Types of Conveyors
POWER & FREE AND OVERHEAD CONVEYORS
Power and Free conveyors are a special adaptation of traditional monorail conveyors and hand-push free line conveyors. These systems can be designed to mount overhead and support a suspended load or can be inverted and floor mounted to support a live load from beneath. Systems are designed to handle live loads from 25 lbs. to 40,000 lbs.
FLAT TOP & SLAT CONVEYORS
Continuous moving or indexing, flush with the floor or at working height, SSI Flat Top and Slat Conveyors are ideal for conveying and/or assembling large heavy products, such as automobiles, heavy trucks, earth moving equipment, steel coils or for the assembly of engines, brakes, axles, transmissions, compressors, or other components.
SSI TracVeyor® Systems are in-the-floor systems used to transport carts through warehousing, manufacturing, painting and assembling processes. Because the TracVeyor® is typically installed flush with the floor, the system does not impede factory traffic requirements or create safety concerns associated with trip hazards. SSI Chain-On-Flat Conveyors (COF), while similar to the SSI TracVeyor®, offers a more economical solution for customers that require only a straight, in-line conveyor. Systems designed for payloads between 50 pounds and 250,000 pounds. The SSI Chain-On-Edge Floor Conveyor is an above-the-floor system designed to either run in a straight line or negotiate horizontal turns.
Dual Strand Transportation Conveyors and Dual High Roller Accumulating Storage Conveyors represent an economical solution for storage and product delivery when a pallet, skid, or fixture can be placed on the chains. SSI builds many different types of Dual Strand Conveyors to handle most every product having a conveyable surface, varying from small boxes to large steel mill applications.
BELT & ROLLER
Belt conveyors and roller conveyor are, perhaps, the most widely used types of conveyors. Southern Systems International, LLC can manufacture and/or integrate entire systems of belt and roller conveyor for all types of industry. These systems are common solutions for package sortation, scrap handling, appliance assembly, automotive painting, warehousing, and heavy-duty steel mill applications
A key component to any complex, turnkey material handling system is the various types of Automatic Handling Equipment needed for part transfers, loading or manipulation. Southern Systems International, LLC manufactures, in-house, many different types of automation equipment specifically designed to integrate seamlessly into our conveyor systems, like upenders, auto body loaders, automatic transfers, floor-to-floor high speed liftveyors, droplifters, lowerators, vertical carousels, auto floor pan accumulating, railroad-type turntables, and test equipment.
