The C-conveyor: Ideal for intralogistics in industry and trade

The C-conveyor, often referred to as a C-conveyor, is a so-called vertical conveyor. Unlike S-conveyors, which are typically elevator systems, C-conveyors are used to bridge the height within a material system. This often refers to automated systems.

As unit loads are moved vertically (upwards or downwards), only a small amount of space is required for the use of a C-conveyor. This leaves more space for additional storage capacity.

The advantages of a C-conveyor at a glance:

  • Easy, vertical handling of stored goods
  • Large space saving compared to inclined conveyors (inclined conveying)
  • High conveying capacity
  • Low noise development
  • Possible for food handling

Application areas of a C-conveyor

The C-conveyor is designed as a vertical conveyor so that all levels of the conveyor system are accessible. The continuous movement ensures a safe material flow. C-conveyors are therefore generally used in intralogistics, for example upstream of a high-bay warehouse.
