Some of the most challenging product and material handling applications are those for which easy access to the bottom of a product is required, such as with code dating, bottom inspection, and others.

In these cases side grip conveyors may be the ideal solution. Made with parallel belts that grip firmly by the sides, these systems move product along while allowing full access to the top and bottom, in addition to securing product during steep inclines.
