Belt Driven Live Roller Conveyors (BDLR Conveyors) are a variable pressure roller conveyor.
The rollers are driven by a belt underneath the rollers carrying the product. Belt Driven Live Roller (BDLR) Conveyors are ideal for case conveying requiring variable pressure accumulation. Thomas Conveyor and Equipment offers seven different models to help fulfill your needs.
Light Duty Belt Driven Live Roller (Roach Model 138LR)
Ideal for horizontal conveying of light objects and products where there will be side loading and unloading, and transfers. Industries that are best suited for the Roach Model 138LR BDLR Conveyor are warehouse & distribution, order fulfillment, aerospace, and many more!
Light Duty Belt Driven Live Roller Curve Spur (Roach Model 138LRCS)
This is the best option for product diversion or for merging loads of cartons, totes, fixtures, and more. Due to the gravity roller spurs, this model is ideal for use when many conveyor lines must transfer on to one main conveyor line. This model is also best suited for industries like manufacturing, warehouse, order fulfillment, and parcel handling.
Medium Duty Belt Driven Live Roller Curve (Roach Model 196LRC)
Great for maintaining product orientation due to the tapered rollers. A tapered roller gives a true conveying surface on a curve, giving the correct radial speed along the entire length of the roller. This model is also reversible and can save you money because there are fewer gear motors required.
Heavy-Duty Cam Adjusted Live Roller (Roach Model 251CALR)
Perfect for horizontally conveying heavy loads such as tote pans, castings, drums, and more where side loading and unloading, and transfers are required. This model is also suitable for loads that contain oil or contaminants. The CAM adjusted BDLR conveyor is great in applications that will benefit from high speed or heavy loads and rollers can pop out when required.
Medium Duty Belt Driven Live Roller Curve Spur (Roach Model 196LRCS)
Also great for product diversion or merging unit loads, similar to the Model 138LRCS. Rollers in this conveyor are driven by one another using high tensile O-rings.
Medium Duty Cam Adjusted Live Roller (Roach Model 196CALR)
Also great for package handling where they can be side loaded or unloaded, and for temporary accumulation. Our cam-adjustable rollers are very easy to adjust the amount of pressure the belt uses on the carrying rollers. If the application or product changes during the life of the conveyor, the tendencies of the conveyor can easily be adjusted by anyone.
Light Duty Belt Driven Live Roller Curve (Roach Model 138LRC)
Features tapered rollers to maintain product orientation similar to the Model 196LRC. This specific model is great for conveying round or odd-shaped products from a single lane to multiple lanes. This diverting conveyor ensures product quality and accuracy.
