Bulk Packaging ConveyingWill the automated packaging conveying system provide good line ergonomics? What are the space limitations in your packaging facility? How much downtime will conveyor installation require? These are a few of the considerations you must balance when choosing a conveying system for your packaging line.

There are three common types of packaging conveying systems that we will compare:

  • Under Floor Chain Drive/Conveying Systems – conveying systems that are installed “below” the floor and convey packages flush against the factory floor
  • Floor Mounted Conveyor Systems – Conveyor systems installed close to the floor but raised slightly off the floor.
  • Elevated Conveyor Systems with Spring Gates – These are conveyor systems installed at taller heights and feature a spring gates to allow passage between parts of the plant
