Using Rollers for Gravity Conveyors

A gravity conveyor is a type of conveyor system that uses gravity to help move the products on the conveyor from one place to another. In general, a manufacturing plant has two choices when it comes to the conveyance method on a gravity conveyor. The plant can choose a wheel-based system or a roller-based system. Most manufacturing companies choose wheel-based systems for the cost-effective price tag, but there are some cases where a roller system may provide additional advantages over a wheel system.

Gravity Conveyors Explained

Industrial conveyors come in all shapes and sizes. There are polyurethane conveyors, chain con veyors, belt conveyors, sliding conveyors, and even gravity conveyors. Each type of conveyor is ideal for handling a different type of transportation based on the needs of the factory where it is used. One of the most fascinating forms of industrial conveyors is the gravity conveyor. Rather than using a power source or motor to move the conveyor along, gravity conveyors are simply powered by gravity. This makes them efficient, inexpensive, and easy to maintain. Gravity...

Gravity Conveyors: A Portable and Friendly Design

The variety of conveyors available on the market today allow most industrial manufacturers or shipping industries to pick and choose a design that suits their needs perfectly. Although the speed of a conveyor system powered by a motor is suitable and preferable for some situations, the quiet and simplicity of a gravity conveyor is more appropriate for others. As a non-motorized version of the conveyor systems that move items from one point to another, one would think this system would have gone extinct. Instead it has found a niche in... Read More

Weighing Material Flow with Gravity Conveyors

Weighing materials as they travel through a factory is extremely important for most manufacturing companies around the world. Without accurate measurements and weights, a factory would be unable to determine production ratios for manufactured products or measure materials for direct sale. Many companies must use machines and processes that are multi-functional, such as transporting and weighing a material at the same time for future use. One measuring system that works especially well with gravity conveyors is the solid flow meter system. The solid flow meter can easily determine how much... Read More

Gravity and Gravity Conveyors

Most of us are fairly familiar with conveyors. Even those of us that may not see them being used in their industrial settings will have seen conveyors working in the checkout lines of grocery stores. Conveyors are a common piece of material handling equipment that is used for moving products, packages, food, equipment or other items from one place to another. While at the store this might be from the pricing area to bagging, in industries this could be from one part of a facility to another or possibly through... Read More

Gravity Conveyors

Gravity conveyors are a type of material handling equipment that is non-motorized and uses gravitational forces or momentum to assist in moving products, packages, foods or equipment from one place inside a facility to another, or through various stages of automated manufacturing or finishing. Less expensive than powered conveyors, gravity conveyors provide minimum pressure accumulation as well as being portable and lightweight. Gravity system manufacturers are creating innovative solutions to new manufacturing challenges every day.

New technologies for gravity conveyors offer increasing affordability, are more user-friendly and lower required maintenance. New gravity conveyor technology includes modular gravity conveyors, which offer greater flexibility than standard gravity conveyors, and air-activated gravity conveyors, which combine the design and structure of pneumatic conveyors. Gravity conveyors are typically used for applications requiring ease of rotation and transportation such as distribution, warehousing, material handling, food processing, shipping, manual assembly receiving and production. Industries that benefit from gravity conveyors include packaging, industrial manufacturing, pharmaceutical, automotive, aerospace and large parts fabricating.

Gravity conveyors can either stand alone, feed other conveyors such as continuous vertical lift conveyors or be integrated into a complete conveyor system. Gravity conveyors use gravitational forces to gain momentum by placing the conveyor on an incline, enabling products to move on the gravity conveyor without the use of motor power. Gravity conveyors have two main types; gravity roller conveyors and gravity wheel conveyors. Gravity roller conveyors convey products horizontally along a pathway containing a series of rollers that are placed perpendicular to the direction of travel for movement and are supported on shafts by bearings. Formed or structural punched frames contain these shafts by either retaining pins or internal springs. Since the roller conveyor is driven by gravity, the product can be free-wheeled manually (horizontally) or the product can be allowed to fall over a certain distance with a slight decline. Gravity wheel conveyors, or gravity skatewheel conveyors, are very similar to gravity roller conveyors, but instead of a roller pathway, products follow a pathway of wheels. Gravity wheel conveyors allow for less accumulation at minimum decline angles than gravity roller conveyors and are typically lighter-weight; as a result, they are generally used for lighter load weight applications.
