Interested in Purchasing a Slat Conveyor?
There’s nothing better for your business and the workload of your employees than creating an automated factory. One particular system for automation that is ideal amongst our customers at LVP Conveyor Systems, is the slat conveyor. Slat conveyors are popular because they used to move heavy loads from one end of an assembly line to another.
They are created using unique slaps connected by a low friction roller chain. The chain, usually connected to a motor of some sort, moves the slats and therefore the product wherever you need to go. This convenient system is incredibly easy to tailor, so whatever business you are working in, we can make the flat conveyor work for you.
Why Choose a Slat Conveyor?
Can Carry Heavier Loads
While there are a range of options that you can choose from when it comes to automating your factory, nothing is as practical as the slat conveyor for moving heavy loads. Whatever industry you might be working in, you want to make sure that your employees are lifting and moving as little weight as possible. As an employer, it is your responsibility to look after your employees, and one of the ways you can do that is by removing the risk of injury when moving heavy items. You won’t be able to entirely remove the risk, but installing a slat conveyor will make sure that your products spend most of their time on the belt rather than in the arms of your employees. While there are other conveyor belt choices, nothing quite matches up to the slat conveyor for sheer weight capability, making it the ideal choice.
Highly Reliable and Require Very Little Maintenance
You don’t want to spend time maintaining your conveyor belts. Grinding your factory to a standstill because your conveyor belt isn’t working, can lose you money on your production. This is why you should pick factory automation that will stand up to even the harshest of factory environments. Slat conveyors are the perfect choice for this. Not only can they hold a lot of weight, but they can keep working through the most grueling schedules, which is particularly useful if you run a 24-hour factory. While others might buckle under the pressure, slat conveyors are highly reliable and you won’t need to spend hours maintaining them to avoid a breakdown.
Slats Can be Easily Replaced
If one of the slats should break, they are easy to replace; you just remove one and put the other back. There’s no need to replace the entire area, and there’s no long complicated process to swap them over. This makes it easy to keep your slat conveyor in good condition, which is certainly something to consider.
