The basic function of a conveyor is to carry or transport cases and totes to different parts of the warehouse. How fast the item travels, if it can be accumulated on the conveyor, and how much it costs to power the conveyor are all key differences used to decide which conveyor type should be used.

Automotion has (6) conveyor class types each unique in its features and capabilities. Whether you need the energy efficiency of the AutoRoll motor driven roller conveyor or the simplicity of a gravity conveyor, Automotion's customer service representatives can help you match the right technology with the right application.
