Gravity conveyors are designed for most types of manufacturing and material handling systems. Our gravity conveyor systems some of the most efficient in the industry, both mechanically and economically. Quite often gravity conveyors need to be modular and flexible so they can be moved around to suit current needs as your plant grows or is upgraded to meet changing conditions.
The personnel gate provides a minimum opening of 900mm for personnel access through long conveyors. A gas filled strut is attached to the bed to assist the operator in safely raising and lowering the gate.
