order picking applications

Order picking is the task of selecting from bulk, the items that your customer wants, in the quantity they want, when they want them.

This may involve selecting cartons from full pallets loads, or selecting items from cartons stored on shelves or in Carton Live Storage Systems or in Pallet Live Storage Systems. The process of order picking is labour intensive and therefore one of the most costly elements of warehousing and distribution operations.

Conveyor systems can be cost effective and streamline the order picking process.  The different types of conveyors available are: gravity roller conveyor, powered roller conveyor and belt conveyor.

Colby Conveyors 

Turning your materials handling into materials flow

Just as efficiently designed transport networks can lower costs and speed up delivery, systematic material flow mobilises and transforms inventory 

Effective material flow solutions ensure you have what you need, where and when you need it.

Conveyors join processes together and deliver and take away goods, automatically and on cue. Conveyors can intelligently sort out or merge goods. The Colby Conveyor range facilitates a multitude of functions that can add value to your products and reduce handling costs in your facility.

Conveyors of various types such a belts, rollers, wheels and chains, suit different kinds of applications. They can convey horizontally, vertically, around corners, incline and decline. Usually they are electrically driven, but often gravity - a cheap source of power - can play a crucial part.

 Gravity Conveyor Range 

  • Gravity Roller Conveyor

Our gravity roller model is available in straight sections. Sections can be angled to product moved by gravity, or installed level to be manually pushed. The 'Cleanline' side channel design significantly reduces operator exposure to OH&S risks. This model handles a wide variety of different products with irregular surfaces.

Widths available: 464mm, 616mm, 768mm & 921mm

  • Gravity Wheel Conveyor

The gravity wheel model is available in straight sections and curves. Sections can be angled so product moved by gravity, or installed level to be manually pushed. It needs less slope than roller conveyors and can also be used for curve applications. Due to the differential action of the individual wheels, the gravity wheel conveyor provides good tracking abilities. Its lightweight construction allows easy relocation or adjustments at any time.

Widths available: 464mm, 616mm, 768mm & 921mm 

Powered Conveyor Range

  • Lineshaft Conveyor

The highly versatile lineshaft conveyor can run multiple conveyors and a variety of equipment off a single drive, making this an economical choice for a large range of conveying needs. Lineshaft is also available on curved beds as well as junctions, merges and divert beds. Independently driven carrier rollers make lineshaft more versatile than conventional belt or chain-driven live roller conveyors. Fewer drives means less noise, lower initial cost, and lower maintenance costs.

Widths available: 464mm, 616mm, 768mm & 921mm

  • Slider Bed Belt Conveyor

This conveyor model economically handles products over long distances. It can transport a wide range of load sizes and shapes, including difficult to convey products such as crates, bags, bundles, rolls and unpackaged goods. The belt moves across a steel supporting bed, offering an extremely stable surface. Fitted with rough top belting, it can be used to convey goods between different floor levels.

Widths available: 464mm, 616mm, 768mm & 921mm

  • Live Roller Conveyor

This belt-driven roller conveyor enables variable drive pressure throughout the system. It uses a roller bed as the conveying surface and a flat belt as the driving force. This gives optimum reliability for rugged conveying applications, including cartons, totes or bagged and bundled items. At merge and divert points, pressure can be increased to full driving force.

Widths available: 464mm, 616mm, 768mm & 921mm

 Accumulation Conveyor Range

  • Model 24V dc

The 24V dc accumulation conveyor offers true 'zero pressure' accumulation. A motorised roller ensures products are held captive within each accumulations 'zone'. The conveyor requires no other drive devices or controls. Start/stop control is performed automatically and without the need for additional air-operated devices such as pneumatic roller brakes and case stops.

Widths available: 464mm, 616mm, 768mm & 921mm

  • Model 1265

The 1265 accumulation conveyor is a general zero pressure accumulation conveyor, well-suited to a variety of industries and applications. The unit's narrow belt drive mechanism is inherently quiet and has been designed to minimise friction, so fewer, smaller drives can power longer runs. Low maintenance and minimal energy consumption result in exceptional operational efficiency.

Widths available: 464mm, 616mm, 768mm & 921mm

 Conveyor Support Range

  • Conveyor Support Assemblies

Conveyor supports are available in a range of configurations to suit a wide variety of installations. All conveyor supports are adjustable and have a powder-coated finish. Conveyor support assemblies available include:

  1. Low to high-level adjustable floor-mounted supports
  2. Ceiling-hung and cantilever supports
  3. Double and triple-wide support assemblies

Widths available: 464mm, 616mm, 768mm & 921mm

 Pallet Conveyor Range

  • BK25 Smart – Pallet Roller Conveyor

BK25 Smart pallet roller conveyor are designed to handle everything from pallets and drums to work-in-process containers.  They are built to resist heat, dirt, oil, and other contaminants. Smooth transportation is provided through the contact between pallet and roller. Guide flanges on the supporting rollers ensure that the pallets do not move sideways on the conveyor.

  • Model T5 – Pallet Chain Conveyor

T5 pallet chain conveyors are designed for operational reliability.  They are solidly built and require minimal maintenance. Chain conveyors are used when the bottom of the load can be bridged across its width.   Two, three and four strands of chain are offered for positive load location and transport.

  • CNN Pallet Conveyor

The newly developed CNN Pallet Conveyor is a chain-driven design, purpose built for flexibility and lower setup costs. This new concept utilises a single drive for the takeaway conveyor and the primary transfer, thereby saving the costs associated with the additional drive required in a standard pallet turntable. CNN Pallet Conveyor is designed to be an economical solution specifically for use with pallets weighing less than 1,000kgs
