Pallet Conveyors

Automating the movement of pallets around warehouses and factories has multiple benefits and helps moving towards a fully automated facility. PACKMACHINE can design and install both modular and bespoke pallet/stillage handing solutions suitable for moving anything from empty single pallets up to 2 ton loads in simple transit or accumulation modes and can also be utilised for feeds to and from production/finishing areas, palletisers as well as storage, whether this is traditional pallet storage or automated storage/retrieval. Our systems integrate with other peripheral equipment such as wrappers, hooders, strappers, labellers etc.

Automating the movement of pallets has plenty of benefits including:

  • Can integrate as a Hybrid or full automation with AGV
  • PACKMACHINE controls systems (WCS) can interface with clients WMS for a more intelligent approach
  • Reducing forklift truck movements thus lowering costs and increasing safety
  • Reducing pallet transit costs and provides better utilisation of labour resources
  • Providing constant pallet transit/feeds
  • Live and offline Pallet accumulation
  • Most pallet/cage weight/sizes accommodated
  • Lower maintenance compared to forklift trucks

Systems can be based on modular designs to provide a simple and cost effective scheme or alternatively, a bespoke solution can be proposed for applications such as handling non-standard pallets and cages or for harsh environments such as cold stores/outdoor use (-27°C)

Systems can include:

  • Accumulation Roller Conveyors
  • Pallet Dispensers/Stackers
  • P & D stations (Pick and Deposit)
  • Elevators & Lowerators
  • Palletisers
  • Pallet condition checks including weigh stations
  • Chain conveyors

Gravity Roller Pallet Conveyors

Gravity Roller Pallet Conveyors

Gravity roller pallet conveyors are a type of unpowered conveyor. As such manual force or gravity is required to push the pallets over the rollers. Gravity pallet conveyors have heavy-duty rollers mounted within a frame which sits off the floor. It is important to have some sort of braking control so that pallets can be stopped at any point for safety purposes.

Chain Driven Roller Pallet Conveyors

Chain Driven Roller Pallet Conveyors

Chain driven roller pallet conveyors are ideal for transporting loaded pallets, and other very heavy items. They are incredibly durable, with a frame manufactured from fully welded steel. This type of roller conveyor is positively driven through the use of chains. These chains attach sprocketed rollers to one another which keeps each of the rollers turning consistently with no loss of friction. These conveyors are available in a wide range of widths, lengths, and heights to suit almost any sized pallet for most applications.

Pallet Conveyor Turntables

Pallet Conveyor Turntables

Spaceguard manufacture both manual and automatic pallet conveyor turntables. Turning on 90° or 180° angles dependent on whether the turn table’s used to change the pallet orientation or to turn corners. Within a conveyor system. These units can be supplied as stand alone conveyors, or incorporated within a turn key conveyor system.
