Mobility Engineering started making gravity roller conveyors more than 40 years ago, and we have stacks of experience in this area, being able to build bespoke conveyors for every customer's requirement.
Gravity Roller Conveyor Systems are used in such instances as conveying trays, slave boards, cardboard boxes, plastic totes, etc., for either, simply transporting from A to B, or for use in Kanban scenarios.
As the title states, gravity means just that, using the force of gravity to move products. There is no power, hence it is simple and extremely cost effective. You can either free wheel the products manually (horizontally) or include a slight decline to allow a fall over a certain distance.
Because Gravity Roller Conveyors are extremely modular they can be utilised in many ways. They can form a crucial role when linked to the end of a powered system, for such purposes as packing and accumulation, or they can actually form full production lines, such as PC Assembly, Bedding, Industrial Batteries, etc.
