Spiral Conveyors

If space in your warehouse is limited or there are multiple storage levels then spiral conveyors are an ideal solution. Spiral conveyors are a proven technology and CSL have a wealth of experience of designing automation systems with a spiral conveyor integrated. Spiral conveyors can be used to lower or raise goods between levels, including mezzanine floors effectively.

Types of spiral conveyor 

Spiral conveyors are a unique type of material handling system designed to move goods vertically or horizontally in a continuous flow. Unlike traditional conveyors that move items on a flat plane, spiral conveyors use a spiral configuration to transport materials in a more compact and space-efficient manner.

There are many advantages to using a spiral system as part of the overall automation solution including:

  • Space saving:– Unlike longer inclined belts a spiral takes up less physical space and is the easiest way to move goods and materials.
  • Flexibility: Spiral conveyors can be adapted to any warehouse layout and they can be integrated with existing systems providing full flexibility. Fully reversible as standard.
  • Energy efficient: Spiral conveyors use a single drive motor along continuous movement, making it more energy efficient than other lift products.
  • High throughput: Spiral conveyors are able to handle large volumes, increasing throughput and enhancing productivity. 

Spiral conveyor can be used in most applications from factories, fulfilment centres, ecommerce and 3PL organisations and can help improve the efficiency of your processes.

FAQs

K
L
What is a spiral conveyor?

A spiral conveyor is a conveying system that moves products vertically. It is ideally suited for limited spaces and multi-floor elevation requirements.

K
L
How does a gravity spiral conveyor differ from other spiral conveyors?

A gravity spiral conveyor uses the force of gravity to move products downward without needing external power sources.

K
L
What materials are suitable for spiral conveyor belts?

Our spiral conveyors can handle a range of materials. These include irregular items, cartons, boxes, totes, bags, and more.

K
L
Can the spiral conveyor system be customised to fit my facility's unique space and requirements?

Absolutely! Our designs can be tailored with widths from 200mm-600mm and heights up to 20m/60ft and beyond. Multi-lane and stacked solutions are also available.

K
L
Are spiral conveyors safe for transporting fragile items?

Yes, our conveyors are designed to ensure a smooth and safe transit, suitable even for fragile items.

K
L
How fast can products be transported using the spiral conveyor system?

Our systems can reach speeds of up to 90m/minute, ensuring swift and continual throughput.

K
L
What are the advantages of spiral conveyors?

The main advantage of spiral conveyors is they make use of all the space in your warehouse. As they transport items vertically, the footprint of a spiral conveyor is relatively small compared to other conveyors.

Creating relationships that last

We are proud to have completed installations over more than 25 years for many major organisations. We have forged strong relationships and continue to provide automation solutions through ongoing maintenance or follow-on projects. Constantly working with our customers to meet and exceed their needs.

“I have found working with CSL the ideal partnership, they understood the brief and worked closely with CEF to ensure the design met all of the criteria. The support from start to finish was excellent. The project ran smoothly from start to finish. The system has made our new warehouse very efficient and allowed us to increase the throughput”  

Craig Marks

Divisional Manager, CEF Online

“As this was a new facility it was difficult to visualise the conveyor system prior to the mezzanine floor installation, but CSL provided a detailed 3D drawing which included both the mezzanine and the conveyors which brought clarity to this. The install process was smooth and the end results have allowed us to increase control, flexibility & volumes”

Dan Corrigan

Head of Logistics & Operations Dev, Wiggle

“We have worked with CSL previously and after many years of reliable operation we decided to use CSL again to design, supply and carry out the installation. As with the last system the benefits became almost immediately evident”
