Glide-Line's Zero Contact Zoned Conveyor is a gentler, more reliable and energy efficient conveyor solution by eliminating 100% of product contact and backpressure caused by accumulation. 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.

New Call-to-action


With Glide-Line’s new Zero Contact Zoned Conveyor, motors only run when a product approaches and has a permissive from downstream, maintaining a gap between products so no backpressure is created. Accumulation zones are powered by a 24VDC brushless motor and can handle loads up to 200 lbs. each.


Key Benefits of Zero Contact Zoned Conveyors:

  • Energy Savings… energy savings can range from 20-40% per year 
  • Gentle product handling… non contact is the most gentle way to handle your product
  • Reliability… fewer parts, no oil or gears, one moving parts in motor. No motor maintenance required on motor.

Key Features:

  • Gentle, more reliable and energy efficient conveyor solution
  • 24V brushless DC motors are maintenance free and virtually noise free
  • Certified for use in clean room environments
  • Built in driver cards with zero pressure logic and I/O points
  • Can handle loads up to 200 lbs per zone.
  • Bearings in motors have 300,000 hour lifespan
  • All maintenance operations including belt changes can be performed from the top eliminating the need to disassemble or remove ancillary equipment
  • Highly configurable
  • T5 timing style conveyor belts for positive drive and precision positioning ability
  • Extruded aluminum construction with standard 10mm T-slots

How To Reduce Damage to Products on Conveyors - horizontal


Kevin Mauger breaks down the what, how and when of Glide Line Zero Contact Zoned Conveyor - What it is, how it works, and when it's needed!


Glide-Line’s IMPACT! featured in National Solidworks Case Study!

Glide-Line leveraged the open SOLIDWORKS API, the GoAutomate open-source automation tool, and Microsoft Excel software to introduce IMPACT!, the industry’s first in-context conveyor configurator, which combines access to solid modeling tools and snap-to mating functionality with prices, part numbers, and ordering capabilities in real time.



Build 3D model designs with constant INNOVATION and CUSTOMIZATION

This guide is built to address some of the challenges you may be facing when planning conveyors into your automation system engineering designs. We provide potential solutions to help you solve these problems, plus tips on how to inject creativity into your own systems when it comes to conveyor system designs.



“As a provider of mechanical hardware solutions, item North America/MB Kit Systems Inc. sees multiple requests for complex material handling solutions. Clearly, Glide-Line always seems to know what customers need and the new Glide-Line 360 has unlimited solutions for a wide range of applications.”

Rick Sabo, VP Sales & Marketing - NA/MB Kit Systems


“IMPACTwas easy to launch and update. It quickly led me in the direction I needed to define my design. I love having dead accurate CAD files with high detail. IMPACT takes it one step further in that I don’t have to re-download every time I have to make a change. I love having native Solidworks files to integrate into my designs.”

DeWayne Merritt, a 16 year Mechanical Tool Design Engineer for AutoLiv


"Glide-Line understands the market. That is why they come with innovative products, are incredibly responsive and have the fastest delivery times around."

Jim Beretta, former Application Engineer - Industry Expert


"The experts at Glide-Line are quick to respond, they're quick to bring solutions, and they're quick to help me identify product. They've backed up everything they've told me and brought good product to bear and their solutions are running well in the field. I'm not sure what more you could ask for."
