Roller tracks are an integral aspect of both production lines and warehouses. They work by using a combination of ball bearing rollers and gravity to efficiently move goods from one place to another, removing the requirement for continuous manual handling for moving, loading and unloading goods. Various working environments make use of gravity roller conveyors, including retail, industrial and manufacturing plants. BITO’s flexible conveyor sections are available with either plastic or stainless steel rollers for maximum flexibility to our customers. They provide a non-powered option for the internal transportation of goods, offering a green alternative to utilising machinery or forklift trucks.
One benefit of using roller conveyor sections instead of any fixed machinery is that they are mobile and adapt to your needs. The modern workplace is always in flux and space is often at a premium. Being able to move roller conveyors around a site, and assembling them in different configurations, allows a company more flexibility than simply installing a static powered conveyor. Equally, you can insert bend segments into areas that are lacking in direct space, thereby keeping your items moving without the need for powered installations.
If you’re searching for the ultimate option in non-powered flexible roller conveyors, BITO’s roller conveyor lift gates are an excellent choice. These gates, which come with plastic or steel rollers, ensure that the line can be paused, and the track raised, to allow personnel and equipment through the gap. This can be a vital option in small spaces, ensuring that work can continue without disassembling the roller tracks each time. Skatewheel conveyors are another option for those struggling with space: these sections require less pitch to convey products such as boxes and cartons. Ultimately, your workplace requirements will depend upon the nature of your industry and what items you need to convey quickly. BITO has a selection of roller tracks to suit all environments. BITO’s range of heavy duty conveyor systems come with a high load capacity for added effectiveness
