The angle of incline for incline conveyors is limited by the cartons and package being conveyed. Make the angle too steep, and the packages will tumble down the conveyor. This calculator helps you to determine the maximum angle for smooth, safe conveying.
Will an incline conveyor fit in the space you have? What will my incline angle be? Answer these questions and more with our incline calculators. This calculator contains multiple calculators for various aspects of incline conveyors specification. We can always assist you when it come to conveyor specification.
If you do not specify your curve to be wide enough, packages may become jammed against guardrails, or overhang the curve and contact nearby obstructions causing a jam or damage. Use this calculator to determine how wide your curves should be.
Sometimes you need to move a package to the right or left side of a conveyor to properly line up with a labeler, printer, or to track properly through the next conveyor. One way to accomplish this is to skew the rollers by moving one end of the rollers over by one notch in the conveyor frame.Using this calculator, you can determine how far the package has to travel across skewed rollers to move it closer to the side by the required distance.
