Powered Conveyor

An Energy Efficient Means of Conveying

In today’s progressive manufacturing and distribution environments, designing conveyor systems can be a difficult challenge. Complex problems often need to be solved. Now there is an innovative and advanced engineering solution that meets the demands of a new age in production automation and flexibility.


Belt Conveyor brings increased efficiency to applications such as assembly lines, sorting, inspection and transportation. Belt conveyors provide a versatile means of handling a wide variety of products from bulky boxes and bundled items to furniture, wood sheets, totes and packaged goods.


Chain Driven Live Roller (CDLR) Conveyor is ideal for transporting loaded pallets, tires, drums, or other heavy items. The welded construction makes it durable enough to handle the harshest conditions. The sprocketed rollers and roll to roll chain system provide positive driving power. Build to order lengths and widths are a standard offering.


Lineshaft Driven Live Roller Conveyor is optimal for conveying light products (15 lbs./roller) at speeds of 25 to 120 FPM. They are designed for flat-bottomed, evenly distributed loads, such as those found in distribution and warehousing, food packaging and parcel handling. One motor can power up to 100 feet of conveyor, reducing costs of power consumption, installation and maintenance.


Zero Pressure CDLR is a chain driven live roller conveyor divided into individual zones. These zones can be individually driven by a motor and gear reducer in each zone or by a series of pneumatically engaged clutches that are powered from a common drive. ZP-CDLR allows multiple products to travel downstream in singular fashion with each product separated from the others. This can be critical in applications where one at a time release into a special zone is required such as a stretch wrapping zone or inspection station. This style of accumulation also protects fragile products or loads from bumping into one another.


Modern powered roller conveyor systems use motorized rollers which can be directly integrated into the conveyor frames. With their compact size and quiet, safe operation the 24 volt motorized rollers that power these systems have become the dominant type of conveyor systems in use in today’s high speed warehouses and distribution centers. With sensors and controls, these powered roller conveyors also make sure packages don’t get damaged by crushing against each other. MDR conveyors will be found handling a multitude of products such as bags, batteries, glass, tires and consumable goods and parcels.
