Flexible Conveyor | Denver


Flexible conveyor systems enable you to reposition conveyor entry or discharge sites by adjusting conveyor segments based on changing requirements throughout your business hours. These expandable conveyor solutions are often put to use in e-commerce operations or loading docks where truck trailers are unloaded and loaded. One conveyor solution can be installed to feed numerous 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 minimal systems for less rigorous use to heavy duty options appropriate for use in distribution centers and other high volume operations.

Although steel skate wheels are most common, these conveyors may also be built with a variety of materials including aluminum, plastic and stainless steel.

Steel skate wheels offer 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 boxes. Since each wheel operates independently from the next, they are frequently used for curvilinear conveyor sections.

Gravity rollers are better suited for heavier objects, and can also convey uneven package surfaces in addition to regular flat-bottomed items. Rollers don’t rotate as fast as individual skate wheels, so roller beds can be used for accumulation applications where skate wheels are not suitable.

Flexible Powered Conveyor

Warehouse docks are busy places that serve a variety of purposes, from packing boxes onto delivery trucks to loading and unloading semi-trailers. Flexible, compact, modular conveyors are the optimum way to maintain versatility on your loading dock while improving efficiency.

In most sophisticated warehouses, maximizing storage space is a top concern. When not in use, these conveyors can be compactly folded, creating a far smaller storage footprint in contrast to other alternatives.

Power conveyors can also boost safety and ergonomics. By creating a direct line between the loading dock and the endpoint of a permanent conveyor, these systems offer ergonomic benefits for your labor force, reduce the risk of injury, strengthen safety and enhance efficiency.

Roller conveyors can be ordered in a variety of roller widths. They are fully height adjustable, permitting you to use them for different types of vehicles and applications. Featuring a load standard of close to 100 lbs/foot, these conveyors are ideal for countless types of products.

Powered options offer variable speeds. Start and stop controls are installed on both ends of the equipment so that they can be controlled from both sides. They are also furnished with heavy duty brakes and castors, so they can be easily relocated but solidly fixed in place as necessary.

Flexible conveyors are appropriate for a wide variety of sectors, including distribution centers, e-commerce, retail locations, food and beverage distribution, 3PL, manufacturing, parcel post and more.
