Roller Conveyors

Roller conveyors are the most versatile and economical conveyor available in material handling. Available in gravity or powered sections which can be suitable for straight long runs or complex configurations. Powered Lineshaft Roller Conveyors run with fewer drives compared to conventional powered equipment. Another unique advantage is the number of ancillary modules which can be driven from one motor by means of couplings and universal joints. It is also modular and can easily be reconfigured to meet current and future demands. Full system design, mechanical and electrical installation can be provided along with software and easy to use operator touch screens.
