The reliable partner of air cargo and airline companies, Van Eck Trailers stands out with its innovative floor-integrated roller conveyor system, which has been developed in cooperation with Lufthansa.
The Van Eck roller conveyor system is designed with an automated driving unit system requiring less manpower when loading and unloading the high and heavy air cargo pallets.
Whereas 3.055 mm high rear entrance provides maximum loading capacity, the Eckspress Series can accommodate 3 m high main deck air-cargo pallets.
Offered with various superstructures, and with FRC, FNA or Pharma certification, Eckspress Series are built to make sure your vehicle is always ready for the next call.
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.
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.
