How Direct Product Handling Conveyors Solve Five Control Challenges

on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 By | Craig Newberry | 0 Comments | Solutions for Applications Engineers Flexible Conveyor Solutions
Glide-Line’s Direct Product Handling Conveyor and its ZP Conveyor for Appliance Handling are zero-pressure zoned conveyors designed to handle appliance parts or products directly on the conveyor belt (with no pallet on the conveyor system). These conveyors are built for fragile or delicate products and utilize a high friction surface on the conveyor belt to prevent the products from slipping. Further, these are designed to be used in a zero pressure drive method to maintain maximum control over the product motion through an automation process: no touching, no damage.
