Overhead Conveyor

Overhead Conveyor System

  • System installed at height 3 to 4 meters above ground.
  • Tailor made system can be designed as per factory / warehouse layout.
  • Road crossing design for oversized vehicle to pass underneath.

An overhead belt conveyor is a specific type of overhead conveyor system that utilizes a continuous belt to transport items, products, or materials along an elevated path above the ground or floor. This type of conveyor system combines the advantages of both overhead conveyors and belt conveyors, offering efficient and flexible material handling solutions.

A road crossing belt conveyor, also known as a pedestrian crossing conveyor or a crosswalk conveyor, is a specialized conveyor system designed to safely move pedestrians, cyclists, or individuals across a road or traffic pathway. These conveyors are commonly used in urban environments, event venues, airports, and other locations where the safe movement of people across busy roads or intersections is essential.
Key features and characteristics of a road crossing belt conveyor include:
1. Safety: The primary purpose of a road crossing belt conveyor is to provide a safe and efficient means for pedestrians to cross roads or intersections
without the risk of interacting with vehicular traffic.
2. Conveyor Structure: The conveyor is typically built at the level of the
sidewalk or pedestrian area and is equipped with a continuous belt that moves in a controlled manner.
3. Activation and Control: Road crossing belt conveyors are often activated by a push-button system. Pedestrians press a button to initiate the conveyor
movement, and the conveyor provides a safe passage across the road.
4. Speed Control: The speed of the conveyor is designed to match the walking pace of pedestrians, ensuring a comfortable and safe crossing experience.
5. Visibility and Signage: These conveyors are often equipped with safety features such as flashing lights, audible signals, and clear signage to alert
pedestrians and drivers to the crossing.
6. Design: The design of the conveyor considers factors such as the width of the road, the number of pedestrians, and local traffic regulations.
Benefits of a road crossing belt conveyor:
1. Pedestrian Safety: The primary benefit is ensuring the safety of pedestrians by providing a designated and controlled crossing point.

2. Efficiency: Road crossing conveyors help maintain a smooth flow of both pedestrian and vehicular traffic, reducing congestion and potential conflicts.
3. Accessibility: They make busy intersections more accessible to people with mobility challenges, such as those using wheelchairs or mobility aids.
4. Traffic Management: These conveyors assist in managing foot traffic during events, festivals, and high-traffic periods.
Reduced Waiting Time: Pedestrians dont need to wait for gaps in traffic to cross, as the conveyor ensures a continuous and safe crossing opportunity.
It important to note that the installation of road crossing belt conveyors requires coordination with local authorities, adherence to safety regulations, and consideration of local traffic patterns. Proper design, maintenance, and communication are crucial to ensure the safe and effective use of these conveyors in urban environments.
