Gravity Roller Conveyors

As the name of this type of conveyor suggests, a gravity roller conveyor means just that - it uses the force of gravity to move products along the conveyor. 

There is no power used on a gravity roller conveyor, hence it is a simple and extremely cost effective option for small or large businesses. You can either free wheel the products manually (horizontally) or include a slight decline to allow a fall over a certain distance.

Gravity roller conveyors are modular and they can therefore be used in many different ways. They can be added to the end of powered conveyors where they can be used for the packing process or accumulation. They can also be used as part of full production lines.

Gravity roller conveyors can be used in many instances, such as conveying trays, boxes, plastic totes and the majority of packages and items with flat bottoms. They are also ideal for Kanban systems. Kanban is a Japanese term meaning “signal”.  The term is widely used today, worldwide, to denote a form of replenishment signal used to transmit information generally regarding the movement or production of products.
