This general class of conveyor is
probably the most common style found in manufacturing and distribution
environments. To highlight a few of the styles we integrate :
Conveyor– individual rollers
are driven by twisted conveyor belts coupled to a drive shaft that runs down the
length of the conveyor frame, typically under slung to one side. This
is very flexible style of conveyor known for it’s economies in motors
required, accumulation zone capability and slave driven divert mechanisms.
Very well suited to manufacturing work cell automation and divert intensive
applications in warehouse and distribution environments.
Belt Driven Live Roller
by a common flat belt running underneath the rollers, traditionally in
fairly long straight runs. This style is generally used in
transportation in warehouses where divert and accumulation requirements are
minimal. Variations of accumulation styles are available and diverters
are usually external and independently driven
Chain Driven Live Roller
– driven by a roller chain that closely couples the rollers mechanically,
one to another. Traditionally used with heavy loads where very
positive drive is required such as pallet conveyance or handling metal
components in mass.
Motor Roller Drive Conveyor – this relatively new style uses specialty drive
rollers with self-contained motor. Usually one drive roller powers
several neighboring passive rollers by the means of connecting belts forming
and independent drive zone. This conveyor is extremely well suited
where noise, power consumption and changes to conveyor layout are important.
Self contained motor controllers are often built within the conveyor frames
providing an almost plug and play modularity to the sections.
