Flexible Conveyor | Grand Junction


Flexible conveyor systems enable you to move conveyor entry or exit sites by altering conveyor sectors according to ever-changing needs during your business hours. These expandable conveyor solutions are often utilized in e-com facilities or loading docks where trailers are loaded and unloaded. A single conveyor solution can be used to serve several loading dock positions.

Flexible Gravity Conveyor

Flexible gravity conveyor systems are set up with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and are offered in a range of capacities and widths, from lightweight systems for less demanding use to heavy duty options suitable for use in distribution centers and other intensive operations.

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

Steel skate wheels offer many benefits and are a great choice for a wide variety of enterprise applications from assembly lines to storage space. They are appropriate for lightweight, flat-bottomed items like cases. Because each wheel turns independently, they are commonly employed for arced conveyor sections.

Gravity rollers are better suited for heavier items, and can also accommodate uneven package surfaces in addition to standard boxes. Rollers don’t spin as quickly as discreet skate wheels, so roller beds can be used for accumulation applications where skate wheels aren’t the right fit.

Flexible Powered Conveyor

Warehouse loading docks are hectic areas that function in a number of capacities, from unloading trailers to loading individual cases onto delivery trucks. Flexible, compact, modular conveyors are the ideal way to maintain versatility on your loading dock while improving efficiency.

In most modern warehouse operations, storage density is a dominant concern. When not in use, these conveyors can be compactly folded, creating a far smaller storage footprint versus the alternatives.

Power conveyors can also enhance safety and ergonomics. By making an unimpeded line between the loading dock and the ingress point of a permanent conveyor, these systems create ergonomic benefits for your employees, reduce the risk of injury, improve safety and enhance efficiency.

Roller conveyors are available in a variety of roller widths. They’re fully height adjustable, permitting you to put them to use for different types of vehicles and applications. Featuring a payload capacity of nearly 100 lbs/ft, these conveyors are perfect for many different categories of SKUs.

Powered conveyors offer variable speeds. Stop and start toggles are positioned on both ends of the machine so that they can be operated from both sides. They are also furnished with sturdy castors and brakes, so they can be easily maneuvered but solidly stationed in place as necessary.

Flexible conveyors are appropriate for a wide variety of sectors, including e-com, distribution centers, retail locations, food and beverage distribution, manufacturing, third-party logistics, package service and more.
