Jervis B. Webb Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Daifuku Co. Ltd., has expanded its conveyor product line with the introduction of its new friction-drive conveyor system. The conveyor is suitable for overhead and inverted power and free conveyors and can be used to move anything from car bodies to small appliances.
The friction conveyor uses drive wheel technology to move the load along the conveyor path. It can travel up to 240 FPM and can move loads from 250 to 2,500 lbs.
