Power roller conveyors, also known as motorized or live roller conveyors, utilize motorized rollers to efficiently move loads around your warehouse or distribution center. Depending on the load, conveyors of this type might use belts, chains or O-rings to power rollers.
Unlike gravity roller conveyors that leverage the power of natural gravity to move products, powered roller conveyors use motors. Because of this, this type of equipment can manage moving items uphill, on a level plane and for longer distances.
Moreover, with precise controls for roller speed management, operators have more control over the movement and position of goods. This makes power roller conveyors an efficient and versatile system for managing the movement of all kinds of products:
Adding a power roller conveyor to your warehouse floor can offer
some key benefits to your operations.
Power roller conveyor systems use straight, curved, incline and decline sections that are easily configurable to meet your changing logistical needs.
With better control over conveyor speed and direction, operators can hone in on the perfect placement and routing for better inventory management.
With the addition of powered rollers, these systems can move goods fast and smoothly over long runs. This can increase the speed of your everyday workflows.
Powered roller conveyor systems can easily integrate into other warehouse systems for a fully automated material handling process — reducing labor costs while increasing productivity.
By adding a power roller conveyor to your facility, you can reduce the need for manual lifting and carrying. This can significantly reduce the chances of worker injury.
Because they’re highly versatile, powered roller conveyors are used in various industries. This includes:
If there’s a need for moving heavy or large items across a facility, powered roller conveyors can quickly become essential warehouse equipment.
While power roller conveyors are durable and reliable, even the best equipment wears down and needs replacing eventually. If you’ve got an older conveyor system and are wondering if it’s time to consider a replacement, check out our blog on the topic.
We regularly stock used powered roller conveyors for all the top industry names:
Power roller conveyors come in a few different configurations. Whether it’s belt-over roller conveyors or flex conveyors for better space management, here are a few common types of power roller conveyors you might find in our inventory.
This type of power roller conveyor leverages a belt system over the roller — providing a flat surface for products sent across the conveyor. These systems are used when live roller configurations don’t fit a facility's exact needs for products or applications. The belted surface offers better support for products, more accurate control and better grip on items on incline or decline sections.
Great for picking and packing operations, accumulation conveyors have the ability to drive segments or zones to allow conveyed items to either stop or collect, depending on programmed instructions. Whether it’s individual items for direct-to-consumer applications or carton handling for a distribution center, accumulation conveyors help improve efficiency, reduce product damage and reduce overall labor costs.
As the name suggests, power flex conveyors offer versatile options for product transport. Often utilized at key areas in a warehouse, like at the loading dock or at the end of conveyor discharge, these conveyors can be either extended or contracted as needed — adjusting to fit the specific needs of your facility in real-time. Unlike gravity flex conveyors, these systems use a motorized drive component allowing them to move product over inclines and long distances while not taking up a lot of space on your warehouse floor.

Adding a power roller conveyor system to your facility can come with plenty of benefits. But, like with any significant equipment purchase, there are a few considerations you should keep in mind. To help you along the way, let’s explore a few essential things to consider before making a purchase.
Always carefully consider the types of products you’ll need to move with your power roller conveyor system. Understanding product weight, dimensions and properties can help you select the right type of conveyor system.
In many situations, a power roller conveyor will need to work with other existing warehouse equipment. This can include everything from complex pick module equipment to other conveyor systems. Always make sure the equipment you purchase can work smoothly with your existing setup.
Power roller conveyors, much like other material handling equipment, come with safety risks. To keep your team safe, be sure to review the safety features of a specific piece of equipment. Some conveyor risks include entanglement in the drive system, abrasion on rollers or belts, severing in screws and much more.
