We offer a range of conveyor systems that provide efficient ways to automate and streamline your order picking process, making it easier for you to carry out your business. Our range of conveyors includes gravity roller/wheel, powered rollers and/or belt conveyor systems. Whatever project solution you need, we’ve got it.

Different Conveyors for Different Purposes

We can provide a range of different conveyors from Colby to suit the specific needs of your company, such as belt, roller, wheel, and chain-based conveyors. There are systems that convey horizontally, vertically, on inclines and declines, or even around corners. 

Gravity Conveyor Range

Gravity Conveyor with Rollers

Whilst powered conveyors are common, in many circumstances, a gravity conveyor is sufficient  – which means big power savings for you! Our Colby gravity conveyor comes in straight sections (beds) that can be inclined or level, so stock can be pushed/pulled along at a pace set by your staff. It can handle all kinds of products, including those with irregular surfaces. These conveyors are manufactured with “cleanline” side channels, which protect your staff from any exposed axles.

Available in widths ranging from 464mm up to 921mm

Gravity Wheel Conveyor

Our Colby gravity wheel conveyors feature multiple individual wheels in place of single rollers. Using straight sections or curves, you can design the gravity conveyor systems so that gravity itself will move your stock from one place to another, or you can leave the conveyor level for staff to push/pull material along. 

With lightweight construction for easy relocation and adjustments, this is a great addition to any warehouse or distribution centre.

Available in widths ranging from 464mm up to 921mm

 

Our Range of Powered Conveyors

Lineshaft Conveyors

The Colby lineshaft powered conveyor is a powerful piece of equipment. It can run multiple sections of conveyors, along with other equipment, all off a single drive, making it an economical choice, no matter what your conveyor needs.

Lineshaft systems can easily incorporate curved beds, junctions, merges, and diversion beds. The carrier rollers in our lineshaft conveyors make them more versatile than standard belt or chain-driven systems, while fewer drives mean less noise, lower costs and easy maintenance. 

Available in widths ranging from 464mm up to 921mm

Slider Belt Conveyor

Slider belt conveyors can transport products economically over long distances. The conveyor belt is supported by a solid steel bed, making for great stability and safety. No load is too awkward for these systems. They can easily move a wide range of load sizes and shapes, even difficult items such as bags, bundles, rolls, crates, and loose, unpackaged goods. Rough top belting provides the friction needed for moving goods between different heights and floor levels.

Available in widths ranging from 464mm up to 921mm

Live Roller Conveyor

Storage Ideas distribute live roller conveyors that use a flat belt system to drive a roller bed, providing for variable drive pressure and optimal reliability in even the most rugged conveying operations. Where stock needs to merge or diverge, pressure can be increased to facilitate the process. This means all kinds of stock, including cartons, totes, and bagged or bundled items can be handled easily.

Available in widths ranging from 464mm up to 921mm

Our Range of Accumulation Conveyors

24V DC model from Colby

If you need products or cartons queued up automatically for picking, sorting or packing, accumulation conveyors can help. Our 24V DC conveyor groups products in specific areas and moves them on, all completely automatically, while providing ‘zero pressure’ accumulation of products. This means you don’t need any other devices or controls to operate the system. 

Available in widths ranging from 464mm up to 921mm

Model 1265

Our 1265 accumulation conveyor is well-suited to any industrial operation that requires zero pressure accumulation of products. These units feature a narrow belt line mechanism that minimises friction for longer runs requiring less power, as well as quiet operation. This all adds up to a system that uses minimal energy and requires very little maintenance, boosting the efficiency of your operations.

Available in widths ranging from 464mm up to 921mm

Pallet Conveyor Range

BK25 Smart Pallet Roller Conveyor

The Colby BK25 smart pallet conveyor is a heavy-duty pallet conveyor system that can easily move everything from heavy pallets and drums to work-in-process containers. These units are strong and designed to resist heat, dirt, oils and other contaminants. BK25 conveyors also feature guide flanges to stop pallets and other heavy loads from shifting sideways while being moved.

T5 Pallet Chain Conveyor

T5 pallet chain conveyors are designed and manufactured for strength, reliability and low-maintenance operation. When the bottom of a load can be bridged across its width, chain conveyors can be used. Multiple strands of chain, up to four, can be incorporated to provide positive load location and transport.

CNN Pallet Conveyor

Colby’s CNN pallet conveyor was developed quite recently to provide businesses with a chain-driven conveyor system that combines maximum flexibility with minimal setup costs. The CNN replaces the two engines used in standard pallet turntables with a single drive for both the takeaway conveyor and the primary transfer. This makes for more efficient operation and much lower upfront costs. This is an economical conveying solution for pallets weighing less than 1000kgs.

Conveyor Support Range

We also stock durable, high-quality conveyor supports in varied configurations to suit your conveyor installation. All our conveyor support assemblies feature powder coated finishes to ensure a long working life, and they are fully adjustable. The models we have available include:

Low to high-level adjustable floor-mounted supports

Ceiling-hung and cantilever supports

Double and triple-wide support assemblies

Available in widths ranging from 464mm up to 921mm
