Flexible Conveyor | Colorado Springs


Flexible conveyor systems enable you to reposition conveyor ingress or egress sites by adjusting conveyor sections according to changing conditions during your business hours. These expandable conveyor solutions are often put to use in e-com facilities or loading docks where trucks are unloaded and loaded. A single conveyor system can be used to feed numerous loading dock doors.

Flexible Gravity Conveyor

Flexible gravity conveyor systems are furnished with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and come in a variety of capacities and widths, from minimal systems for less demanding use to heavy duty options suitable for deployment in distribution centers and other intensive operations.

Although steel skate wheels are most prevalent, these conveyors may also be constructed from other materials including stainless steel, aluminum and plastic.

Steel skate wheels include a multitude of benefits and are a great choice for a wide variety of enterprise applications from assembly lines to storage space. They are suitable for flat surface, lightweight pieces like cartons. Because each wheel turns independently, they are commonly employed for curved conveyor segments.

Gravity rollers are a more suitable option for heavier items, and can also accommodate irregular package surfaces in addition to regular flat-bottomed items. Rollers don’t turn as quickly as separate skate wheels, so roller beds can be used for accumulation applications where skate wheels are not suitable.

Flexible Powered Conveyor

Warehouse docks are bustling areas that serve a variety of purposes, from unloading trailers to loading individual cases onto delivery trucks. Compact, flexible, modular conveyors are the ideal way to maintain versatility on your loading dock while improving efficiency.

In most sophisticated warehouse operations, maximizing storage space is a premier consideration. When these conveyors are not being used, they can be compactly folded, making a far reduced storage footprint versus the alternatives.

Power conveyors can also enhance safety and ergonomics. By creating a direct path between the loading dock and the end of a permanent conveyor, these systems promote ergonomic benefits for your labor force, reduce the risk of injury, improve safety and enhance productivity.

Roller conveyors come in a range of roller widths. They’re adjustable in height, allowing you to use them for different truck heights and applications. Featuring a weight standard of up to 100 lbs/foot, these conveyors are an optimal solution for a diverse range of SKUs.

Powered options offer variable speeds. Stop and start toggles are mounted on both ends of the equipment so that they can be controlled from both sides. They are also furnished with sturdy brakes and castors, so they can be easily moved but safely stationed in place as needed.

Flexible conveyors are appropriate for a wide variety of industries, including distribution centers, e-commerce, beverage and grocery distribution, retail, 3PL, manufacturing, package service and more.
