Flexible Gravity Conveyor

Flexible Conveyors are a great investment for your shipping and receiving department. These conveyors come in two styles such as power flexible conveyor or flexible gravity conveyor. Flexible Conveyors increase the overall efficiency of your shipping and receiving department. There are many advantages to this category of conveyors. One advantage is the accordion design. This allows for adaptability and lets your workers 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.

Power Flex Conveyor

Power Flex Conveyors give the same function and flexibility as gravity, but with the advantage of power rollers. Typically, power flex conveyors are used in warehousing, manufacturing, package handling, and distribution facilities. Rollers allow the conveyor to move materials with rimmed or uneven bottoms easily throughout a facility. Flexible Powered Conveyors will significantly reduce the time it takes to load and unload trailers/trucks. These powered conveyors will help to eliminate the extra work it may take in moving packages and other workarounds. The ergonomic benefit of installing one of these conveyors in your warehouse or distribution facility is substantial. As flexible powered conveyors will decrease the injury of workers, while at the same time help increase employee safety. All of this will help create an efficient package shipping and receiving workspace. Used flexible gravity conveyors can be set up at a decline and at various angles and bends to have products flow automatically from an area of high elevation to low elevation. They can also be set up horizontally for products to be pushed, which is ideal for areas where products need to be manipulated manually.

Flexible Gravity Conveyor

Flexible Gravity Conveyor offer a cost-effective solution for increasing efficiency and productivity. Flexible gravity conveyors come in skate wheel and roller styles. 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 being used for 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 more affordable alternative as well. The skate wheel style is offered in plastic or steel wheel. There are many different size options for you to choose from and the legs are adjustable to allow you to customize the pitch of the conveyor. Flexible gravity conveyors can be used for more than just loading and unloading trucks. Flexible gravity conveyors are ideal for increasing efficiency in warehouse transportation, order picking, pick modules, and order fulfillment.
