Redefining What Conveyors Can Accomplish Using the Glide-Line 360

Posted by Ron Schwar | Monday, May 6, 2019

The Glide-Line 360 solution feels a bit like the internet. For a person who has never used the internet, it’s very hard to describe what it is; the internet cannot be defined or boxed very easily. But once that person has a chance to experience the vast, configurable tool that is the worldwide web, it’s so useful and impactful they can’t imagine life without it after that.

The Glide-Line 360 is a highly configurable customizable conveyor/device solution. It can be configured to meet your clients' needs in literally hundreds of thousands of ways. It can shuttle, divert, merge, sort, stack, lift, lower, transfer, and turn – or any combination thereof – in one system. The best part? It doesn’t cost additional time or money, because all the configurations come as standard solutions.

Check out the video for more information on what Glide-Line 360 is, and why we created this highly configurable system.

 




The Glide-Line 360 offers limitless flexibility to conveyors and devices. We’ve redefined what conveyor strands can accomplish; instead of using them strictly as conveyors for pallet handling, we use them for more:

The Glide-Line 360 is also low-maintenance. It’s a motion device created from all the same parts as other conveyors, and once you know how to maintain and repair Glide-Line conveyors, you can repair and maintain the Glide-Line 360.

In many ways, the 360 is an upgrade from a traditional solutions. For instance:

  • Compared to other actuators (which are very expensive), this is a low-precision actuator that is more than accurate enough for generate material handling.

  • It’s a much more flexible solution than a typical conveying solution because it’s able to be configured to do so much more.

  • It can achieve virtually any movement. You're able to move any direction needed by programming the conveyors and motors to suit your process.

  • It helps save space. The Glide-Line 360 helps our integrators design up (vertically) instead of out (horizontally), saving floor space that might have otherwise been used for things like accumulation, additional conveyors or processes, and more.


With the Glide-Line 360, there's no need to add complex, customized conveyors to a process. Instead, the system is built using a standard conveyor base design with minimal add-ons to learn and upkeep. This innovation is capable of meeting or exceeding your expectations of a traditional conveyor system. Our team of experts is standing by to help you integrate the Glide-Line 360 into your design.

Glide-Line offers the most versatile multi-strand panel and pallet-handling solution available for the assembly automation industry.

We solve problems that other conveyor systems manufacturers won’t. We developed Glide-Line from the ground up with a few key, driving factors in mind. First, our conveyors had to be robust and reliable. Second, they would be simple – easy to maintain and service. Finally, we insisted on flexible configurability, creating an efficient, hassle-free customer experience. We’ve built the most versatile multi-strand panel and pallet-handling solution available for the assembly automation industry.
