Skatewheel conveyors are unpowered assemblies used to move flat bottomed objects from one process area to another by traversing a series of skates. These free rotation skates have bearings that are mounted on a series of axles in a rigid frame. For proper handling of materials, there should be a minimum of five skates on three axles that are in contact with the load at all times. Skatewheel conveyors are used in moving lightweight loads in manufacturing, assembly, warehousing, and logistics operations.
