Lineshaft Conveyors basic design utilizes live rollers that are driven by a urethane belt from a drive shaft under the roller bed that runs the length of the conveyor. This belt driven driveshaft is turned by a motor and transmits its rotation via small urethane belts to individual rollers, making it an excellent choice for both transporting and accumulating products on a production line.
Of the Lineshaft conveyor components, the drive sections are the backbone and the straight and curved sections are the workhorses of a lineshaft live roller conveyor system. One drive section can drive up to 60 feet of conveyor on either side. Straight and curved sections are available in a variety of lengths to create a myriad of different conveyor runs. Lineshaft straight and curved sections must be 'slaved' to a drive unit in order to operate.
And since the rollers are individually powered, lineshaft conveyor can easily be used for accumulation operations where there is a minimum amount of back-pressure on the product being transported.
Some configurations of lineshaft conveyor allow the conveyor to run both forward or backward, depending on the situation desired. Because there are fewer moving parts, today's lineshaft conveyor is typically quieter than most traditional belt conveyors.
