We support a wide variety of types of powered conveyor systems. This provides flexibility to consistently use the best type for conveying a particular product with its particular packaging/box/tote/pallet, weight distribution, length, width and height.
Option III has many years of experience working with several manufacturers of general line and specialty types of conveyor systems, such as:
+ Lineshaft driven roller conveyor, motorized roller conveyor, belt driven roller conveyor
+ Belt Conveyor, horizontal, incline and decline
+ Vertical reciprocating conveyor and spiral conveyor
+ Flexible/movable conveyor on rollers and telescoping conveyor
Some considerations in conveyor system design include very narrow for e-commerce, quiet operation, minimized energy use, conserving pneumatics, shorter installation time, smaller footprints, and increased flexibility for dynamic demands.
Sortation can be incorporated at normal conveyor speeds or with specialized highest-speed sorters. A variety of sortation options provides excellent solutions for e-commerce polybags and other “non-sortables” as well as cases, totes or pallets.
Conveyor controls can be as simple as photo eyes activating an off/on switch or divert, and a safety off switch.
Most Conveyor systems require PC/PLC based controls, following UL-508a standards for Custom Control Panel fabrication using UL Listed & Recognized components. These support Zone routing systems, Barcode/RFID scanning, In-motion Weighing/Dimensioning, and other technologies, all with remote access for timely and efficient maintenance and upgrades.
Option III coordinates with local and/or specialty electrical contractors for complete Electrical Conveyor Control Systems Installation, Commissioning and Field Service.
