Chain Driven Live Roller Conveyor
Moving the big stuff
Chain Driven Live Roller (CDLR) conveyor is made up of a series of rollers aligned inside two side frames. The rollers are then connected via sprockets and chain to a drive motor mounted to the side of the conveyor. These pulleys, being made of steel, are able to convey far heavier products compared to plastic based conveyors like table tops and modular belts. The down side of such a conveyor, however, is the relatively large gaps between the rollers limiting the size of the products that can be effectively conveyed.
Chain driven roller is most commonly used for moving already packaged cases or boxes of product towards the end of a production line leading into or out of palletizing equipment.
