How are roller conveyors powered?
18th May 2022When you need to transport goods over a longer distance, a powered roller conveyor is likely the most suitable product.
Due to being powered systems, they can move goods horizontally over a long distance within an efficient time.
The speed can be controlled so there is full control over the process, and this helps reduce risk due to full control.
A powered roller conveyor has the benefit of being able to handle heavier loads, a reason why they are commonly used in the manufacturing industry.
The powered roller conveyor system can be split up into zones meaning that each zone can be individually controlled which allows each zone to only run when an item is present helping in reducing cost and improving efficiency.
This, again, reduces risk as if a motor breaks or the power supply to one zone has stopped, only that zone will stop and the remainder of the system can carry on.
