Online ordering capability and shorter lead times provide manufacturers, distributors and others with more flexibility
ROSEVILLE, Mich. (Oct. 26, 2023) – Ultimation, an MCE company, is adding a line of heavy-duty chain-driven live roller (CDLR) conveyors to its growing Online Store portfolio. Ultimation is the leading direct-to-consumer conveyor manufacturer, specializing in solving productivity challenges with fast-to-deploy solutions for a broad range of end-markets, including energy, automotive, logistics and vertical farming.
“Heavy-duty material handling solutions such as CDLRs typically require specialized engineering expertise to configure and long lead times for delivery,” said Kali Wahrman, general manager for Ultimation. “Our new quick-ship CDLR offering makes nearly a dozen of the most popular and versatile configurations accessible through on-line ordering with faster delivery times.”
Chain driven live roller conveyor systems are rugged, durable conveyors that are suited to many items that wouldn’t typically be conveyed on a roller conveyor such as pallets, racks, or industrial containers. The sprocketed rollers and roll-to-roll chain system provide power to drive the product forward. Multiple lengths and configurations make the CDLR a versatile conveyor that can be used in a variety of industrial and commercial environments, including warehouses, automotive plants and distribution centers. The chain design is also suitable for oily conditions or for moving product through high temperature zones, such as ovens, which can’t be serviced by other types of conveyors.
Ultimation’s new line of quick-ship CDLR conveyors include standardized straight sections. The powder-coated structural steel channel frames come in a 44-inch effective width and five-foot overall length with a 6,000-pound maximum drive capacity and 980-pound maximum capacity per foot. Ultimation’s CDLRs include jack bolt adjustable conveyor supports that measure 30” high and a ½ horsepower totally enclosed, fan cooled (TEFC) electric motor.
Wahrman said CDLRs available through Ultimation’s on-line store have reduced delivery lead times of as much as 50 percent, with delivery in 4-5 weeks versus eight or more.
