Conveyors are used when materials is usually to be moved frequently between particular points over a set path and when there is a sufficient flow volume to justify the fixed conveyor investment.[4] Various kinds of conveyors can be seen as a the type of planetary gearbox product being managed: unit load or mass load; the conveyor’s location: in-floor, on-floor, or overhead, and whether loads can accumulate on the conveyor. Accumulation enables intermittent movement of every unit of material transported along the conveyor, while all systems move simultaneously on conveyors without accumulation capability.[5] For instance, while both the roller and flat-belt are unit-load on-floor conveyors, the roller provides accumulation capability as the flat-belt will not; similarly, both power-and-free and trolley are unit-load overhead conveyors, with the power-and-free made to include a supplementary track to be able to provide the accumulation capability lacking in the trolley conveyor. Examples of bulk-handling conveyors are the magnetic-belt, troughed-belt, bucket, and screw conveyors. A sortation conveyor system is used for merging, identifying, inducting, and separating products to end up being conveyed to particular destinations, and typically includes flat-belt, roller, and chute conveyor segments together with various moveable arms and/or pop-up tires and chains that deflect, push, or pull items to different destinations.[6]
