Slat Conveyor for Irregularly Shaped Product and Heavy Duty Conveyance Applications
The Roach Model 608SL, Heavy Duty Slat Conveyor conveys unstable, irregularly shaped objects and those products with problem bottom surfaces.
Slat conveyors do not allow product to nest against each other or accumulate, as the product is typically held in a fixed position relative to the slats.
Model 608SL Heavy Duty Slat Conveyors are used in horizontal conditions and operate at relatively slow speeds. They are generally used to move items that are not typically conveyable on rollers or belts, due to an irregular shape or bottom condition. They can also be used in assembly operations by modifying the slats to accommodate assembly fixtures. the 608SL is commonly used in appliances and furniture handling and assembly line operations where product moves at a slow rate of speed through several operator work stations. Slat conveyors consist of endless chains, driven by electric motors operating through reduction gears and sprockets with attached spaced slats to carry objects that would damage a belt due to sharp edges or heavy weights.
