Norpak supplies belt, gravity, and flexible conveyors.

Norpak Handling teams up with major manufacturers to supply leading material-handling systems to Canadian production plants and warehouses. Its inventory includes numerous conveyor types, in all sizes and shapes, to work with a wide range of applications, in sectors ranging from aerospace and general manufacturing to the automotive industry.

Whatever a facility needs for its unique requirements – like a flexible, belt, or gravity conveyor – Norpak can always find an appropriate solution.

Built to accommodate complex layouts

As a major supplier of material-handling solutions, the company holds a broad selection of conveyor models; each caters to specific requirements in an individual environment. Three conveyor types that are among Norpak’s most popular:

  • Belt conveyors – These versatile conveyor types can move items with irregular bottom surfaces and small items. What sets belt conveyors apart is that they contain belts. Rubber belts retain friction in a way that allows transport of items through changes in levels or elevation. Businesses find these conveyors far more economical than they do lowering or vertical elevating models.
  • Flexible conveyors – Built to accommodate the complex layouts of certain environments, particularly food-processing facilities and grocery stores. Their multi-flexing chains allow them to work around obstacles and travel in varying pathways to keep production moving. Another common use for flexible conveyors: loading and unloading packages into or from transport trailers. Powered and gravity flexible units are available. Powered conveyors use motor power sources, while gravity ones use natural gravity.
  • Gravity conveyors – What makes this kind of conveyor stand out is that it depends on gravity to move items over downward includes, without any motorized power. This makes it appropriate for heavier items and those with smooth, rigid bottoms, which can move more quickly downwards without assistance. To work optimally, this unit needs a minimum weight. Each comes with guard rails and end stops, so that operators have more control over production flow. Gravity conveyors are the most economical options for certain items, and Norpak can offer expert advice and assessment on whether this system works for a particular facility.
