Hanters roller conveyors for light weight goods are often used for transportation of parcels, boxes, trays, etc. for weights up to 100 kg/m.
The roller conveyor can be powered or unpowered. Normally belt driven roller conveyors are used in warehouse and logistics applications. In the manufacturing industry it is often recommended to use chain driven roller conveyors for optimal function.
Typical applications for roller conveyor systems are assembly lines in the manufacturing industry, packing and sorting lines in e-commerce, third part logistics, etc. or where there is need for storage/buffering capacity.
In packing and sorting lines, pushers or timing belt transfers are often used to transfer the package to the right sorting direction/sorting conveyor.
