Gravity conveyors are a versatile and simple transport solution suitable for most industrial environments.
We offer a range of roller materials such as PVC or stainless steel, and also frames in stainless steel or painted mild steel.
Suitable for many applications, these are a low cost unpowered conveyor solution.
24v Motorised Roller Conveyors are a type of powered conveyor, we manufacture these from high quality components.
We offer Fixed Drive in addition to Zoned Zero Pressure options. These powered roller conveyors are available with straights, bends, merges, and also transfers.
Generally these are the ideal solution for carton handling applications.
Lineshaft driven conveyors are an economical transportation solution ideal for warehouse & also distribution environments.
These are a type of powered conveyor ideal for low pressure accumulation.
Suitable for boxes, totes, cartons, and trays.
Flexible roller and skate wheel conveyors are available in a range of sizes for both light and heavy-duty accessories.
Suitable for loading & unloading vehicles or where quick reconfiguration is required
Chain driven roller conveyors are ideal for transporting loaded pallets, and other very heavy items. They are incredibly durable, with a frame manufactured from fully welded steel.
Suitable for heavy duty applications
Heavy duty chain driven conveyors are a robust materials handling solution for especially heavy duty applications, including for transporting pallets. These units are also fully guarded to ensure safe operation.
Suitable for heavy duty applications, including transporting pallets.
Conveyor workstations are the ideal ergonomic operator friendly conveyor addition. Constructed from either painted mild steel or stainless steel and built to suit a wide range of applications.
We offer many additional options or accessories from packing stations to tool storage. This includes integration of IT equipment as required.
The conveyor workstation is generally entirely custom built to suit customer requirements, ideal for process lines, manufacturing, assembly lines and many more industrial applications.
Conveyor Lift Up Access Gates
The lift up gate is used as a pedestrian access gate. Generally used for warehouse pathways or emergency access routes. The gate uses industrial gas springs to support weight of the gate whilst opening. As a result the gate is light to operate. Incidentally it may be possible to use the gate section as a stop. The lift up gate uses a 50mm diameter roller as standard.

Special Application Roller Conveyor Modules & Accessories
Roller Conveyor Bends
These are particularly useful in applications where a straight conveyor line is not feasible, such as in small warehouses or production areas with limited floor space.
Using a curved conveyor, materials can be transported more efficiently around corners, reducing the need for manual handling and increasing throughput.
As materials are transported smoothly around corners, there is less stress on the conveyor system, reducing wear and tear and extending the system's lifespan.
Roller conveyor bends can also be integrated into existing conveyor systems, providing greater flexibility in terms of material handling and layout.
Roller Conveyor bends are a cost-effective way to move materials around corners or to navigate around obstacles.
Roller Conveyor Frequently Asked Questions
Roller conveyors generally consist of a number of rollers mounted within a frame. In the case of a gravity conveyor these rollers spin as the product travels across them, aiding the product in moving forward. The rollers of the conveyor can also be powered, meaning items placed on the conveyor will be pushed forward by the rollers. In either case the roller conveyor makes product transportation simple and also efficient for most industrial environments.
Most commonly transported items include boxes, pallets, crates, totes, trays and also boards. Items being placed upon a roller based conveyor should generally have a flat and rigid bottom, this ensures that the product will not slip in between or sag in the rollers and become stuck.
Found throughout a wide range of industries, roller conveyor systems offer an incredibly versatile, adaptable, and simple to install conveyor solution. This makes them popular with small businesses and large businesses alike.
Roller conveyors can be found in the following industries:
- Food production
- Food packaging
- E-commerce Fulfilment
- Postal Services
- Luggage handling
The basic concept of transporting objects on rollers has existed for thousands of years. It is said that the pyramids were built using a system of wooden rollers to transport the large stone blocks into place.
It wasn't until 1908 however that a patent for roller conveyors first appeared. Hymie Goddard of the Logan Company in Indiana filed the first patent for modern roller conveyor systems.
Several years later Henry Ford popularized the assembly line and the use of conveyors became more widespread.
Automotive industries generally began using powered conveyor lines in the early 1920s which allowed for mass production in their factories, whilst coal miners were using roller systems to transport coal over much longer distances.
During the second world war however, further enhancements and improvements were made to roller systems. This was due to the widespread lack of natural materials, but still an increasing need for efficient production methods. Conveyor rollers were at this point being designed and built using synthetic materials for the first time in history.
Through the years further changes have been made to conveyor systems to incorporate health and safety considerations. The roller system as a result continues to evolve in line with technological advances, meaning they are now more reliable, quiet, and efficient than ever.
Gravity conveyors generally incur a low cost to operate as there is no need for a power source. The items on the gravity conveyor move freely with the force of gravity, or through manual force.
Due to the installation at a decline angle, the products will roll downwards to their destination.
Low maintenance due to the ease of roller replacement, which only is necessary when rollers become seized or damaged.
A gravity roller conveyor can be built to your product specification, and this is advisable for safety reasons. If you place products lighter or heavier than the weight of product for which your conveyor was designed, the transport speed could be sub optimal.
This is a downside of a gravity roller conveyor, that the conveyor speed cannot be controlled. In this situation a powered roller conveyor may be better suited.
A powered roller conveyor allows for transportation of products at variable speeds. It can also cover much longer distances than a gravity roller conveyor.
Powered roller conveyors will commonly be found within the manufacturing industry as they have much higher weight capacity than gravity conveyors.
The length of the conveyor can be split into different zones, allowing for differing speeds in each zone if required.
Through the effective use of speed controls, risks of product damage or employee injury become lessened.
A powered roller conveyor is more expensive than a gravity conveyor, however the versatility and control options do lead to cost savings overall by improvements in efficiency, and a reduction in manual handling.
