Your Guide to Incline Conveyors

Your Guide to Incline Conveyors

February 25, 2020

For any large or industrial production facility, one of the conveying systems you may want to consider installing is an incline conveyor. These conveyors can travel upwards or downwards, allowing you to transport product or materials to a higher or lower elevation, and even across floors.


Before you go about finding the right system to install, take note of a few of these considerations first:


1. Incline or Decline

Norpak Handling supplies solutions for applications that require either incline or decline functionality. When choosing systems for your factory, consider whether you will be needing only one type of conveyor or both at the same time. Norpak Handling’s incline conveyors have a reversible option that allow them to double as decline conveyors, meaning you get two types of functionality in one conveyor.


2. Spacing

Once you have determined your needs, you can decide how and where to place your systems. The less floor space you have, the steeper the incline or decline will likely have to be on your conveying system. The systems will also need to be arranged in such a manner that allows for product to flow smoothly without any obstructions.


3. Product Type and Load

Sturdier belts that promote stronger grip will be required for incline conveyors due to the elevation that the products are subject to. On top of that, there is also the factor of products with sharp edges or irregularly shaped surfaces, which will further affect the kind of belt you choose to go with your system. With that said, Norpak Handling offers different kinds of inclined units, including roller bed and angled frame units, which opens up more options for you.


At Norpak Handling, our consultants will make sure that every aspect of your needs are catered to when helping you select the best conveying solutions. Give us a call today to learn more about our products and services!
