Quick Tip of the Month

  1. If a guard rail is used to guide boxes, caution should be taken. If too many boxes, especially heavy boxes up against the guard rail they will overload the drive. This is because the drive must now overcome the friction of boxes against the rail. In this case, a skatewheel rail face may be considered, especially on heavier boxes over 20 lbs.
  2. An “X” roller designed, trough rollers are sometime used where items cannot be placed on a horizontal conveyor. This will help to contain the item being conveyed. When doing this, always maintain six rollers under the product being conveyed.
  3. Boxes moved by a belt conveyor should not exceed the overall width of the Conveyor. Also, boxes of poor quality should not exceed the width of the belt since box edges may drag on sides of conveyor.
