What are the benefits of a conveyor belt or roller system
The use of conveyor belts and roller systems tackles age-old challenges many industries face, automation solutions. They not only make separating and packaging goods more efficient they also decrease human error and save so much time which can be used elsewhere. Conveyor belts use a continuous loop of material to move products. In contrast, roller conveyors use cylindrical rollers to transport items. The best choice for the job often depends on the nature of the products being transported.
