Gravity conveyors moves the load without utilizing motor power sources, usually down an incline or through a person pushing the load along a flat conveyor. Gravity conveyors transport products or work in process from one work area to another. A gravity conveyor can utilize skatewheels or full rollers.
Gravity conveyors are the most cost effective and versatile materials handling solution. Loads are conveyed on rollers, skate wheels or ball castors. These conveyors are usually slightly sloped to allow the product to flow freely by means of gravity.
Some conveyors are fixed to the ground while others are mobile allowing the conveyor to be moved to where they are needed.
Roller conveyors use cylinders on axles to move products down the line. The rollers and axles have very low friction so that it takes very little gravitational force to make the rollers rotate. These conveyors are ideal for heavy-duty loads and are more suited for flat-bottomed objects
