Flexible Conveyor | Albuquerque


Flexible conveyor systems enable you to reposition conveyor ingress or egress positions by adjusting conveyor sections according to changing requirements throughout the workday. These expandable conveyor solutions are often put to use in shipping centers or loading docks where trailers are loaded and unloaded. One conveyor solution can be used to serve several dock doors.

Flexible Gravity Conveyor

Flexible gravity conveyor systems are equipped with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and are offered in a variety of capacities and widths, from basic systems for less rigorous use to heavy duty options appropriate for use in distribution centers and other intensive operations.

Although steel skate wheels are typical, these conveyors may also be built with other materials including 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 storage space to assembly lines. They are well suited for flat surface, lightweight pieces like cases. Since each wheel operates independently from the next, they are frequently used for curved conveyor sections.

Gravity rollers are a more suitable option for heavier goods, and can also convey irregular package surfaces in addition to regular flat-bottomed items. Rollers don’t turn as fast as discreet 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 a variety of functions, from loading and unloading trailers to packing cases on delivery trucks. Compact, flexible, modular conveyors are the perfect way to improve both productivity and versatility.

In almost all sophisticated warehouse operations, storage density is a premier consideration. When these conveyors are not in service, they can be almost fully collapsed, creating a significantly reduced storage footprint in contrast to other alternatives.

Power conveyors can also enhance ergonomic comfort and safety. By establishing an unimpeded line between the trailers at your dock and the endpoint of a permanent conveyor, these systems promote ergonomic benefits for your employees, minimize injuries, strengthen safety and boost productivity.

Roller conveyors can be ordered in a range of roller widths. They are adjustable in height, permitting you to use them for different truck heights and applications. With a weight standard of close to 100 lbs/foot, these conveyors are ideal for many different categories of goods.

Powered options feature variable rates. Start and stop controls are installed on both ends of the equipment so that they can be controlled from both sides. They are also equipped with sturdy castors and brakes, so they can be easily relocated but safely fixed in place when necessary.

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