Our roller conveyor systems are an essential component in material handling and transportation systems. They offer a cost-effective solution for moving products from one point to another within a factory or warehouse and are especially useful in situations where material flow needs to be controlled. One of the primary benefits of roller conveyors is the ability to move products safely, securely, and efficiently. Unlike powered conveyors, which rely on motors or engines to move materials, roller conveyors use the force of gravity to transport products. This means that there is less chance of equipment failure, as there are no complex mechanical parts that can break down. Gravity conveyors are also incredibly versatile and can be used at any stage of an assembly line operation. Another key advantage of roller conveyors is their affordability. They are typically much cheaper than powered conveyors, which can be quite expensive due to the need for motors, drives, and control systems. This makes them an ideal option for businesses that need to move products through processing and packaging lines without breaking the bank.
Choosing the Right Components:
When choosing conveyors for your workplace it’s important to consider the size of the objects that need to be moved. The roller pitch, which is the distance between roller centres, is determined by the size and weight of the products being transported. The pitch should be chosen based on the minimum size of the products that will be transported on the conveyor. It is also important to consider the weight of the products, as heavier products may require the rollers to be closer together or additional support legs underneath. At MHS, we offer a wide range of gravity conveyors from top manufacturers. We also have the ability to custom-build a system for the unique purposes of your operation. Our team can help you determine the right conveyor for your needs, whether you require a simple straight-line conveyor or a more complex system that includes curves and inclines. One popular type of roller conveyor is the gravity roller conveyor. This type of conveyor uses rollers that are spaced out along the length of the conveyor, and relies on the force of gravity to move products. Gravity roller conveyors can be used to move virtually any type of product. They are also useful for applications where products need to be manually loaded onto the conveyor, as they can be easily pushed or pulled along the rollers. Another type of conveyor is the gravity skate wheel conveyor. This type of conveyor uses small wheels, or skate wheels, that are mounted on axles and spaced out along the length of the conveyor. Skatewheel conveyors are typically used for lighter products and are especially useful for curved or spiral conveyor lines. They are also easy to install and require minimal maintenance. Roller conveyors are an inexpensive and effective solution for transporting products through processing and packaging lines. They offer a wide range of benefits, including safe and efficient material flow, affordability, and versatility. When choosing a gravity conveyor, it is important to consider the size and weight of the products being transported, as well as the specific requirements of your operation. At MHS, we offer a range of conveyors and can custom-build a system to meet your unique needs.
