Lineshaft Powered Roller Conveyors

A lineshaft powered roller conveyor system is designed to be one of the more light duty of all of the powered roller conveyor systems. A lineshaft powered roller conveyor can typically handle around 25 - 30 kilos of product, which can include boxes, plastic totes and similar objects. They are generally used in simple conveying situations or in back to back accummulation. 

Typical Uses of a Powered Lineshaft Roller Conveyor

  • Order picking lines
  • Barcoding and sorting systems
  • Packaging lines
  • Production lines
  • General movement of products from A-B

Lineshaft Powered Roller Conveyors are perfect for warehousing and packing situations where products will arrive to be packaged into boxes for shipping.

Lineshaft Powered Roller Conveyors are Economical

The rollers are powered from a drive shaft which is mounted beneath the rollers and which extends the full length of the conveying bed. The rollers are driven via elastomer belts. The conveyor bed can include straights and curves where tapered rollers are used. 

Lineshaft Conveyors provide an economical solution to conveying and accumulating items with a firm base. The rollers are powered from a drive shaft - mounted beneath the rollers and extending the full length of the conveying bed - and are driven via elastomer belts. Accumulation occurs via the design of the conveyor system, a shaft which is driven by an external motor doesn't drive the belts directly, but turns inside a nylon spool.
