Quick Tip of the Month
- 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.
- 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.
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
