WAREHOUSE APPLICATIONS, UNIT MATERIAL
HANDLING, FOOD GRADE AND ANTI-CORROSIVE CONVEYOR APPLICATIONS:
Looking for Gravity, Skatewheel,
Powered Live Roller, Incline or Decline Belt Conveyor, KMH has the
Unit Material Handling includes all
conveyor application, where the object being conveyed is considered
a 'unit object' as opposed to 'bulk objects'. These 'unit'
conveyor fall into two general classes, either dead
(gravity) conveyor, or powered
conveyor. Dead or gravity conveyor usually fall into
two categories, either skatewheel or roller conveyor. Powered
conveyor include both powered roller conveyor and belt
Omni Metalcraft Corp Gravity conveyor
implies some type of 'pitched' conveyor, thus gravity is used to
assist in moving the unit object. Dead roller conveyor usually
implies the conveyor are located at a fixed elevation.
Movement of objects on the conveyor is a result of an operator
pushing the objects from one location to another. These
conveyor are available in many sizes and are capable of conveying
loads as light as a pound or as heavy as several tons.
Omni Metalcraft Powered conveyor
include live roller and belt conveyor. Live roller are
generally used for both transportation and accumulation, while belt

Gravity conveyor will vary in cost,
but are considerable less expensive then powered units. Budget
prices for gravity systems will run about $40.00 to $50.00 per foot
while powered unit will cost from $120.00 to $200.00/foot, depending
on the overall length and function of the proposed
If your application calls for
using gravity conveyor while conveying heavy unit objects such as
pallets, you may need to consider using a brake roller to ensure a
constant velocity. As a
general rule, if conveying 48” long pallets, you may need one brake
roller for each pallet position. Additional information on
brake rollers can be found on the Brake Roller Corporation web
your application calls for the movement of ‘something’ other than a
standard flat bottom box or pallet, then we usually will need to
quote unique equipment designed for a specific purpose. As a general rule, unique
equipment usually implies slightly higher costs, since these are
considered ‘one off specials’ and are not ‘mass

design equipment. The Flexoveyor Bag Flattener is one example
of special design equipment.

Transfers are available in a number of sizes. The
purpose of a Ball Transfer table is to usually assist in the
movement or rotation of an object, without the need to physically
lift and turn the object. As a general rule, the larger the
diameter of the ball, the greater the individual capacity of each
ball. Applications include heavy machine shops where large
steel plates are positioned on shears or

Roll-A Way Flexible
Gravity Conveyor are ideally suited for shipping receiving areas
where space is limited. Flexible conveyor are available in
12", 18", 24" and 30" overall widths, with extended lengths ranging
from 8'-0" to 60'-0". These conveyor, when compressed, occupy
a space 1/4 of the original extended length, thus a 10'-0"
compressed unit will extend to approximately 40'-0". The above
wheel conveyor is available in plastic wheel, nylon wheel and steel
Portable Belt Conveyor are available in a variety of shapes, sizes
and lengths. A majority of these units are designed for indoor
applications, yet designed properly, the units will work effectively
Corp. Slat Conveyor are considered
'special purpose' units. Application in assembly operations
are one area where these units are employed.
Hinged Steel Belt Conveyor is Ideal for handling small parts,
stampings, scrap, chips, turnings, material wet or dry, horizontal
or elevating, single or multiple unit systems.
Chain conveyor are used in moving large unit loads over extended
distances, and are best suited for transportation applications.
Corp. Gravity Skatewheel Conveyor are used
in light duty applications. The unit shown above includes the
'hook and rod' coupling, which allows for 'quick connections'.
Butt coupling are also available, but are normally used in 'fixed'
applications. These unit are available in 12", 18" and 24"
widths, with standard sections 10'-0" long.
Line Shaft Conveyor are ideally suited
in systems which include short straight runs with curves and
spurs. The advantage of the Line Shaft conveyor lies with the
design of the 'drive unit'. Note a single drive can power a
number of straight and curve sections, thus keeping the cost of
motors and controls to a minimum.

Metalcraft Corp Chain Driven Live Roller conveyor are
suited for a number of heavy duty applications, including very heavy
unit loads including pallet loads. Omni Metalcraft Corp
manufactures a wide variety of powered and dead roller units.
