Modular Conveyor Systems
At FMH Conveyors, we specialize in maximizing efficiency and adaptability through conveyors that are quickly set up and configured for different layouts, and just as easily reconfigured, taken down and stored. We focus on modular sortation solutions that make loading and unloading as fast and as seamless as possible, integrating into modular conveyor systems that are ideal for scenarios where spikes, surges or seasonal peaks occur, as well as changes in layout to use floor space efficiently and meet shifting needs.
Our motor driven roller conveyors can be utilized to create systems for a variety of applications including package transfers, semi-automated sorts, and tying in manual packaging/workstations. These solutions can be quickly installed or reconfigured thanks to modular design, minimal components and hardware, and simple controls.
Benefits of a Modular Roller Conveyor
A roller conveyor with modular design offers numerous benefits in shipping and receiving functions. These benefits include:
- Fast reconfiguration: By design, modular sections are quickly and easily set up, moved, and integrated into or removed from existing modular conveyor systems. The modular capabilities of a reconfigurable conveyor allow personnel to take advantage of conveyor benefits, when needed, while maximizing floor space usage at other times.
- Efficient package sorting: With a modular setup, packages are easily sorted when coming off the truck, according to the needs and arrangement of your facility. Modularity even offers the ability to create different setups for various suppliers, shippers and product types — providing the flexibility necessary to succeed in today’s evolving material handling landscape.
- Reduced investment through portability: Beyond simple reconfiguration within one facility, the conveyor can be easily moved between facilities. This maximizes usage efficiency and reduces infrastructure spend by eliminating the need for full-fledged, new systems and providing just as much technology and light automation as needed.
These modular conveyors create systems for a variety of applications including package transfers, semi-automated sorts and tying in manual packaging/work stations. These solutions are quickly installed or reconfigured thanks to the modular design, minimal components and hardware, and simple controls that utilize 120 VAC power.
