Gravity conveyor moves the world, including all your material handling needs.
These units are, as the name says, non-powered, free-flowing conveyor. They rely on laborers or gravity itself to move materials by a gentle slope in elevation. Suppose a company needs a conveyor to move loads across the floor with minor changes in heights. Gravity conveyor is the most economical and reliable material-handling solutions available. Gravity conveyor comes in three main types: standard conveyor rollers, skate wheel or wheel conveyor, and heavy-duty pallet conveyor. Bed sections come in various widths and lengths with curved sections as well. Depending on the material’s size and weight, we can adjust roller spacing to fit any needs you may have. Gravity can be an excellent option for either light-duty or heavy-duty situations. A gravity-fed conveyor is inexpensive to buy and to operate compared to other types of conveyors. You are not utilizing motors of any kind, whether the newer 24v DC or something else requiring motor power sources. These conveyors work and are very good at moving loads from point A to point B.
Gravity Conveyors have many applications. Here are a few.
- Receiving or loading trucks
- Picking areas
- Assembly areas
- Divert lanes off sortation conveyor
- Pallet or carton storage areas
- Manufacturing facilities
- Being part of a larger, more complex system
