Gravity roller conveyors
Gravity roller conveyors, also called non-driven roller conveyors, are usually used at the end of a production line for buffering products or where employees perform operations on the product. Non-driven are often placed at an angle so that products can roll down by gravity against an end stop. These non-driven roller conveyors are often placed at the end of a line as there is no control over the product as with attached roller conveyors. This type of roller conveyor has no motor and is virtually maintenance-free.
Types of non-driven roller conveyors
Each product or environment requires a different type of gravity roller conveyor. BCK Holland produces tailor-made gravity roller conveyors. The application often determines whether it should be a gravity roller conveyor with aluminium or stainless steel frame. See below for our product range:
