Sovex lets gravity do the work

Prenton based conveyor manufacturer Sovex Systems has launched its latest vehicle loading boom conveyor which uses free running rollers and uses gravity to transport parcels.

David Lindfield, managing director, said: “Boom conveyors fitted with rollers are ideal for loading vehicles. Using gravity they are fast, efficient and less costly than the powered alternative.”

Roller conveyors are widely used because they are simple, fast and cost effective. The Sovex Roller Loader combines the advantages of free running rollers with proven extending boom conveyor designs to produce an efficient vehicle loading device.

Declined from the loading dock into the vehicle trailer, a Sovex Roller Loader uses gravity to transport goods. As the vehicle fills the operator can retract the boom using its optional powered extend/retract system to maintain a comfortable loading position.
