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. Merlin can supply both gravity and motorised flexible conveyors.

Flexible Conveyors 400

Just because your working environment needs to be flexible it does not mean that your conveyor solution cannot be flexible too. 

Uni-flex expanding conveyors allow you to choose how and where you need a conveyor as due to it design they can be expanded if you require a longer system or bent into curves or even compacted for better storage when not in use. 

Uni-Flex comes in three basic configurations, skate wheel, gravity roller or Line shaft powered roller.

To find a flexible solution just call our experienced sales team with your handling requirements, and we will do the rest.
