Bearings for Unit Conveyors
Unit conveyors are conveyor systems, often modular, used to transport parts, boxes, and other individual pieces or assemblies around a warehouse, factory or other facilities. They are most often indoors and are relatively slow moving, so speed and operating temperatures are typically not factors in bearing selection. Total rolling resistance (friction), bearing noise, maintenance requirements and personnel safety are more often the features considered when choosing bearings for unit conveyors.
Unit conveyors are also getting progressively more “high tech” with needs for precision speed control and placement of the items being conveyed and integration of weighing and tracking systems into the equipment.
In assembly system, unit conveyor makes production more efficient, rapid and safer. All conveyors in the range are modular in design which together with the extensive choice of ancillary conveyor equipment enables the user to create a tailor made conveyor system to suit their own specific requirements.
