Unique Features
Roller Conveyor System

Designed with reliability and lifespan in mind, Van Eck roller conveyor system consists of four rows of pneumatic roller conveyors with twin airbag and twin rollers – each roller 40 mm wide and with 50 mm diameter.

Furthermore, each roller has two bearings instead of one to minimize friction for a smoother loading and unloading operations.

Integrated pallet stoppers

Pallet stoppers are positioned in front and behind every pallet – total of 10 units.

The rollers are controlled by a 4-valve system in a waterproof box under the trailer platform. With auto-down option, the system ensures the rollers are automatically retracted below the floor level before the vehicle switches to driving position.

The roller conveyor system is fitted with an automated drive system requiring less manpower when loading and unloading the high and heavy air cargo pallets.
