Nedpack (Booth 973) introduced a vertical conveyor called the Prorunner Mk5 that handles vertical sorting between different floors or levels in a warehouse.

“If you have several mezzanine floors you need to get totes or products to, this vertical conveyor can be a good solution,” said Jaco Hooijer, sales manager for Nedpack.

Prorunner acts as an alternative to other types of systems for vertical movement such as spiral or inclined belt conveyors, Hooijer said. The Prorunner needs only a small space footprint, he added, and never tilts products, which can be a concern with some goods.

ProMat 2011 will be held March 21 - 24, 2011 at McCormick Place South in Chicago. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry.
