Lean Gravity Conveyor Workstations

Gravity roller conveyors are ideal for the inclusion into assembly or order fulfilment work stations. Including the use of roller conveyors results in the reduction of manual handling, and subsequently the improvement of personnel working ergonomics.

The workstation can also include packing aids, scales, lighting, and IT equipment, and as a result yields additional productivity improvements.

These units are designed to suit your specific requirements. Ideal in this case to improve productivity and ergonomics whilst also reducing operator manual handling, giving ongoing payback on your investment.

Gravity storage roller racking

Gravity roller racking provides an ideal solution for assembly cells and also order fulfillment lines. It is up to 80% more productive compared to conventional static racking.

The use of Carton flow racking also allows staff to be more productive by reducing manual handling. As a UK manufacturer Spaceguard is able to build first in first out, or push back racking, to suit your specific products.

Special use gravity roller systems

As well as bespoke roller conveyors, Spaceguard also manufactures products for managing waste fluids. For example, coolants and oils.

In this area Spaceguard has many years of experience. We also deliver solutions which safely and cleanly manage liquids within your production areas.

Previous uses include for example, aircraft wheels, and machined engine parts. Also for paint production, and oil manufacturing. Delivering to you robust special application roller conveyors which especially suit your needs.

Flexible conveyors

A wide range of Flexible conveyors are also available from Spaceguard.  These are suitable for use within loading areas of warehouses for example.

All flexible conveyors are built with a high quality steel lattice frame, together with a choice of skate wheels or full width conveyor rollers.

Conveyor lift up gate

Conveyor pedestrian access lift up gates

The conveyor lift up gate. Allows for access through fixed conveyor lines. These are generally for warehouse pathways or emergency access routes.

Spaceguard lift up gates are manufactured using a pivot bush. Giving additional strength to the gate. The weight of the gate section is supported by industrial gas springs. This as a result makes the gate light to operate. When positioning the gate - note should be taken to the product on the conveyor. To ensure it doesn't fall off.

Incidentally it may be possible to use the gate section as a stop. This section of roller track should also only be used in horizontal applications with either gravity or driven roller.

Gravity roller conveyor cross section

The Conveyor rollers used within Gravity roller conveyors ordinarily have a spring loaded shaft for easy removal, or a female threaded shaft.

What is a Gravity Conveyor?

A gravity conveyor is an un-powered roller conveyor which uses either manual force, or gravity decline to move products along the conveyor. As a rule, when used on an incline the product must have sufficient weight to allow the conveyor rollers to turn. Additional braking may be required if particularly heavy loads are used.
