About Conveyors

A conveyor is a vital part of any high traffic warehouse facility. It can dramatically increase your picking and storing efficiency, which can save you time and money in the long run. Warehouse conveyors are valuable in big warehouses because they effectively speed up the transportation of items throughout various zones or areas. There are two main distinctions of conveyors: power and gravity. Both types of conveyor systems contain many different styles, each with a specific purpose suited to your unique material handling needs. Compared to the manpower of workers, gravity-powered or motor-powered conveyors are faster in transporting items, so they get to where they need to go effectively.

About Gravity Conveyor

Gravity conveyor is much less expensive to purchase than power conveyor, and is also easier to maintain. As a result, gravity conveyor is an excellent choice if you are looking to upgrade your material handling operation without spending a lot of money. However, it is important to consider where your conveyor will be located in your facility, and how it will be utilized in your material handling operation. Due to the powerless nature of gravity conveyor, it might not be the right fit for you.

Gravity conveyor, as the name implies, relies on gravity to transport inventory items from location to location throughout your facility. Because they are gravity-powered, they can only operate on a decline or a level surface. Gravity conveyor is ideal for manual sortation, as workers have access to products on the conveyor line. This type of used conveyor comes in many different styles, including skate wheel, roller, and flexible. Each of these types of used gravity conveyor are designed to be able to handle different products and maneuver in different ways.

About Power Conveyor

Power conveyors are more expensive than gravity conveyors, but for good reason. Because power conveyors use motors to move materials along the line, they can transport products up inclines, as well as on level ground and declines. There are various types of power conveyors such as belt conveyorsbelt over roller conveyors, and lineshaft conveyor.

Power conveyors are a great way to increase the efficiency of your operation. In addition to transporting materials throughout your warehouse, some conveyors such as sortation conveyors can automatically sort products as they move down the line based on their weight.

As you can see, there are many different ways to utilize the various types of conveyor in your warehouse facility. The amount of options you have may seem overwhelming, but ASI has over 30 years of experience providing material handling solutions for our clients. Our sales team will work with you to determine the proper types of conveyor system for your facility. We buy quality used conveyor systems that have been tested, cleaned, and inspected. Our sales team then figures out exactly what problems you are having to decide which type of conveyor is right for you. Contact ASI today.

Advantages of Used Conveyors

Conveyors offer several advantages in various industries and applications. Here are some of the key advantages of using conveyors:

  • Increased Efficiency: Conveyors are designed to move materials or products from one location to another, eliminating the need for manual handling or transportation. This automated movement increases productivity and efficiency by reducing the time and effort required to transport goods.
  • Enhanced Safety: Conveyors can help improve workplace safety by minimizing the need for manual lifting, carrying, and pushing of heavy items. By automating material handling, conveyors reduce the risk of injuries and accidents associated with manual handling tasks.
  • Cost Savings: Conveyors can lead to significant cost savings in terms of labor, as they eliminate or reduce the need for manual transportation and handling. With automated conveying systems, businesses can optimize their workforce and allocate human resources to more skilled or value-added tasks.
  • Flexibility and Versatility: Conveyors come in various types and configurations, allowing for flexibility in accommodating different materials, product sizes, and production layouts. They can be customized to suit specific requirements, enabling efficient handling of a wide range of products and materials.
  • Improved Product Quality: Conveyors can contribute to better product quality by reducing the risk of damage or contamination during transportation. Controlled movement and gentle handling provided by conveyors help protect fragile or sensitive items, ensuring their integrity throughout the production process.
  • Space Optimization: Conveyors can be designed to fit within existing production layouts, optimizing the use of available space. By utilizing vertical or inclined conveyors, businesses can efficiently move materials or products between different levels, maximizing floor space and overall efficiency.
  • Consistency and Reliability: Conveyors offer consistent and reliable transportation of materials or products, reducing variability and improving process control. With automated systems, businesses can achieve predictable and repeatable results, leading to better overall production outcomes.
  • Integration with Other Equipment: Conveyors can be seamlessly integrated with other equipment and machinery in the production line, creating a cohesive and interconnected system. This integration enhances overall operational efficiency and enables smooth material flow across different processes.
  • Scalability: Conveyors can be easily scaled up or down to accommodate changing production needs. As businesses grow or adapt to new requirements, conveyor systems can be expanded or reconfigured to handle increased volumes or different types of materials.
  • Environmental Benefits: By optimizing material flow and reducing manual handling, conveyors contribute to sustainable practices. They can help minimize energy consumption, decrease waste and product damage, and support eco-friendly initiatives in industries.
