Norpak Handling Ltd. supplies an unmatched variety of material-handling solutions, including a line of case conveyors. These systems are typically used to move high volumes of cases of various products in the most economical way, which makes them the ideal pick for larger plants and warehouses. Norpak offers these conveyors in a broad range of sizes, shapes, and functions, and customers can configure them to accommodate their own unique requirements.
Gravity or portable options
Available in a diverse lineup to suit varying needs, Norpak’s case conveyors can be enhanced with such accessories as rollers, skate wheels, belts, chains, or wire mesh. Two of the most popular types are gravity conveyors and portable conveyors. Gravity conveyors are simple, inexpensive models with lightweight constructions. Portable conveyors are recommended for lighter-duty applications, and users can fold them into compact configurations to store them. Customers should select extendable solutions if their specific applications include the process of loading and unloading cases from trailers and containers; these systems are easy to extend, raise, or lower.
Among the many key benefits of using case conveyor systems to manage the flow of cases are reduction of forklift traffic and of manual labour. In addition, users can easily integrate extra technological features into these conveyors, in order to make the whole process more automated and therefore less vulnerable to human error. For instance, automatic sorting and merging – a vital operation in larger warehouses – can be automatic. Businesses can use case conveyors for all distribution channels and for process buffers, due to their high flexibility. The systems also can be used in conjunction with other material-handling technologies in shipping or processing tasks.
When shopping for a case conveyor, a business should take a number of factors and specifications into consideration. The most important factors include load capacity, accumulation logic, conveying speed, case feet per minute, throughput, width, frame configuration, and drive location. With decades of experience with many conveyor manufacturers, the Norpak team can walk every customer through each step to help locate the most appropriate solution that covers all relevant bases.
