Roller Conveyors

Roller Conveyors


  • Roller conveyors are a type of material handling equipment designed to transport, accumulate, and distribute goods between different points within a warehouse or connect various logistics warehouses or production centers to a company's own warehouses. They come in different types and can be powered by a motor, by gravity, or manually. They offer time-saving benefits and improved repetitive load movement efficiency through pre-plotted circuits, reducing manual handling of the goods.

Application Area:

  • Roller conveyors are used in various industries such as warehousing, manufacturing, package handling, and distribution applications. They are ideal for loading docks, baggage handling, or assembly lines, among many others.

Types & Features:

Gravity Roller Conveyors:

  • Not powered and use gravity, if inclined, to move the product, or manually if mounted horizontally.
  • Can be straight or curved depending on the application and available floor space.

Powered Roller Conveyors:

  • Use powered rollers mounted in frames to convey products.
  • Key specifications include the drive type, roller diameter and material, and the axle centre dimension.
  • Various drive types include belts, chains/sprockets, and motorized rollers.

Flexible Conveyor:

  • Makes skilful use of movement, expansion, and compaction so that floor space required can be reduced remarkably.
  • Can be combined with loading/unloading belt/roller conveyors for truck container warehouse loading/unloading usage.
  • Multiple flexible conveyors can be connected and can be expanded optionally to any length required.
