Our Side Grip Conveyors are used to take products from production floor level to a higher level or vice versa. Products are wedged between opposing conveyors aligned vertically or horizontally and are moved swiftly but securely.
Side Grip Conveyors are easy to construct, lightweight and have compact footprints. Its rapid transfer rate makes it ideal for use in continuous, high capacity operations such as packaging lines. Built with aluminum or stainless steel, it meets the stringent hygiene standard required for medical and cosmetic packaging.
They can be configured differently for a variety of uses, such as a transition between different levels, depucking operations, inverted rinse operations, and even for creating a passage way on the production floor.
Constructed with two parallel HI FLEX conveyors utilizing a urethane gripper chain that wedge the sides of the product to lift or lower it vertically.
Products are fed into the Side Grip Conveyor from a horizontal conveyor with at least a product length gap to avoid hitting each other while going through the vertical transition. Products then exit onto a horizontal conveyor.

Vertical transfer can be through a wheel corner or plain bend corner. Wheel corner is generally limited to product less than 100mm in length.
