Not only can transporting heavy boxes be a daunting task, but a slow moving and back-breaking process that greatly reduces productivity in your warehouse. Eliminate hard physical labor and utilize skate roller conveyors for moving your products from point A to point B quickly and easily. With the ability to simplify nearly any industrial application, skate roller conveyor systems prevent injuries and reduce tedious labor. Gravity will do all of the work for you!


What are Skate Roller Conveyor Systems?

Skate roller conveyor systems, also known as flexible gravity conveyors, have a unique and flexible design that allows them to expand, contract, and bend around any corner or obstacle in your way, all while using gravity to move your product quickly from point A to point B.

The length of conveyors is virtually limitless, as they can connect to each other to travel a further distance. Not only this, but they can be combined to create a wider surface area to transport large products. Conveyors come in lengths anywhere from 8’ to 36’ to meet the needs of nearly any job. Gravity rolling conveyors expand up to four times their collapsed length. Their skate roller design combined with the power of gravity keep boxes from falling off while moving around any curve or bend, making the conveyor safe and easy to use to transport heavy products. They have a capacity of 226 lbs. per linear foot.

Skate roller conveyors simplify loading and unloading processes in a variety of applications. They are ideal for transporting heavy items between stations, in and out of truck containers and other shipping areas. The best part about flexible conveyors is that they are portable. They allow you to create a temporary conveyor line when needed, and make reorganizing or restructuring your processes a breeze. They are easily transported anywhere in your facility as they all stand on wheels that lock into place when you’re ready to put your conveyor to use.


Advantages of Skate Wheel Conveyors

Facilities that use skate wheel conveyors have seen optimized operation and much more efficient material flow. There are many advantages of flexible conveyors, including:

  • Easily transport heavy materials around machinery
  • Adapting production lines is a simple process
  • Eliminate time spent manually transporting heavy materials
  • Steel construction for maximum durability and strength
  • Minimize employee injuries by cutting out physical labor
  • Customizable—adjusts to fit the specific needs of your facility
  • Great for creating packaging lines by connecting two or more conveyors
  • Improves shipping and receiving processes
