Roller Conveyors

Roller Conveyors

Adept Conveyor Technologies have made an art-form of manufacturing Roller Conveyors. Every unit we produce is a shining example of the very best in Australian engineering. 

High quality components, excellent engineering design, broad industry experience going back decades and benchmark manufacturing raise Adept above the crowd – we are industry leaders and you should talk to us about your conveyor requirements.

Roller conveyors are the backbone of businesses around the world. They are reliable, affordable, flexible and extremely practical. Adept provides a huge range of options to meet all possible requirements.

  • Manufactured and designed in Australia
  • premium quality components
  • industry-best manufacturing – we make everything twice
  • the manufacturer advantage: Quality & great price
  • full engineering system design support 
  • Extreme reliability and easy maintenance
  • full range of options, materials and accessories

OVERVIEW

Roller conveyors suit any application that deals with flat-bottomed objects like boxes and tote bins. They are rugged, reliable, cost-effective and practical.

  • Gravity & powered
  • Chain drive (including timing belt, micro groove V-belt and belt under roller)
  • Line shaft drive
  • Motor-roller drive (for high tech accumulation)
  • bends, merges, junctions, gates, cross-overs & turntables
  • Accumulation and buffering
  • steel, pvc, Polypropylene and Stainless Steel rollers
  • Standard modules available ex-stock
  • monitoring, sorting, tracking measuring and weighing equipment
  • control hardware and software

Accumulation & Buffering

All powered systems allow for some accumulation or buffering, although chain-driven (including timing belt drive and micro-groove “V” belt drive) and Belt-under-Roller systems are better than line-shaft driven systems.

Chain driven roller conveyors can provide “low pressure” accumulation of product via the fitting of specially engineered friction clutches fitted into the body of the roller. Using this style of conveyor allows for goods to be transported, stored and released as required for further processing.

We now have newer methods for this conveyor that use timing belt drive and micro-groove “V” belt drive in lieu of chain drive in certain specific applications.

Magnetic roller – accumulation conveyors are a unique design of Chain Drive rollers, which feature an integral magnetic clutch built within the roller assembly. Used in heavy load applications such as pallet conveying where non-contact “Zero Pressure” (non-contact) accumulation of pallets is required.

Due to the design application when handling heavy loads, this unique product enables relatively small capacity drive units with minimal power outputs to be employed within the conveyor design, saving energy costs.

Belt under roller conveyors can be designed for “low pressure” accumulation or full “Zero Pressure” accumulation where it is desirable for each product on the line to be accumulated without any adjacent product imparting line pressure onto it.

The “Zero Pressure” conveyor is built to provide many product zones that are controlled via sensors that detect products on the conveyor. Each zone acts independently of the adjacent zones on either side of it ensuring that only one product is stored in its respective zone on the conveyor.

This latter style of conveyor is the premium solution where a low maintenance trouble free storage (buffering) solution is needed between manufacturing cells or for marshalling prior to palletising or dispatch functions.

Hi-tech accumulation is now also available in a unique conveyor style that uses independently driven Motor-rollers with inbuilt DC drives, which connect to adjacent rollers within the zones using round belt, timing belt or Micro-Groove “V” belts. Control of these new styles is carried out using in-built PCBs and can be hard-wired or connected to system controllers using Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) or PC based controllers.
