Gravity Frames & Rigid Supports

Gravity frame & Rigid supports


The Lemcol range of gravity conveyor will enable goods of various shapes, sizes and weights to be move quickly, efficiently and safely from one operational stage to the next. Your choice of roller or wheel conveyor will depend on the nature of the articles to be moved. Generally goods that are heavy or less uniform in shape, or both, will require roller conveyors. Lighter and more uniform articles may well suit the use of wheel conveyor, which have the capacity to move goods quicker.

Although each part of a gravity section has separate load capacities, it is important to note that the overall capacity of the section is dependent upon the combination of roller pitch, roller type and the method of support. If in doubt, please refer to your nearest Lemcol representative.

Standard roller conveyor frames and rigid supports are supplied in a painted condition. Where adverse operating conditions exist, hot-dip galvanised frames and supports are available.

Roller Conveyor Frame (90 x 28 x 2.5 channel)

Available in both straight and curved sections, the side channel is made from 2.5mm thick material, folded into a ‘C’ section for strength.

The cross members are made of inverted 40mm x 40mm x 3mm angle iron, strategically welded into position to reinforce the section and provide a bed for the rigid support.

There are standard lengths for straight sections (1500mm and 3000mm) and curves (45 degree and 90 degree).

‘Oval’ axle holes to suit our standard Lemcol gravity rollers are punched at 37.5mm centres for flexibility of roller pitch.

Sections interlock to form a positive and secure join between frames, allowing the flexibility to add or reduce sections as required. Straight sections incorporate a bar coupler at one end and a hook coupler at the other. Curved sections have universal couplers at both ends.

In-house manufacture allows the flexibility to provide non-standard lengths or widths upon request.

Rigid Supports

Lemcol Rigid supports provide a firm foundation for all the roller and wheel conveyor sections in the range.

Made from tubular construction and fully welded for strength and reliability, each stand can be individually adjusted to the height required. A range of models is available to suit various frame widths, providing the choice of operating heights from 305mm to 1320mm.

While supports Have the flexibility to be used as freestanding units, it is recommended that they are bolted into position to ensure operator safety.
