CCS Launches CarterFlex™ Conveyor
The CCS team is excited to announce the newest addition to our MDR conveyor lineup: CarterFlex™.
CarterFlex™ is a flexible, expandable and mobile MDR conveyor solution that can twist, bend and stretch to weave its way through even the most congested warehouse layouts. This solution’s primary function is similar to CarterMobile™ — it provides flexibility in the supply chain, allowing companies to move product from Point A to Point B without being constrained by traditional fixed conveyor systems like our CarterRoll™ line. However, unlike CarterMobile™, it is able to flex and bend into different shapes and features an easily adjustable roller center distance.
This new solution from CCS allows companies to quickly adjust the conveyor shape as floorspace availability changes and adjust the roller center to accommodate for smaller or larger package sizes if needed. As such, CarterFlex™ is ideal for loading and unloading areas, busy and crowded distribution centers, portable assembly lines and any supply chain that experiences frequent disruptions to its normal workflows.
CarterFlex™ in its fully compressed state is 23’ in total length with a 1.5” roller center. This is most useful for conveying small packages and for storing when not in use. At its maximum extended length, one unit of CarterFlex™ can stretch up to an impressive 64’ in total length with a 5” roller center.
CarterFlex™ features two modes of operation: continuous and accumulating. Continuous mode means the conveyor will simply continue running until turned off. Accumulating mode allows for zero pressure accumulation, where product can accumulate along the entire carrying surface without contact. Designed for multiple units to be connected, CarterFlex™ has mating overmold connectors to easily create long chains. Controls can be bussed from one 120VAC power source to multiple other units.
Like our other conveyor lines, CarterFlex™ is manufactured by CCS in one of our three US-based manufacturing facilities. This helps us ensure competitive pricing and quick turnaround times while guaranteeing top-notch equipment and quality support over the lifetime of the system.
