Used Skate Wheel Conveyors

used skatewheel conveyor

Skate wheel conveyor systems are lightweight and economical. Skate wheel conveyors are perfect for transporting medium to lightweight packages. This conveyor has a steel design for maximum durability that uses gravity to move materials without utilizing motors. The design is ideal for cartons, totes, and other packages with a flat, smooth bottom surface. Used skate wheel conveyors help to reduce the time spent physically transporting materials, while also decreasing worker injuries by lessening physical labor. These types of conveyors are great for creating packaging lines as well as improving receiving and shipping processes. Unlike other conveyors the skate wheel design is easy to set-up and tear-down making them portable and highly versatile. Ideally this conveyor is the perfect solution for shipping/distribution departments, assembly lines, and stocking areas. Its ability to turn independently allows for the option of adding curves to the conveyor system. ASI offers used skate wheel conveyors that require minimal pitch to keep products moving.

Used skate wheel conveyor is a very simple and cost effective way to transport product without using additional power. When compared to gravity roller conveyors, skate wheel conveyors require less pitch to convey the product, which means it can go farther distances with less of an elevation change. The skate wheels provide more contact points with the product, meaning less energy is needed to turn the wheels. This also means that the product will maintain orientation when maneuvering curves.

The wheels on skate wheel conveyors are available in 75 to 100 lb. capacities in zinc, aluminum, and plastic. Because of the density of the skate wheels, much heavier loads can be placed on the conveyor. The skate wheels are raised above the conveyor frame, allowing for products to be wider than the frame itself. It is recommended that you do not exceed the conveyor’s frame width by more than 25%. The frame must be able to support both the skate wheels and the load itself, and are typically available in 5-10 foot support centers. Additional supports would be required for anything exceeding the frame's support center capacity.

There are a few limitations to skate wheel conveyors. Products need to have a flat bottom to be transported on a skate wheel conveyor. This is because of the gaps between the skate wheels, which cause the product to either fall through or lose orientation and fall off the conveyor. In these situations, a gravity roller conveyor would be more appropriate.
