Chain Driven Live Roller Conveyor

Chain-driven roller conveyor systems (CDLR) are sometimes referred to as pallet roller conveyor systems because they are used for pallets as well as wheels, tires, and other products that have a smooth surface underneath.

Single-Stand or Roll-to-Roll (progressive) configurations?

The single-core type is recommended for medium to heavy duty. This type is driven by a continuous chain traveling on sprockets welded to each carrier roller. To ensure that the chain always engages the sprocket, a continuous pressure rod is integrated with the chain guard.
If your conveyor requires frequent starts and stops or reverse operation, a progressive (roll-roller) chain-driven roller conveyor is the best choice. The rollers are progressively driven by loops of chain from one roller to the next. Two sprockets are welded to each roller: one sprocket receives power from the previous roller, and the other sprocket transfers that power to the next roller. Roll-to-roll CDLR conveyors can handle the heaviest loads.

Where Are Chain Driven Roller Conveyors Commonly Used?

Manufacturing, Distribution and Warehousing, Material Handling, Food and Beverage, Retail and E-commerce, Automotive, Mining and Quarrying, Packaging industries

Advantages of Chain Driven Roller Conveyors

Chain driven roller conveyors are ideal for applications requiring pallet handling, curved sections, and medium to heavy-duty transport. They provide reliable and controlled movement for various types of products.

How Are Chain Driven Roller Conveyors Constructed?

Chain driven roller conveyors are constructed with several key components:

  1. Rollers: These are cylindrical tubes or bars that rotate freely on axles. They provide the surface on which products or materials travel along the conveyor.
  2. Roller Chain: A continuous loop of roller chain runs beneath the rollers. The rollers are attached to the chain, and as the chain moves, it drives the rollers, causing them to rotate and move products along the conveyor.
  3. Sprockets: Sprockets are toothed wheels that engage with the roller chain. They are typically located at the ends of the conveyor and are connected to a motor or other drive mechanism. As the sprockets rotate, they pull the roller chain, causing the rollers to move.
  4. Frame: The frame provides the structure and support for the conveyor system. It is typically made of steel or aluminum and includes legs for supporting the conveyor at the desired height.
  5. Drive System: The drive system includes the motor, gearbox, and other components responsible for powering the conveyor. It provides the necessary torque to drive the roller chain and move products along the conveyor.
  6. Guarding: Guards are installed to protect workers from moving parts and pinch points. They help ensure safe operation of the conveyor system.
  7. Supports and Bearings: Supports are used to stabilize the conveyor and prevent sagging or misalignment. Bearings are installed at the ends of rollers to facilitate smooth rotation.
  8. Optional Accessories: Depending on the specific application, chain driven roller conveyors may include additional features such as sensors, brakes, diverters, and accumulation zones to enhance functionality and performance.

What Are Chain Driven Live Roller Conveyors?
