Many conveyor system manufacturers use the term “modular” to describe their product, but they rarely live up to the standard of a flexible manufacturing system. Interroll product types are authentically modular because they are made of modules that can be replaced, rearranged, removed, and reintegrated with minimal effort and without additional equipment.
Interchangeable modules should also be able to work with a variety of technologies to avoid costly replacements. When a conveyor is not flexible, upgrades are more complicated and can result in purchasing unnecessary new equipment to comply with technology advancements.
Lastly, different production operations may require additional accessories, such as stands, rails, and sensors. These accessories should be able to mount with ease, without welding or drilling holes in walls or other equipment.
