Conveyor systems - Centex Material Handling


A conveyor system is an integral part of material handling and warehouses requiring the transport of materials from one area to another. Conveyor systems provide amazing benefits such improved warehouse efficiency as well as essential worker safety. It also enables a wider variety of materials which can be transported throughout a facility, and overall flexibility with regard to locations where materials are to be placed. Conveyors are especially useful in applications involving the transportation of heavy or bulky materials where forlifts or cranes are not accessible. Centex Material Handling provides conveyor system solutions for material handling, packaging industries and various other industries in the Austin and surrounding Central Texas area. Make sure your business gets the right conveyor solution by consulting with us first.

Ball Transfer Table

Ball transfer tables consists of ball transfers attached to a rigid frame for support. Ball transfer tables allow flat-bottomed loads to roll along a path from one place to another, reducing the effort it takes to move the loads in warehousing, package handling, manufacturing, and distribution applications. Ball transfer tables allow loads to move in all directions. They are typically installed at transition points (entrances, intersections, or exits) in the conveyor system, or at packing tables or workstations where loads need to be rotated or positioned.

Flexible Gravity Conveyor

Flexible gravity conveyor systems are a useful product when your solution requires movability, maneuverability and flexibility to transfer goods. They are portable, expandable and easily positioned in either straight lines or around corners. Flexible conveyor systems are an ideal solution for temporary or dynamic environments, providing a sustainable long-term solution for warehouse and material handling industries. When finished using them, they can easily be stored until needed again. Flexible gravity conveyor systems can also an extremely useful solution in shipping departments and other high traffic areas where products need to be moved in or out of trucks.

Gravity Conveyor

Gravity conveyors consist of rollers mounted on a series of axles attached to rigid fixed or telescoping frames. The rollers let loads roll along a path from one place to another, reducing effort to move loads. They provide a stable surface for moving loads with rimmed or uneven bottoms, such as drums, pails, pallets, skids, and bags. Loads can roll forward and back along the conveyors, and they can also be pushed from side to side across the conveyors’ full width. Roller conveyors typically have a higher weight capacity and are better suited for moving heavy loads than skate wheel conveyors.

Live Roller Conveyor

Live roller conveyors are a roller system powered by a mechanical device, moving materials or products along a conveyor line. They are often used in warehouses and manufacturing plants that have automated manufacturing, distribution and warehouse conveyor lines. They provide easy transportation for a large variety of products. Any application that requires motorized movement and enhanced efficiency is ideal for a live roller conveyor system.

Omni Directional Conveyor

The Omni Directional conveyor is capable of receiving and sorting products in multiple directions. It is also capable of connecting multiple other conveyors in a system due to a dynamic work environment or line expansion. Developed for zone picking (“pick and pass”) operations, the omni directional conveyor supports diversion of items to manual picking areas as well as merge them back onto the main conveyor system. It can also be integrated as single-level in-feed/out-feed with automated storage and retrieval systems.

Engineered to be cost-effective in low-density applications.

Pallet Conveyor

Not only do pallet conveyors maximize floor space as well as free up forklifts and pallet jacks,but they are designed to increase efficiency, reduce downtime in automation processes, and provide accurate conveying. They also allow for maximum assembly flexibility.

Roller Bed Conveyor

Roller bed conveyors can move loads horizontally or up and down an incline. They are designed to move heavier loads with greater capacity and reduce friction and wear on on a product. The roller bed conveyor system is ideal in assembly, inspection and packing operations.

Slider Bed Conveyor

Slider bed conveyors can move loads horizontally or up and down an incline. They are specifically designed to maintain the position and stability of items during the conveying process. This belt conveying system is less likely to agitate fragile items than those with roller or skate wheel conveyors, making roller bed conveyors more desirable in packaging lines and/or when fragile products are being conveyed. They can also be used for moving small items which would fall between rollers or skate wheels, items with uneven or irregularly shaped bottom surfaces, and small bagged items that could sag, become trapped, or fall between rollers. There are many benefits and solutions a slider bed conveyor system provides.

Wire Mesh Belt Conveyor

Wire mesh belt conveyor systems can be used in varying conditions, but most especially in food service. They are able to transport hot, cold, or oily products to or from an oven. They are able to transport cooling or frozen items to or from a freezer. There are many other special conditions where a wire mesh belt conveyor system may be the best solution for any business. A variety of belt types can be used depending upon the application requirements. Wire mesh belt conveyors are designed to interface with existing conveyor systems and are custom engineered from standard components.
