SOVEX Belt Vehicle Loaders on Traversing Rails – for facilities seeking loading and unloading functionality at more than one loading bay using the same machine

SOVEX Belt Vehicle Loaders can be mounted onto either raised or sunken rails at a facility.  This option enables ease of motion between predetermined boundaries to serve multiple doors with a single vehicle loader.  With all of the features and benefits of the standard Belt Vehicle Loader, the Traversing option leads to a more flexible perimeter of a premises; freeing up space and access to dock doors for necessary other functions such as movement of forklifts, roll cages and pallet trucks.

SOVEX Belt Vehicle Loaders on Traversing Rails provides the following benefits

  • Increased flexibility and functionality at loading bays / dock doors
  • Simple and safe traversing of vehicle loaders through motorised movement controls
  • Cost effective solution enabling the use of multiple docks with a single vehicle loader
  • Rail length, positioning and proximity sensors configurable to suit site properties
  • Provides increased upside to SOVEX Belt Vehicle Loaders without large additional costs
  • Reduces vehicle turnaround time by around 30%
  • Minimises manual handling by up to 30%
  • Designed with strategically located, front boom controls
  • Safe and easy to service and maintain through strategically located access panels

Fields of Application

  • Parcel sorting hubs, smaller distribution centres and 3PL facilities
  • Particularly suitable for flexible site layouts with different functions at the loading bay – namely movement of roll cages and palletised goods on forklifts and pallet trucks
  • Ideal for conveying loose loads, parcels, boxed goods, tyres, totes and large unconventionally shaped items
  • Sites where loading and unloading functions are equally important
