Unit handling applications
Thanks to their flexibility and adaptability in usage, rollers conveyors are widely used in numerous industries to manage and improve their logistics. Airports (check-in, x-ray screening, loading and unloading, baggage claim), food and beverage industry, warehouses and distribution centers, e-commerce, packaging and manufacturing facilities are included, due to the nature of the conveyed materials. All these applications deal with products and items that can be handled independently, even in large quantities: baggage, food and beverage, documents and envelopes, boxes, pallets, parcels and customer goods of any kind.
Types of rollers conveyors
Flexibility of roller conveyors also lie in the possibility of realizing different configurations. These systems can be set up to carry out horizontal, inclined and curvilinear movements. Rulmeca ensures all possibilities thanks to a complete selection of rollers which include both basic cylindrically shaped rollers and tapered rollers for curved conveyors. Moreover, roller conveyors can be moved either by gravity or power and Rulmeca production responds to these different demands as well. Our range of products counts gravity conveyor rollers: a cost-benefit solution to use gravity force in the place of a power source to move items. However, gravity roller conveyors may not be the best solution in applications where the transportation of goods over a longer distance is required. Here, powered systems are likely the most suitable solution. To this end, Rulmeca proposes specifically designed components for belt driven roller conveyors and chain driven roller conveyors, as well as the special and innovative concept of RDR drive roller with a sealed integrated motor.
