Gravity Roller Conveyors

Gravity Roller Conveyors

Perhaps the oldest type of conveyor around; it is thought that a crude form of Gravity Roller Conveyors where used to build Stonehenge, and possibly even the Pyramids !

Consisting of a roller, spinning on internal bearings, and mounted on a support frame (usually with legs), the gravity roller conveyor is the cheapest and simplest of all the conveyor designs.

It works best with rigid, rectangular boxes of uniform size and shape. However, it CAN work with more irregular shaped containers. It definitely is NOT good for transporting jelly, however.

Gravity conveyors CAN form curves and bends, though they require tapered rollers or a twin-track arrangement to make this successful. Even then, it STILL can't transport jelly !

A related conveyor type - often used to complement Gravity Roller Conveyors - is the roller-ball table. This allows products to move at 90-degrees to the direction of travel, and can be used as a junction point between multiple Gravity Roller Conveyors.
