What are Warehouse Conveyor Systems?
Warehouse conveyor systems, or pallet conveyors, are transportation devices that move pallets throughout a warehouse facility on rollers or conveyor belts. Conveyor systems can be operated manually, by gravity, or automatically with a motor system.
Automated warehouse conveyor systems are powered by a motor and move pallets independently of manual assistance. There are motorized roller conveyors as well as automated conveyor belt systems.
The implementation of warehouse conveyors is a massive leap for warehouse automation — conveyors quicken material handling processes and order fulfillment, allowing warehouses to be more productive and efficient.
