ASI offers telescopic conveyors designed by Stewart-Glapat, which can be operated by one person. Minimize or eliminate the need for a forklift by customizing the conveyor to stand-alone, or integrate it with an existing conveyor or sortation system.
Telescopic conveyors are used to load or unload trucks quickly and efficiently. This style of conveyor uses a boom which extends off of the conveyor and can be directed to where you would like the product to be placed. Products move down the conveyor line and off the boom into their desired storage area. The speed and length of the conveyor can be adjusted and the device can be operated by just one person.
This style of conveyor can convey a large variety of product, from small loose ends, to large containers and odd shaped items like tires and bags. Telescopic conveyors use a flat belt on top of a slider bed, so it is ideal for medium to lightweight loads, and some models can support heavier weight. Telescopic conveyors are a considerable investment, but if used correctly will save hundreds of hours a year on manual labor costs and forklift costs. This unit will pay for itself in a busy warehouse, factory, or storage facility.
Why buy used telescopic conveyor? This is a considerably large investment for a conveyor, with new units costing upwards of $15,000. Our used telescopic conveyors are like new, have been tested, inspected, and cleaned, and are much less expensive than buying new. They will save you time and money if used properly in the right warehouse setting, so call one of our sales team members to help you decide if this is the right investment to make. We will help you find the best conveyor system for your specific application, and we will even provide installation services.
