Depending on your type of business, what you’re trying to achieve, what your goals are moving forward, and other varying factors, which conveying system you choose could be crucial to your overall success. But in order to pick one, we feel it’s important to give more information or different types and why it might be a good one for your business, organisation, or company. So without further ado, please check out the below types of conveyor systems.
A belt conveyor system consists of two or more pulleys, with a closed loop of carrying medium (the conveyor belt) that rotates about them. Unlike other conveying means that employ chains, spirals, hydraulics, etc., belt conveyors will move the items using a belt. They’re very popular amongst lots of different types of businesses including those in manufacturing, production, retail, and more. There are many types of conveyor belts which may be more appropriate for your application.
We’re experts in our field and have the capability to fully design and build a bespoke conveyor system for you. This can be customised by type, material, finish, speed, and outcome requirement. All you need to do is get in touch with us to find out more.
Carton and Tote Conveyors
A carton or a tote conveyor is a robust, cost-effective, and very versatile solution for fast transportation of a wide variety of cases, cartons, parcels, boxes, or totes from one location to another. As the name suggests, it’s widely adopted by organisations that handle, ship out, or work with these types of items. They’re great for minimising personal handling of goods and can quickly and safely move goods in all directions.
Gravity Roller Conveyors
A gravity conveyor roller is an unpowered roller that transports goods by using the momentum of gravity. The rollers do not require any power to move your materials – the gravity rollers are fitted into a frame, which is inclined slightly thus allowing items to move through the system.
Modular Conveyor Belts
Modular Conveyor belts are flat belt conveyors and are made up of individual plastic or steel modules usually linked together using joint rods. They’re commonly found throughout production areas and in factories. Our Modular Conveyor Belts are state-of-the-art modular plastic chain conveyor systems. It provides a solid traveling surface for the unit loads, which offers many advantages. Each section of the conveyor is powered independently allowing simultaneous load movement and load building.
Pallet conveyors are often used industrially to transport pallets of goods around. They’re extremely durable and certainly fit for purpose. We have a complete range of pallet conveyors available including; roller, chain, plastic modular, and gravity. They’re accompanied by a wide range of accessories such as transfers, turntables, shuttle cars, vertical conveyors, weight/size checking stations, and palletising equipment depending on the system requirements.
