In the informative article “Types of Roller Conveyors” from IQS Directory, this article sheds light on the diverse world of roller conveyors, categorized into powered or motor-driven roller conveyors and gravity roller conveyors. Gravity roller conveyors, the simpler of the two, operate with products manually pushed along the roller surface, utilizing gravity for movement. A leading player in conveyor solutions offers insights into these conveyor types:
Gravity Roller Conveyor: The fundamental form consists of a frame with rotating rollers, support legs, and utilizes gravity for material movement. These conveyors, made from steel, aluminum, or plastic, are cost-effective for transporting light to medium-weight loads. Their adaptability is highlighted by features such as curves, slide rails, supports, hanging brackets, sensors, and pop-up stops.
Belt Driven Live Roller Conveyor (BDLR): Powered by a motorized belt, BDLR conveyors offer precise control over material movement. The motorized belt enables functions like halting, turning, side unloading, slide loading, and reversal. BDLR conveyors, with power-driven belts, provide the flexibility to move materials vertically and around curves, showcasing a commitment to efficiency and innovation.
