A curve roller conveyor allows materials to be transported around curves and corners, exploiting all the available floor space of the workplace. These systems are widely used in most unit handling applications, where large production lines or distribution chains require the continuous running of pallets, packages and single items along the entire process.
A curve roller conveyor needs appropriately shaped rollers to adjust to the radius of a curve and to change direction without compromising the regular load movement or the smooth flow of the conveyor.
Rulmeca designs and manufactures the most suitable types of rollers to be installed for the integration of conveyor curves: idle and belt or chain driven rollers of tapered or cylindrical shapes. Different models of these rollers are designed to handle light, medium or heavy loads around curves with a regular flow. Moreover, specifically designed rollers allow for reduced dimensions curves for small packages or products handling in specific applications.
