To Taper or Not to Taper

To promote, present and provide rock-solid solutions, we actively collaborate with our Alba Partner Network – an elite network of OEMs, distributors and integrators who deliver top-tier material handling solutions. Together, we offer the highest level of product design, quality, engineering expertise and technical support.

Our Partner's Challenge

Recently, an Alba partner was tasked with making recommendations to a high-volume end user needing to increase an existing system’s throughput with minimal modifications to handle elevated production demands.

Alba's Standard Product Solution

For us, standard means the "norm." For you, standard means an affordable product with a faster delivery. One fairly simple way to handle our challenge: integrating True Tapered Chain Driven Live Roller Curves in lieu of turntables or transfers. The uninterrupted flow of pallets through our True Tapered CDLR Curves provides greater benefits to high-volume operations by eliminating lost time due to rotational travel or interrupted flow-through.

Defining the pallet construction and understanding the interface between the pallet and the conveyor (pallet orientation) is a critical consideration in any project. Without true tapered curves, roller centers on the inside radius may be tight but can open to six inches along the outside radius. This can be an issue due to capacity and stability requirements since the bottom boards must maintain proper orientation and be perpendicular to the rollers. Alba’s True Tapered Roller Curves ensure the pallet will travel on the same centerline at the curve’s entry and exit points; thus, maintaining proper orientation and positively impacting throughput.
