Walco Variable Speed Conveyors

When you’re assembling a large scale array for handling your mailing operations, it can be all too easy to overlook some of the most critical components in your setup. Everyone knows that you need quality feeders, inserters, printers, and so on, to get good results. However, what about the conveyers? These act as the roadways between the nodes of your system, and without them, you’re getting nowhere fast. That’s where Walco variable speed conveyers come in. Walco’s commitment to superlative manufacturing means that they put as much care into their conveyers as any of the other primary components of an industrial mailing operation.

These conveyers are built with a high torque capacity that means they’re able to stand up to the most rigorous use you can ask of them. Whether you’re running a small operation with relatively low volume, or a high volume operation that demands you run your conveyers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at high speeds, these machines will absolutely hold up.

The durability is only part of the story, however. These conveyers are meant to smartly fit into any existing mailing operation setup. That means that in addition to their dependability, they’re also flexible and customizable enough to adapt to your demands. The straight drive systems on these conveyers are configured to accept signals from elsewhere in your chain, such as from the printer or from the feeder. When the conveyer gets that signal, it can automatically adjust its speed accordingly, so that you’re always running at the appropriate speed for any given stage of the process, without having to manually adjust it yourself.

Anyone who has done mailing operations knows how critical this can be. The ability to control speed means you can maintain better control over each piece during the most critical parts of the operation, such as printing and drying, as well as inserting.
