Why Glide-Line ZP is a Gentler, More Reliable and Energy Efficient Conveyor Solution

Posted by Trevor Price | Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Kevin Mauger, our President, took some time to explain the "what", "how", and "when" of Glide-Line's zero pressure accumulation conveyor, the Glide-Line ZP.  What is it? How does it work? And, when is a good time to take advantage of its benefits?

 

Watch Kevin's video for the full "what", "how", and "when":

 

Glide-Line ZP is a gentler, more reliable and energy efficient conveyor solution.

With traditional conveyors, there is often backpressure from upstream pallets, motors running continuously, unnecessary wear and tear on the entire system and continuously running the conveyors, which wastes energy.  Glide-Line ZP eliminates 100% of the backpressure caused by that accumulation - providing a gentler transfer of product, less chance of breakage due to the gentler transfer and a more energy-efficient conveyor due to the automatic powering off of the motors.
