Heavy Duty, Production-Line Conveyors

The roller conveyors with their double ball bearing zinc plated steel rollers have very little requirement for maintenance as they are a solid construction.  Their modular design makes them easily extendable by adding more sections to the conveyor and the pre-punched zinc plated side frames allow for adjustment in the conveyor spacing where required. 


Roller Conveyors

The roller conveyor stands are either fitted with castors or they can be bolted to the floor.  The roller conveyors can be placed directly on the floor for conveying pallets to ease the strain on workers backs and limbs but the roller conveyor stands, which come in 4 different widths, are height adjustable and support the standard roller conveyor frames.


Flexible, Expanding Conveyors

The flexible conveyors extend and bend to a 90 degree angle.  Their high quality finish, made in Italy makes them a very durable and solid flexible conveyor which allows for greater efficiency and with the flexibility, gives greater production line options.  Ideal where the production line needs to be able to turn a corner and deliver goods smoothly in tighter spaces.


Flexible Skate Conveyors

The flexible skate wheel conveyor is flexible and expandable and is easily stowed away when not in use.   Very easy to move around with the skate wheels on the conveyor.  There are two models available of different lengths, the longest expanding to up to 3700mm.  A great option for warehouse and factory conveying and they can be stowed away making them compact and convenient when not in use.


What are Roller Conveyors used for?

Any of these flexible, expandable or table conveyors are very useful and convenient conveyors for moving stock of various kinds in any industry where goods are conveyed from one area to another such as in the mining industry, parcel handling, pallet handling, sorting, agricultural industry, food production, and scrap yards.  All these industries and more need easy conveyance of their products, whether they be light and perishable or heavy and awkward to handle.


Safety Guarding for Conveyors

Conveyors always need to be safely guarded as there are lots of moving parts, especially underneath the conveyor where workers may be able to access the moving rollers.  Workers need to make sure all clothing, hair and other items are kept well clear of the moving rollers on the conveyors.  Keep areas around the conveyors clear so workers are not liable to trip or fall onto the conveyor.  All the flexible conveyors, and roller conveyors are safe to use with correct training and sensible reliable staff in the operation of these various conveyor types.

What is a Conveyor Production Line?

Conveyor systems allow for quick and efficient transportation of a businesses materials and products as well as being able to move heavy items such as cars down a production line which make them popular in the material handling and packaging industries as well as the manufacturing industries.

What is a Roller Conveyor System?

Simply put, roller conveyors are a form of conveyor belt that utilizes rollers - evenly-spaced rotating cylinders - to allow objects to skate across its surface. They move material from one place to another destination, and often leverage gravity or implement small motors to do so.

What is the purpose of a Roller Conveyor?

Roller conveyors are normally used in environments such as warehouses or manufacturing facilities due to the nature of transporting goods. Using a roller conveyor can add versatility to the type of transfers, diverters, and stops that can be used as part of a conveyor system or automation system.

How many Rollers does a Conveyor have?

They transport stuff from one location to another, frequently utilizing gravity or small engines. The transported material must have a sturdy riding surface supported by at least three rollers.

What are the safety precautions when using a Roller Conveyor?

There are many hazards associated with working at or near a conveyor, including: Rotating parts or pinch points can drag in, crush or entangle Confinement or assembly areas (the area between a fixed object and a moving one) can shear or crush Parts that slide or reciprocate (press down) can crush or shear Items can break or be ejected (thrown from) the conveyor system Items can fall off the conveyor Electrical, fire or explosion hazards When working near any conveyor: Do Wear hard hat and safety shoes. Tie back (and tuck in) long hair. Know the location of the emergency "shut-off" devices and how to use them. Make sure all safeguards and guards including cages, barriers, guardrails, warning signals, and other safety devices that are required are in place and operational. Know how to work near machinery safely. Do Not Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Do not climb, step, sit or ride on the conveyors. Do not alter or remove guards or safety devices. Do not try to remove stuck items or debris until the conveyor is locked out. Do not service the conveyor without following lock-out procedures.

How do I choose the right Roller Conveyor for me?

Conveyor Roller Size Now you need to know what size rollers to choose. You can determine the size you need by considering load and load conditions. Load: If your application features heavy loads, choose larger rollers that meet/exceed the load per roller. Loading conditions: If your application features impact loading conditions, choose larger tubing with a heavier gauge. Load-to-Roller Contact As a general rule, make sure that at least 3 rollers are always in contact with your load. In order to ensure this, you may need to reduce the spacing in between rollers. Set Rollers High or Low Depending on your application, you may need your conveyor rollers set high or low. What is the difference?: High Rollers: High settings place the rollers above the conveyor frame to allow for load overhang. Low Rollers: Low settings place the rollers below the conveyor frame to allow the frame to act as a guard. For low settings, there should be a 1” clearance on each side of the largest sized load to avoid conveyor errors.
