Skid Conveyor Systems

Fata Automation is a global leader in the supply of skid conveyor systems with installations dating back to 1977.  We have over 175 systems installed, amounting to over 80 miles (130 km) of conveyor.

Skid conveyor transfers a product carried on fixtures with two longitudinal runners called skids. Skid systems offer an efficient and quiet mode of transport of skids in both longitudinal and transverse directions.  Standard designs are available for both dry and wet area applications up to 1500 kg (3300 lbs.) load with roller bed transfer speeds up 108 mpm 354 fpm.  Custom engineered designs are also available for loads up to 4600 kg (10,000 lbs.)

Skid conveyor products are modular in design that have on-board electrical components such as VFD, switches, cords, and trunk cables as a complete module using common components such as belts, rollers, and motors.
