Line Shaft Conveyors

They are safe, consume less energy, and allow the creation of complex configurations at minimal cost. These are all Line Shaft Conveyors.

How does it work?

Line Shaft Conveyors are primarily used for package handling systems. Why? Because a line shaft-driven conveyor is a cost-effective and safe solution thanks to its driving design. They are activated by a metal shaft with a series of drive spools beneath the rollers. Thus, the top rollers are driven by tensioned urethane bands. This is a safe way to move items: if someone puts their hands on the conveyor rollers, the conveyor will simply stop. There’s no chance of you pinching a finger or hurting yourself on the roller.

Benefits you might get

  • You can connect additional sections to one drive with no additional motors. This gives you complex configurations with minimal expenditure on motors and controls.
  • Line shaft roller conveyor is suitable for light loads weighing up to 110 lbs, such as cardboard boxes, etc.
  • Various accessories, such as gates, are available to control product flow.
  • Some models have electrical controls, while others are optional. You have a choice.
  • Line-shaft conveyors typically operate at speeds of 60 feet per minute; depending on the model, it could range from 25 to 120 FPM.
  • Line-shaft conveyors have a modular design, so you can install them with the flexibility needed for the layout.
  • Each conveyor zone operates independently. When the product leaves the upstream zone, it is shut down, and the downstream zone is turned on.
