Skatewheel conveyors are rugged conveyors ideally suited for many roles from packaging and flexible assembly lines.  to loading and unloading of trucks and containers. The conveyor is easy to move around on heavy duty castors and simply compacts to a quarter of its size when not in use. They are very easy to quickly manoeuvre in or out offlexible skatewheel conveyor trucks for more efficient, safer, easier loading and unloading.

What's the difference between a typical roller conveyor and a skatewheel conveyor we hear you ask? Good question. There are three answers.

1. The conveyor will compress to a smaller length than a normal roller conveyor when closed.

2. The weight of the skatewheel conveyor is less than a full roller version, making it easier to handle.

3. Sometimes, but not always, with packages that are not totally flat on the base, skatewheels are more forgiving and allow better movement.

Whether you need a flexible roller conveyor available every hour or just a few times a week, these units will help you to reduce vehicle turn around and thereby increase productivity.
