How Pallet Conveyors Work
Pallet conveyors handle and transport large, heavy or unwieldly loads. Often positioned low to the ground for better control, products are moved by belt, slats, rollers or chain. Like traditional conveyors, powered or unpowered pallet conveyor solutions offer seamless integration with ancillary pallet handling equipment like robotic palletizers and depalletizers, turn tables, stretch wrappers, transfers, unit load ASRS, pallet dispensers and more.
In addition to conveying products from point A to point B, some accumulation pallet conveyor designs allow for zero pressure accumulation features. Using photo eye-controlled networks of AC and DC motor-controlled zone accumulation, zero pressure (no back pressure) pallet accumulation conveyors help to prevent product damage, prolonging equipment lifespan.
