We are a leading supplier for Roller Conveyors in the state of Wisconsin. We have the knowledge, skill, and experience to help you implement a new Roller Conveyor system into your existing production or transportation facilities with as little cost and downtime as possible.
A Roller Conveyor is composed of a series of metal cylinders designed to spin with as little friction as possible, spaced at a consistent interval. By adjusting the height of support structures to create tilt in the rollers, as well as moving and removing rollers to adjust spacing, a Roller Conveyor system can be modified to accomodate a wide variety of potential uses.
If you need to minimize energy costs, move products in a controlled free fall as they are assembled, or allow your production staff to control the pace of production with little hindrance, Roller Conveyors could be a great choice. They can be placed on an incline for automated movement if space allows, and in the case of manual movement allow human-generated force to move packages and materials with minimal friction.
Roller Conveyors are useful for moving a wide variety of products and materials, such as Cases, Wire Bins, Wood Boxes, Canisters, Blocks, Drums, Cans, and Lumber. If you have questions regarding your specific implementation, please don't hesitate to give us a call!
Most Roller Conveyor systems involve frames which hold the rollers fixed onto supports which can be moved and replaced. Each roller typically has its own axle. Because these axles are typically spring-loaded so they can be moved to adjust spacing, they can also be easily replaced over time as they wear.
Belt Driven Roller Conveyors are used primarily for transporting cases and other equivalently sized objects across distances on a level plane throughout your storage facilities. Belt Driven Roller Conveyors are extremely useful in cases where energy usage is less of a concern, relative to use-cases where a Gravity Roller Conveyor may be preferable.
Chain Driven Live Roller Conveyors should be used when it is necessary to transport loaded pallets and other similarly heavy loads across your storage or production facilities in as efficient a manner as possible. Other possible uses for Chain Driven Live Roller Conveyors are tires and drums, but any narrow enough heavy load is sufficient cause for the use of a Chrain Driven Live Roller Conveyor System.
