Flexible conveyor systems enable you to relocate conveyor ingress or egress positions by adjusting conveyor segments according to fluctuating needs during your business hours. These expandable conveyor solutions are often put to use in e-commerce operations or loading docks where trailers are unloaded and loaded. One conveyor system can be set up to serve multiple loading dock positions.
Flexible Gravity Conveyor
Flexible gravity conveyor systems are equipped with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and are offered in many widths and capacities, from lightweight systems for less rigorous use to heavy duty options appropriate for applications in distribution centers and other high volume operations.
Although steel skate wheels are most common, these conveyors can be configured in other materials including stainless steel, aluminum and plastic.
Steel skate wheels include many benefits and are an ideal choice for a wide variety of business uses from storage space to assembly lines. They are suitable for flat surface, lightweight goods like cartons. Since each wheel operates independently from the next, they are also used for curvilinear conveyor segments.
Gravity rollers are a more suitable option for heavier objects, and can also convey irregular package surfaces in addition to standard boxes. Rollers don't spin as rapidly as separate skate wheels, so roller configurations can be employed for accumulation applications where skate wheels are not suitable.
Flexible Powered Conveyor
Warehouse loading docks are bustling places that have many functions, from unloading trailers to loading individual cases onto delivery trucks. Compact, flexible, modular conveyors are the perfect way to improve efficiency on your loading dock while maintaining versatility.
In most modern warehouse operations, maximizing storage space is a top consideration. When not in use, these conveyors can be almost fully collapsed, making a much smaller storage footprint as opposed to other options.
Power conveyors can also boost ergonomic comfort and safety. By making an unimpeded line between the loading dock and the endpoint of a permanent conveyor, these systems promote ergonomic benefits for your employees, slash the number of injuries, improve safety and boost productivity.
Roller conveyors can be ordered in a variety of roller widths, from 1.5-1.9 inches. They are fully height adjustable, enabling you to put them to use for different types of vehicles and applications. Featuring a load spec of nearly 100 lbs/foot, these conveyors are an optimal solution for many different categories of SKUs.
Powered options offer variable speeds, from 0-120 feet per minute. Stop and start controls are mounted on both ends of the conveyor so that they can be controlled from both sides. They are also furnished with heavy duty castors and brakes, so they can be easily moved but securely locked in place when required.
Flexible conveyors are suitable for a wide variety of industries, including distribution centers, e-commerce, beverage and grocery distribution, retail, manufacturing, third-party logistics, parcel post and more.
