Flexible Gravity Conveyors provide an easy, portable assembly line using manual force and gravity to transport boxes, containers, and other flat-shaped items quickly and efficiently.

How far will the product need to travel? What is the distance from load and/or unloading point to the destination?
What are the transported product’s dimensions? Will they fit on the conveyor?
How big is the spending budget?

Frequently Asked Questions
What are flexible conveyors?
Flexible conveyors, sometimes called expandable conveyors, are flexible flat top chain conveyors and wheels.
Flexible conveyors allow any work environment to receive or distribute goods despite the layout. Special expanding and contracting features make both navigating corners and storage a seamless task. The system can expand into a single or curved line. When not in use, flexible conveyors can retract becoming small and compact so as to take up less floor space.
Flexible conveyors are also portable and can be moved from one location to another from plant floors and loading docks to assembly ports and storage rooms. They are also perfect as temporary conveyor lines.
Is there more than one type of flexible conveyor available? If so, how are they different from one another?
Yes, there are two types of flexible conveyors, flexible gravity conveyors and powered flexible conveyors.
Similar to traditional gravity roller designs, flexible gravity conveyors use manual force to move packages. They provide an easy, portable assembly line that uses the pull of gravity to transport boxes, containers, and other flat-shaped items.
Powered flexible conveyors use a small motor to move the belt at a steady pace. With expanding and contracting capabilities, shipping and receiving, warehouses, distribution centers, and assembly lines can move faster.
How can my company benefit from using flexible conveyors?
Nearly all businesses benefit from the adaptability of flexible conveyors. They make any loading and unloading, shipping and receiving, less labor intensive and time consuming. Because they can be more easily configured than traditional conveyors, they have better ergonomics. This can decrease worker fatigue and potential injury, and speed up production, packaging, shipping and receiving operations across various industries.
