LEWCO Parcel Handling Belt Conveyor

- Tuesday, August 23, 2016

LEWCO has extensive experience designing and manufacturing equipment for Retail E-commerce Distribution industries.

As a FedEx Ground Approved Supplier, LEWCO recently supplied one of their Major Integrators with slider bed belt conveyors as part of a larger parcel handling system. 

These units were provided as part of the Unload Lanes located at each dock door where full trucks deliver their loads.  The unload area consists of sixteen of our welded belt conveyors that were designed to meet FedEx specifications and needs within their facilities.

An operator places each package onto a gravity roller conveyor that feeds LEWCO belt conveyors that are traveling at speeds of 120 feet per minute. The slider beds is inclined approximately 11 degrees until they reach the desired elevation before leveling out for the remaining 9 feet of run, where they are fed onto other conveyors that transport them through the sortation system. 

24 inch high welded guardrail prevents parcels from falling off the units, and the operators are protected from injury with the full length bottom guards eliminating gaps and pinch points, per FedEx Ground Specifications.
