Gravity Conveyors and Flat Bottomed Boxes
One of our most successful and popular conveyors is the non-powered gravity roller conveyor, and we have a great video here showing the gravity roller conveyor in action. One very useful and interesting point about these particular conveyors is how they are used with boxes and totes! Anything which does not have a flat and level bottom can be a problem with a gravity roller conveyr as can be seen below. See how the "good box" glides easily and quickly along the rollers, whilst a more battered and mishapen box will bump between the rollers and even come to a standstill.
Gravity roller conveyors can still be used to transport items which are odd shapes or in bags as long as these can be put into suitable boxes or flat bottomed totes.
