At Hills Electrical, we know our conveyor systems. From screw to spiral, roller to robot, we’ve implemented many state-of-the-art solutions. Overhead conveyors are no exception.
Overhead conveyor systems are the ideal solution, maximising floor space, improving productivity and lowering operating costs in warehouse and factory environments.
After initially assessing your workspace, our team will design and install bespoke overhead conveyor rail and track solutions. No specification is too big or small for our expert team.
What is an overhead conveyor?
As the name suggests, an overhead conveyor is a material handling system that transports products above ground level. Being positioned up high, these systems evade all ground-level obstructions, following a continuous path that can move up, down or side-to-side.
With such flexibility, overhead conveyor solutions enable facilities to function at their full potential. Contrary to belief, the overhead conveyor design is not as complicated as you may think. Most commonly, they function through the movement of a chain, from which overhead conveyor trolleys hang, holding individual products.
This feature of an overhead conveyor makes them perfect for transporting fragile goods that would usually get damaged on traditional conveyor belts. They’re popular solutions in industries such as machinery, textiles and packaging. Yet, the technology does not limit itself to these sectors alone. Overhead conveyor models come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
