conveyors can be compactly folded, making a much smaller storage footprint as opposed to other options.
Power conveyors can also enhance safety and ergonomics. By establishing an unimpeded line between the dock door and the ingress point of a permanent conveyor, these systems offer ergonomic benefits for your workers, reduce the risk of injury, increase safety and boost efficiency.
Roller conveyors are available in a range of roller widths, from 1.5-1.9 inches. They're fully height adjustable, enabling you to use them for different truck heights and applications. With a weight spec of nearly 100 lbs/foot, these conveyors are perfect for many different categories of products.
Powered options feature variable speeds, from 0-120 feet per minute. Stop and start switches are mounted on both ends of the machine so that they can be controlled from both sides. They are also furnished with heavy duty castors and brakes, so they can be easily maneuvered but securely fixed in place as necessary.
Flexible conveyors are appropriate for a wide variety of fields, including distribution centers, e-commerce, beverage and grocery distribution, retail, 3PL, manufacturing, parcel post and more.
