Leading provider of material-handling equipment
As a leading provider of material-handling equipment, Norpak Handling holds a wide inventory of conveyor types. Each model caters to specific requirements in a certain production environment. The following three are among Norpak’s most popular products:
- Belt conveyors. Companies use these versatile conveyors to move items with irregular bottom surfaces and small items. What differentiates these conveyors is the addition of a belt. Rubber belts retain friction in a way that enables transport of items through changes in elevation or levels. Users find belt conveyors far more economical than vertical elevating or lowering ones.
- Flexible conveyors. These conveyors are built to accommodate the complex layouts of certain facilities, especially grocery stores and food-processing plants. With their multi-flexing chains, they are designed to work around obstacles and travel in different pathways to keep production moving. Another frequent purpose for flexible conveyors is loading and unloading packages into or from transport trailers. Norpak offers powered and gravity flexible systems; the former uses a motor power source, whereas the latter uses natural gravity.
- Gravity conveyors. What makes the gravity conveyor stand out is its reliance on gravity to transport items over downward inclines, with no motorized power. This makes it suitable for heavier items and those with smooth, rigid bottoms, which can move faster downwards without assistance. To function optimally, a gravity conveyor requires a minimum weight. Each comes with guard rails and end stops, so that operators have more control over production flow. Gravity conveyors are the most economical options for certain products, and Norpak can provide expert advice and assessment as to whether these systems suit a particular facility.
