Posted by Craig Newberry | Tuesday, September 27, 2022

Glide-Line’s Roller Chain conveyor brings new flexibility to heavy-duty applications for your manufacturing tasks. With our modular design, we’ve revolutionized the capabilities of traditional roller chain conveyors for precise control and expert manipulation of products across your assembly line.



When you dissect our Roller Chain conveyors, you’ll see the anatomy of our modular designs and innovative technologies that help you optimize every portion of pallet and direct product handling applications. Designed to enhance overall equipment effectiveness, Glide-Line’s Roller Chain conveyors help to reduce maintenance costs while giving you all the design freedom you expect from our solutions.

 The centerdrive system gives you an inherently reversible design for two-directional applications with no loss in capacity .

To aid with continuous beam integrity, the adjustable position underslung drives require no breaks in the CV extrusion.

To support your heavy duty applications, our Roller Chain conveyors use hardened steel carry rails instead of the industry standard plastic. And with the same outer dimensions as our belt conveyor extrusion, mixing and matching all Glide-Line conveyors and devices within one system is a snap.

With Glide-Line, you have the ability to revolutionize your manufacturing and assembly operations using our automated, efficient, and gentle material handling solutions. Glide-Line’s roller chain conveyor just ushered in a new era in automated, heavy-duty material and product handling capabilities.
