Want to Accumulate a Product Without Using a Pallet?

When moving larger and/or awkwardly shaped products directly on a conveyor, putting products on a more conveyable pallet capable of handling the contact driven by accumulation is typically the  right conveyor system design. But unique products require unique solutions. Glide-Line’s ZP (zero pressure/zero contact) conveyor design solves this challenge. A ZP-based solution can offer a better way to accumulate a product without a pallet.

My Partially Assembled Product Is Approaching A Delicate Step On The Assembly Line—How Do We Reduce Waste & Damage?

When developing the right assembly line conveyor system, reducing damage is a top priority. This is especially the case when moving partially-assembled products. Moving products in a semi-complete state can ruin them completely, leading to additional costs and delays. In that situation, the last thing you need is a conveyor system that causes products from banging into each other!
