Telescopic conveyors, also known as extendable conveyors, are the perfect warehouse solution for automating the process of loading and unloading goods. These extendable conveyors are adjustable, allowing you to operate at a variety of lengths and widths within your warehouse and cut out labor-intensive, manual transportation.
Telescopic conveyors can also be extended into the truck trailer, allowing you to transport materials directly from the truck, through the dock door, and into the warehouse. This improves speed and efficiency throughout the entire loading and unloading process.
At Southwest Warehouse Solutions, we provide superior VFD-controlled telescopic conveyor systems that make shipping and receiving a breeze. With extension and retraction, adjustable belt speeds, and a high live load capacity, our telescopic conveyors help you improve productivity and reach your material handling goals as seamlessly and efficiently as possible.
Speed, safety, and efficiency are essential components of any successful warehouse operation. Southwest Warehouse Solutions’ telescoping conveyor systems are designed to enhance each of these. Here’s how:
With seamless extension and retraction, you can customize your loading and unloading process for each shipment, making it as streamlined as possible. By hooking up our telescopic conveyors to your existing conveyor system, you can significantly cut down on both the time spent loading and unloading and the number of employees required to do it. With a telescopic conveyor integrated into your warehouse processes, your other employees can focus on additional tasks, increasing the overall productivity of your warehouse.
Our extendable conveyors make material handling much safer. By automating the loading and unloading process, you can avoid repeated strain and injuries from overexertion. By reducing the amount of effort required to load and unload goods and implementing safer handling practices, you also avoid unnecessary downtime—your employees can remain on the floor and maintain productivity throughout the day.
If you don’t have a powered telescopic conveyor, your employees will spend much of their time walking or transporting goods on a forklift between the trailer and the end of your permanent conveyor system. This much idle time is not conducive to a productive, efficient warehouse, so integrating a time-saving solution is essential. Telescopic conveyors eliminate idle time and get goods where they need to go quickly.
