When moving materials across a wide space, there are a number of different options which might suit the unique needs of your operation. For small distances, a forklift or man power alone could be enough, but for warehouses that require continuous labour, this method is often unsafe and can be repetitive for workers.
Instead, this material handling situation might be better handled by an expanding conveyor, which lets you easily transport materials, without relying on other, more costly forms of transport.
Expanding conveyors are flexible enough to squeeze into confined spaces, and are designed to be fitted into a variety of different configurations. Their engineering also means that any pallets or goods travelling down the conveyor will immediately adjust to corners or bends, without needing additional supports.
These conveyors can also adjust easily, stretching up to four times their length, depending on the area which needs to be covered. The systems come in a range of different sizes – with fully extended lengths of between 3,700 mm and 7,300 mm.
Sitecraft’s flexible roller conveyors come in two different designs, made up of either single rollers or rows of skate wheels, depending on the nature of the goods you are transporting. Both of these options offer the flexibility and strength necessary to handle a variety of materials, with the steel rollers supporting 200 kg per metre when in use.
