Power and Free Conveyors are perfect solutions for industries that have a complicated manufacturing line where material must be systematically stopped or diverted for processing without halting the entire system. A Power and Free Conveyor system allows for the greatest flexibility in production because it can integrate many features such as: variable speed chains, inversions, elevations changes, and accumulation areas for work in progress. Plus, a power and free system can be designed to operate in corrosive and non-corrosive environments.
Using Power & Free conveyors in a production facility reduces the need for additional material handling expenses because one system is capable of doing everything. The system can sustain several different production lines while simultaneously ensuring a constant supply of material to each processing station for increased productivity, a key principle of Lean Manufacturing.
