Conveyors/conveyor systems that help with transportation and are also used as integrative elements of many operations, are an integral part of internal logistics. The basic types include roller, belt and chain conveyors. The individual types are suitable for various applications, and their use depends on the type of transported material, speed, method of use, etc.
As soon as the goods are unloaded, the reception process begins, along with inspection and storing. In many cases, conveyors are a suitable solution for handling material. Apart from the transportation itself, they can also include other operations, such as control of the number of pieces, measuring of dimensions and volume, or weighing. Identification by barcodes or RFID is essential.
Unloading – loading modules
The process of material (goods) reception is usually at the beginning of the process of internal logistics. In the case of goods on pallets, the unloading is carried out using fork-lift trucks or hand pallet trucks, and it is relatively safe and fast. However, if the goods are in bulk, the whole process of unloading is significantly prolonged. In these cases, conveyors can considerably speed up the process. For unloading delivery vans, withdrawable units are designed in a roller or skate wheel version.
For larger vehicles such as trucks or containers, telescopic conveyors are used, where the length of the withdrawable part is within the range of 4 to 16 metres, and they can be fitted with various accessories. By using this device, one operator is capable of unloading from 800 to 1,200 pcs of items per hour.
Within the delivery of a conveyor system, we also offer the production of accessories, such as a packaging station, work tables, steel constructions, etc. Everything is handled according to the requirements and wishes of the client.
The possibility of automatic sorting is one of the great advantages of conveyor technologies. Apart from the type and dimensions of the transported material, the use of relevant technology is primarily decided according to the requested sorting capacity.
