Six reasons why warehouses should have at least one expandable conveyor Dec 01, 2021

Sometimes the simplest pieces of equipment are the most valuable. We’re often designing and installing custom engineered conveyor systems that have total project costs in excess of USD $1 million in factories. But did you know that one of the best value and most flexible pieces of warehouse productivity equipment sells for under $1,000? The equipment is an expandable or flexible conveyor. You’ll see them in use on loading docks, within stocking aisles and in lots of places in most well run warehouses and industrial facilities.

Expandable conveyors have amazing versatility and flexibility.They have adjustable height and you can connect them end to end. When you need to use it,you could set up a mini assembly line or loading system anywhere.And then put them out of the way when you don’t need them.

We’d like to show the six reasons why expandable conveyors are found in use in most warehouses, distribution centers and industrial facilities:

1.Gravity provides the power

There’s no motors or cables with these conveyors. By setting up the leg height at the loading end 3 – 12″ higher than at the unloading end, gravity does the work.

2.Straight or curved Both

The unique design of the rollers and support means that these conveyors can be twisted into a 30 degree curve for each unit. The more conveyors you join together the greater the curve that you can achieve. This is great for use on the side of loading docks where it might be helpful to have a curved conveyor available.

3.Easy to set up, easy to store

Community organizations and food banks love these conveyors because they are so easy to store when not in use. Expandable conveyors for food banks can also be easily loaded into a van or pickup truck for fast set up at temporary locations.In warehouses you will commonly see two or three units available at each loading dock to help improve team productivity.

5.Sides guides not required

As if by magic, the cartons or tote on the conveyor track around the corner by following the path from one set of rollers to the next. This ingenious capability means that your product won’t end up dropped on the floor!


The strong heavy duty frame and roller system can support up to 360 kilograms. Packages can weigh up to 60 kilograms per meter. This weight range conveyors >90% of all warehouse material handling requirements. And because there are no motors and no cords to trip over, they are very safe. Wet, dusty or dirty environment? No problem. The wheels are sealed.

The skate wheels on the top of our expandable conveyors are able to be used for most packages and tote bins. Plan on having the load rolling on at least two rows of wheels at all times. This helps ensure that the products move smoothly down the conveyor. And when setting up the conveyor, be sure to use the standard locking casters and adjustable leg height locking system at all times.
