A roller conveyor, also called a roller belt, is mainly used to move a product manually, automatically or by gravity from A to B. Not all products can be transported with a roller conveyor. They are mainly products with a firm support surface where the pitch of the rollers is adjusted to the smallest product. The products are mostly boxes and crates.
Types of roller conveyors
A different type of roller conveyor is required for every application or environment. BCK Holland supplies all kinds of custom roller conveyors. View below for part of our range:

Construction of a roller conveyor
The construction of a roller conveyor is quite simple. A roller conveyor consists of a frame in which various rollers are mounted in series. In addition to this foundation, there are countless details and options that make the roller conveyor specific to a particular application. The rollers can be driven in various ways so that this transport system can also be used in (production) automation. With the help of a drive, and possible control, you can also determine the speed of the roller conveyor.
The environmental factors and the product determine the type of roller conveyor. If the environment is dry and a non-food product is being transported, an aluminum or steel roller conveyor is used. In humid conditions and transport of food products, a stainless steel roller conveyor is used.
Partly due to all these factors, no roller conveyor is the same. For example, you can opt for a 24V roller drive roller conveyor, but also for a different type of transport system, such as belt conveyors of chain conveyor.
