Roller Conveyor is a type of Conveyors with a series of rollers supported in a frame over which objects are advanced manually, by gravity, or by power.A roller conveyor is a conveyor that consists of a series of parallel rotating bars that move goods along to their end destination. Roller conveyors are used in environments like warehouses and manufacturing facilities. These conveyors are containing sprocket at one terminal and a bearing housing at other. A roller shaft runs through the rollers, which are mounted on the extruded aluminum rails.
Roller conveyors are the proper choice when you need to side load, push off, accumulate a product or adjust pressure on carrying rollers. Roller conveyor types are chain driven, belt driven, line shaft driven, accumulation, or non-powered (gravity). Using roller conveyors instead of slider bed conveyors adds versatility to the type of transfers, diverters and stops that can be used in a system. Rollers are available in mild steel, galvanized, plastic or stainless steel.
