SPHERE lineshaft conveyor is designed to add transfers, merges, inclines/declines, and curves to your conveyor system. Lineshaft conveyors accomplish this without the need for more drives, which reduces product cost and energy usage.
Lineshaft is the more light duty of the powered roller conveyors, handling products that are typically around 25/30Kg, such as cardboard boxes, plastic tote boxes etc.
Typical scenarios for the use of this type of conveyor are order picking lines/stations, production lines, packaging lines, sortation systems and the simple movement of products from A to B. Lineshaft conveyors are used in applications varying from simple conveying of totes and boxes to back to back accumulation, with little pressure on the leading product. They can easily become zero pressure accumulation systems depending on the application.
