Machined Pipe Rollers with End Bearings and common Shaft mounted on Side frame at certain pitch through the length.
This conveyor offers good support for the bottom surfaces of the items to be transported. Therefore, those with irregular surfaces, such as drums or older cartons and boxes, or items too loosely bagged to transport well on gravity wheel conveyors, can all be transported on the gravity roller conveyor. These items will move smoothly as long as the bottom surface of the item does not conform to the shape of the rollers. Items may be manually pushed along this conveyor or the conveyor may be inclined to allow the force of gravity to move the items.
Gravity Roller Conveyors are built on slight inclined. Since there conveying power is simply the force of Gravity. The inclination depends upon the type of material that is being used. When the material is placed on the conveyor, the roller revolve, thus moving the material in the direction of incline.
BUDGETARY CONTROL Gravity systems are used as a cost effective method of conveying goods over a given area. This incorporates low expenditure coupled with low maintenance costs to provide an effective handling of materials or products. The simplest gravity tracks immediately eliminate the fetching and carrying element of work to enable more effective use of man hours.
DESIGNDue to our extensive manufacturing experience we treat every project as a single entity, and design each system to your requirements. Therefore factors such as weight and dimensions of goods (to assess the width and capacity of the rollers), surrounding environment, usage, area and requirements are all interlinked to provide an efficient and profitable scheme. Depending on the product, the system can be manufactured with various types of materials such as mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, zinc coated or galvanised to prevent damage or rusting of the conveyor.
ADAPTABILITYAll systems can be designed for the application or adapted to suit the project, eg, the stands may be either bolted to the floor for stability or on a suitably braced subframe with castors for manoeuvrability. The supports may be either a fixed height or adjustable to allow for declines. Gravity systems can also be supplied in skatewheel form. Flexible conveyors are also extremely useful in situations where production levels change or machinery is moved. Using flexible conveyors enables you to develop your own custom made working environment.
ROLLERSThe rollers are the critical component of the gravity conveyor and are manufactured to many specifications, dependant upon the application. Tapered rollers or split parallel rollers are used for curvatures and bends and may be deigned to suit the project. Rollers can be mild steel, stainless steel or plastic, rubber coated, zinc coated or galvanised. The spindles may be spring loaded, stub axles, drilled and tapped or turned down with a male end thread.
