Expanding conveyors manufactured with PVC rollers conveyor rollers offer a high impact tube, with a low point of inertia, this provides a quick rotation speed.
They are highly adaptable in applications, involving small to medium weight products, picking, and packing, warehouse, eCommerce, and/or end of line accumulation.
Straight PVC flexible conveyors are particularly useful with products requiring additional support beneath the product, where a skate-wheel would not suit the application.
Expanderveyors with PVC rollers offer a reasonably priced flexible conveyor with the addition of an increased weight capacity.
They are flexible in their usage being the ideal introduction to material handling. This allows customers to make the most of the conveyor's versatile nature and trail conveyor handling and accumulation within many parts of the business from one unit.
Investing in a piece of equipment with this type of flexibility can be a key determining factor, aiding decision making when considering further advancements in material handling and conveyor systems.
The expanding conveyor range is manufactured using high-grade mild steel latticework. Steel parts are bright zinc plated for a durable and aesthetic finish.
Supporting stands offer a tubular construction, which allows for a large telescopic adjustment while maintaining the stability of the unit large or small.
For expandable conveyors over 400mm, a central lattice set will be supplied for additional support below roller spindles. On Units over 700mm, a second lattice row will be available depending upon the application.
Latticeworks are manufactured using a riveted design, this enables a lightweight and highly maneuverable framework. The lattice works are built in sections up to 12 holes, which is the standard sectional length between supporting stands. Reduced lattice lengths and knee bracing are available, increasing the conveyors supporting structure for heavier duty applications.
Accordion conveyors come fitted with 50mm Ø PVC rollers with BZP ball bearings.
PVC tubes are fitted with free-spinning push-fit roller bearings. Rollers are fitted withing the lattice with a male threaded steel spindle AND 10mm PVC covering protecting the spindle.
Rollers are fixed into the lattice framework at regular intervals using a domed fixing. This provides a fixed axel eliminating spindle rotation in addition to providing a safe and aesthetic looking finish.
Rollers are simple to maintain by replacing spindles and tubes where required quickly and effectively.
PVC tube rollers offer a non-marking solution for applications where finished products will travel along the roller conveyor.
Supplied in a Black PVC extruded plastic, bearings can also be supplied in stainless steel in addition to the standard BZP finish.
