GRAVITY ROLLER CONVEYOR
Roller conveyors have become essential for materials handling, many businesses utilizing them on a daily basis. Whether operated by power or natural gravity forces, the roller conveyor assists with simple material movement and is suitable for a variety of industries. Wainwright Engineering Services recognizes the importance of the roller conveyor, and manufactures both powered and gravity roller conveyors in standard and customized models.
Productive material movement is Wainwright Engineering's ultimate goal, which is why we have engineered a variety of Master built roller conveyors to ensure this goal is achieved. All roller conveyor systems are manufactured utilizing latest technologies and will move a variety of items in an efficient, timely manner. Wainwright conveyors are simplistic, functional machines and provide a safe solution for materials handling at all levels.
To move your materials with ease and efficiency, look no further than Wainwright's conveyor systems.
Wainwright's Powered Roller Conveyor
Wainwright specializes in the design and construction of a range of power roller and gravity conveyors, providing standard and customised models. A Wainwright Powered Roller Conveyor is powered by either line shaft or chain and sprocket, designed to move your materials with ease. All conveyors and conveyor systems at Wainwright Engineering are engineered to provide reliable and cost efficient solutions.
Wainwright powered roller conveyors are suitable for a variety of applications and will provide reliable, maintenance free operation. Wainwright's engineers can design and manufacture these conveyors for Heavy, Medium or Light Duty and will ensure they suit each business' intended use.
Wainwright powered conveyors compete with those on an international level and can be custom made or manufactured to standard. Wainwright also has the expertise to engineer general parts and conveyor equipment to ensure quality material movement is achieved.
Why Powered Rollers?
Without powered conveyor systems, materials handling would be difficult and time consuming for businesses. Depending on the type of materials that need to be moved, powered roller conveyors can have significant advantages over other, traditional conveyors. Aside from this conveyor being a fast and effective mode of transportation, a powered roller conveyor can provide a number of benefits to your business. This includes:
- Differing product zones - with tailor made conveyors you can move, sort, divert and transport goods at varying speeds. These conveyors can sort your materials into differing product zones via straights, curves and V or Y shaped junctions. In addition to sorting in differing product zones, roller conveyors enable you to speed up and slow material movement when required.
- Low conveyor pressure - with a custom designed powered conveyor, you can ensure the conveyor isn't working overtime. Wainwright can customize the conveyor to include specially engineered clutches, fitting them onto the body of the roller.
- Multi-directional - with powered roller conveyors you can move your products in more than one direction.
Wainwright's Gravity Roller Conveyor
Wainwright Gravity Roller Conveyors are manufactured in various sizes; differing in length and width, roller diameter and pitch. All Wainwright conveyors and parts can be purchased directly from us, the manufacturer, ensuring a unified solution.
In addition to standard conveyor units, Wainwright gravity conveyors can be manufactured for Heavy, Medium or Light duty according to your business requirements. Wainwright offers custom manufacture and design, allowing for material movement of different shapes and sizes.
Gravity or powered conveyor rollers and equipment can be purchased in separate units, or Wainwright can engineer a conveyor based on your specific requirements. The economical gravity conveyors can be purchased in the skate wheel version, allowing maximum product accessibility. All Wainwright conveyor systems are self-contained and slim lined; the simplistic designs offering a cost effective and simple material transport solution.
Why Gravity Rollers?
Unlike powered rollers, gravity rollers produce movement via natural forces. As these conveyors require no power, they are an economical material solution and are used in many industries for their overall simplicity and maintenance ease. Mounted in a simple, yet effective frame, the gravity conveyor utilizes free running static rollers constructed from steel, stainless steel or plastic. Wainwright has the expertise to engineer conveyor rollers to meet your conveyor requirements and duties. Conveyor parts and equipment is available in standard design, but can also be customized for overall convenience.
Aside from simplicity and cost, gravity roller conveyors have many benefits including:
Controlled speed - instead of using automated powered rollers, the speed of the gravity rollers can be easily controlled by specially designed breaks.
Suitable for any environment - these conveyors are suitable for products in any environment. Hard and flat bottomed products work best with this conveyor as the structure allows for differing product weight. The weight of suitable products can start as little as 10kg and range up to 1000kgs.
Horizontal and downward movement - as conveyor rollers are not power driven, product movement relies on gravity, allowing movement to occur both horizontally and in a downward pattern. The gravitational pull allows products to move unassisted.
