Welcome to our Heinrich Brothers!
So you woke up today determined to learn something new, and that something happens to be the difference between various wheel rail conveyors. If that’s the case, then you’ve certainly found the right page.
What follows are the basics on wheel rail conveyors . Each conveyor type has a PDF schematic for download.
Wheel Conveyors—also referred to as “Skate Wheel Conveyors”—are an alternative to non-powered roller conveyors. In these type conveyors, a series of wheels are mounted to a variety of conveyor rail shapes and with various wheel patterns to configure conveyor lanes. These can be one of two types: horizontal push applications or on slight decline angles for gravity flow solutions.
Wheel Rail Conveyors are appropriate when you need staggered or close centers for narrow conveyors. They allow more room for space between conveyors. Wheel Rail Conveyors are an economical and practical way of moving wide product. Less steel is used in such configurations and as we know, less steel = more savings.
You will find yourself working in a true partnership that results in an incredible experience, and an end product that is the best.
