NestaFlex 226 Gravity Skate Wheel Conveyors
Designed to expand, contract and move easily, the NestaFlex® 226 is a self tracking, gravity skate wheel conveyor that has a per linear foot capacity of 226 pounds. This unit is engineered to handle multi-sized cartons in low to medium volume applications. The all-steel construction provides unmatched structural integrity, whether the conveyor is extended, compacted or configured in simple or compound curves. Adjustable inner legs vary height to achieve gravity flow.
The NestaFlex® 226 is the choice for use in retail store level applications, packaging areas, assembly lines and in low volume shipping and receiving departments.
NestaFlex conveyors are able to bend and twist as needed to go around obstacles. Conveyors can even curve up to 180º curves.
The flexibility of NestaFlex conveyors also allows a single conveyor to service multiple doors.
Cartons will follow the twists and turns of the conveyor path without using engineered curves.
NestaFlex conveyors are designed to expand and contract as needed to help with the loading and unloading process. Once trucks are loaded or unloaded, conveyors can be conveniently contracted and stored to save floor space.
NestaFlex 226 come standard with black high density polymer skate wheels with steel ball. They are lighter than zinc plated wheels, and increase the speed of package conveyance, making these excellent for packaging machines and light parcel applications.
Zinc plated skate wheels with steel ball bearings and polymer skate wheels with nylon bushings are also available. The zinc plated skate wheels provide maximum durability, while the nylon bushiness skate wheels provide the most economical option.
Connection couplers allow easy connection between multiple conveyor sections for continuous package flow. This allows for conveyors to be disconnected when retracting or storing.
Axle centers are measured from centerline to centerline of skate wheels, and ensure that materials remain securely on the conveyor while maintaining efficient flow. Proper axle centers are determined by the smallest item that will be conveyed. The industry standard is three rollers (rows of skate wheels) should be under a carton at all times.
The retractable package stop will keep cartons from going into the floor if the product flow is faster than the operators ability to load/unload.
Heavy Duty Impact Cart
The optional heavy duty impact cart assist in extending the live of the conveyor in unloading applications.
