Roller conveyors

Roller conveyors are material handling systems used to transport loads from one point to another in various industries, such as logistics, distribution and manufacturing. They are designed to facilitate the efficient movement of objects on a series of motorized or gravity rollers.

Roller conveyors generally consist of a solid support structure to which lengthwise aligned rollers are attached. The rollers can be made of steel, plastic or aluminum, depending on the specific requirements of the load to be transported. They are spaced to create a continuous surface on which objects can roll smoothly.

These conveyors can be powered by electric motors, compressed air motors or operate in a gravity manner by exploiting the natural slope of the system. Electric motors are typically used for motorized roller conveyors, providing precise speed and stopping control.

The advantages of roller conveyors are numerous. They enable efficient transport of heavy or bulky loads over long distances. Rotating rollers reduce friction, making it easier to move objects. Additionally, roller conveyors can be designed for specific applications, such as sorting, accumulation, load transfer from one level to another, etc.

Roller conveyors can be used alone or in combination with other types of conveyors to create a more complex material handling system.

Regarding safety, roller conveyors can be equipped with protective devices such as protective covers, safety barriers and emergency stop systems to ensure the safety of operators and prevent accidents.

The different types of roller conveyors

Free roller conveyor:
This type of roller conveyor operates on a gravity basis, exploiting the natural slope of the system to move loads forward. The rollers are arranged to allow objects to roll freely without external power. They are often used for transporting light loads over short distances.

Motorized roller conveyor:
Unlike the free roller conveyor, this type of conveyor is equipped with motorized rollers that propel loads along the system. Electric motors provide the power needed to move objects with precision and control. These conveyors are commonly used for transporting heavier loads over longer distances.

Curved free roller conveyor:
This type of free roller conveyor is specifically designed for transporting loads around turns or curves. The rollers are arranged to create a continuous curve, allowing objects to follow the desired path by exploiting gravity. This makes it easier to move loads around corners without requiring external power.

Curved motorized roller conveyor:
Similar to the motorized roller conveyor, this type of conveyor has motorized rollers that help propel the loads along the curve. Electric motors provide the power needed to move objects in a controlled manner around turns or curves. These conveyors are used when heavier loads or precise speed control are required when transporting around curves.
