Roach Vertical Gravity Spiral Skatewheel Conveyors are an ideal choice; they provide space savings, move lightweight product efficiently, provide merging, pick modules and product accumulation capabilities.
Roach Vertical Gravity Skatewheel Spiral conveyors are non-motorized. The metal or plastic free-spinning wheels of skatewheel conveyors allow products and packages to be moved manually with minimal effort, or with a Gravity Spiral, the conveyor pitch allows for gravity to propel product downward. These conveyors are called skatewheel conveyors because the rollers on the conveyor resemble the wheels on roller skates. These wheels are equally spaced along the length of the conveyor so that every box and package is supported by more than one row of wheels. Packages are protected during transport with railings on each side that also help goods stay centered on the conveyor. 90° spiral skatewheel conveyors are also supported by 4 structural poly-tier style supports for a drop of over 15’.
