Span Tech: 5 benefits of conveyor rail guides

Supplier News

Whether your business is packaging, pharmaceuticals or e-commerce, you likely rely on conveyor belts to move products throughout your facility. Conveyor rail guides are an opportunity to streamline production and increase efficiency.

As products and materials travel along your company's conveyor system, conveyor guide rails make sure your products are directed to their proper destination. The conveyor belt guides are placed at specific locations along your conveyor belts inside holders and supported by clamping heads. Spacers under the holders are used to extend the width of your conveyor belts and control how much support the rail guides give.

In this article, we will look at the many benefits that come when you incorporate rail guides into your conveyor belt system and how Span Tech can help.

1. Adjustable for greater flexibility

Instead of needing to rebuild your conveyor belt to handle different products, conveyor rail guides can be quickly and easily adjusted to allow your conveyor system to move a variety of materials around your facility.

2. Safe

Using Span Tech's EZGUIDE™ conveyor guide rail system makes your conveyor belt safer for employees who need to work along the system. The EZGUIDE does not use any protruding mechanical parts that could cause safety hazards during adjustments.

3. Can be installed on any conveyor

Conveyor guide rails can be retro-fitted for addition to existing conveyor belts or included in your new conveyor belt designs.

4. Low changeover time

Adjustable conveyor belt guide rails are much faster to make changes on compared to traditional rail guides.

5. Reduced cost

When your conveyor belt system is down for changeovers, your company is losing money. Less downtime for changing conveyor belt guides means greater productivity and more savings.
