Gravity Conveyor Rollers | Rulmeca


Unit handling through gravity conveyor rollers

Gravity conveyor rollers are modular components specifically designed for the construction and functioning of idle roller conveyors. These material handling systems are made by a series of rollers supported by a carrying structure, designed to handle packages and unit items exactly by means of thrust or gravity, rather than power sources. Therefore, gravity conveyor rollers are easier to be installed and entail energy saving and low purchasing and maintenance costs.

Since it’s the natural force of gravity that allows for conveying materials, the right slope of the system is enough for gravity conveyor rollers to move and start the transportation of materials. Other elements need to be calculated and determined before installing gravity conveyor rollers: the dimensions, the support or contact surface and the weight of the items to be handled, as well as the environmental conditions of the specific application field.

To meet all possible needs, Rulmeca catalogue counts different types of gravity conveyor rollers, all realized with highly selected materials such as steel and polymers. The selection covers various application possibilities: the handling of light, medium and heavy loads ranging from a few grams to tons, in any internal and external environment.
