Among the unparalleled selection of material-handling solutions from Norpak Handling Limited is a variety of gravity conveyors. These systems offer numerous benefits, most notably energy efficiency and low capital cost. Using the natural power of gravity to move items simply and reliably, these conveyors have no need for electrical power.
Norpak recommends these conveyor systems for many applications, such as assembly, workstations, work-in-progress tasks, and numerous distribution environments in warehouses.
Roller and skatewheel models
The two primary kinds of gravity conveyors are the roller and the skatewheel models. The roller types are perfect for permanent and temporary lines, and users can integrate them into powered systems to offers a large-scale, cohesive material-handling system. Merely a minimal amount of pitch is required in most cases. Although skatewheel conveyors are also efficient choices, they are more suitable for users who want to move lighter, smaller items, as they tend to be smaller and lighter than full-width roller models are, which makes them easier to rotate. Norpak recommends skatewheel models more for temporary conveyor lines.
Gravity conveyors come in curved configurations as well as in straight lines. Users can add guard trails to the curved sections to boost product protection and stability. Also available are rollers that are tapered to help maintain product orientation around curves. The Norpak team offers a complete range of accessories for these conveyors, to enable various layout configurations; among the most common choices are spur/merge sections, side guards, floor and hanger supports, caster supports (to make sections portable), stops, brakes, and end stops.
