Improve Your Shipping & Receiving Department

April 17, 2017

Flexible Conveyors are a great investment for your shipping and receiving department. This product is a powerless, gravity driven conveyor that transports products throughout the warehouse. They are flexible in that they are designed like an accordion, and collapse and expand to lengths needed for your application. The most typical application for this conveyor is shipping and receiving items. Unlike telescopic conveyor, the flexible conveyor is mobile, easy to move and is perfect for loading and unloading trucks. In addition to its physical benefits, this conveyor is a much cheaper alternative as well. Flexible Conveyor is available in both roller and skate wheel styles. The skate wheel style is offered in plastic or steel wheel. There are many different size options for you to choose from. The legs are adjustable to allow you to customize the pitch of the conveyor.

Flexible Conveyors improve the overall efficiency of your shipping & receiving department. There are several advantages to this type of conveyor. One advantage is the accordion design. This allows for adaptability and lets your team handle various situations with the same conveyor. In addition to collapsing and expanding, the conveyor can be curved to navigate to different areas. When not in use, these conveyors can be collapsed for storage. The decision between plastic and steel wheels depends on the weight and nature of the products you will be transporting.

You can expand the conveyor right into the truck you are loading/unloading to easily move material on and off the truck and cut down on the time and effort it takes drastically. Flexible Conveyor can also be integrated with existing conveyor systems, power or gravity. Our sales team will help you find the right solution for your business.
