Quick Tip of the Month

Each month we will provide a quick tip on various subjects in the material handling industry. Watch this area for helpful ideas and shortcuts in maintenance and operation of your material handling equipment.

  1. When heavy total loads must be moved it is best to use a
    conveyor bed with rollers (instead of regular conveyor bed). Heavy total loads
    can be moved without using large motors when a Roller Bed Belt Conveyor is used.
  2. For best belt tracking results on a Belt Conveyor, the overall bed length should be two and a half (2 ˝) times more than the belt width.
  3. When boxes move from Gravity Conveyor to an Incline Belt Conveyor, the box usually stops or hangs up. The box will not transfer, but with a Belted Power Feeder the transfer of the box is positive. The Power Feeder is driven from the main Incline Belt Conveyor by a short chain and sprocket connection.
