RB Roller Bed Conveyor

Hytrol Conveyor Company is the industry standard for conveyor systems and material handling systems, including roller bed conveyors. Our Model RB Hytrol conveyors are designed to move heavier loads and more durable than traditional slider belt conveyors. By using rollers as the bed surface, roller bed conveyors reduce friction between the belt and the frame. These conveyor systems are great for assembly, inspection, and packing.
