Gravity Roller Conveyor

A gravity roller conveyor moves materials and products without a motor power source, usually down an incline or on a flat surface with a person pushing the item across it. Because of this, they are one of the most economical material handling solutions when used in the right application. They are designed to handle a wide range of sizes and weights of items, including boxes and cartons, which have firm bottoms.
