Conveyors are manufactured to offer a way of transporting items from one area to another and range from basic gravity fed rollers through to automated belt drive systems. Our popular telescopic vehicle loading and unloading systems are designed to quickly empty a container for 40 foot truck.
Spares for existing conveyors or parts to manufacture your own conveyor or ball transfer unit. Available from stock or manufactured to match existing requirements Merlin can help keep you moving.
Made to order conveyor trays are designed with flat bases to run on most conveyor systems from skate roller track to belt conveyors and allow smaller items not normally suited to conveyors to be transported.
A conveyor system simply takes a product from point A to point B. As conveyors have evolved along with automation and I.T. the systems that can now be implemented during the product's trip are almost limitless.
Flexible conveyors are used in food packaging, case packing, and pharmaceutical industries where a mobile conveyor system that can be directed around obstacles has appreciable benefits.
Manufactured in Wolverhampton since the mid 1960's it is by far the most popular and simple way of moving a product from A to B by the use of the products own weight.
Powered belt conveyors are probably the most popular type of conveyor in use today. The belt conveyor supporting structure can be manufactured from Mild steel or Stainless steel or a mixture of both. The belts can also be supplied in Rubber, Nylon and now Stainless-steel mesh (Ideal for bakeries and the food industry)
For ultimate flexibility of design and usage the XU series of Lineshaft conveyors cannot be beaten. These conveyors are suitable for light applications up to 20 kg such as cardboard boxes and tote boxes.
Vehicle loaders and unloader conveyors are available in Fixed, Flexible, Powered and Mobile versions and can be tailored to suit your specific requirements.

A simple arrangement of sections of gravity roller track linked together by sliding transfer sections to provide a useful means of loading and unloading vehicles or moving goods within the warehouse or stores and without the need of power these gravity conveyors can be used anywhere
On assembly lines, efficient material handling is crucial to productivity. Since transportation does not involve processing the item, transport times should be minimized. With properly planned material flows, buffer sizes are minimized and thus the WIP (work in process) value reduced.
