We Are Experts In Lineshaft Roller Conveyors
Lineshaft Powered Roller Conveyors are ideal for use where products need to simply be conveyed from one area to another or for back to back accumulation of products.
A lineshaft roller conveyor is powered by a shaft beneath the rollers. These conveyors are suitable for light applications up to 50 kg such as cardboard boxes and tote boxes.
A single shaft runs below the rollers running the length of the conveyor. On the shaft are a series of spools, one spool for each roller. An elastic o-ring belt runs from a spool on the powered shaft to each roller. When the shaft is powered, the o-ring belt acts as a chain between the spool and the roller making the roller rotate. The rotation of the rollers pushes the product along the conveyor. The shaft is usually driven by an electrical motor that is generally controlled by an electronic programmable logic controller. The PLC electronically controls how specific sections of the conveyor system interact with the products being conveyed.
Advantages of a lineshaft roller conveyor:
- Quiet operation
- Easy installation
- Low maintenance
- Low expense
- Safe to work with because of the elastic belts if finger or hair are caught in the rollers
