Different Types of Conveyor Systems. A conveyor system simply takes a product from point A to point B. Over the years conveyors have evolved, along with automation and I.T. the systems that can now be implemented during the product’s trip are almost limitless. Products can vary from tablets and capsules, chocolate bars and frozen sausages up to vehicles in a robotic manufacturing system.
Conveyors are manufactured to offer a way of transporting items from one area to another and range from basic gravity fed rollers through to automated belt drive systems. Our popular telescopic vehicle loading and unloading systems are designed to quickly empty a container for 40 foot truck.
Telescopic Gravity Track Conveyor. A simple arrangement of sections of gravity roller track linked together by sliding transfer sections to provide a useful means of loading and unloading vehicles or moving goods within the warehouse or stores and without the need of power these gravity conveyors can be used anywhere
Industrial belt conveyors. Manufactured in the UK and supplying a wide range of light to heavy-duty models, as well as custom belt conveyors for specialist applications. Belt conveyors are ideal for the powered transport of both uniform and non-uniform loads.
Lorry loaders and unloaders, these conveyors are available in Fixed, Flexible, Powered and Mobile versions and can be tailored to suit your specific requirements. From parcels to mattresses, we have a conveyor to help with the safe and quick loading or unloading of the vehicles, from transit vans to ISO sea containers.
On assembly lines, efficient material handling is crucial to productivity. Since transportation does not involve processing the item, transport times should be minimized. With properly planned material flows, buffer sizes are minimized and thus the WIP (work in process) value reduced.
