Activated roller belt (ARB) technology enables the optimisation of conveyance solutions, helping to improve functionality, throughput and reliability, while at the same time reducing footprint and total system costs. ARB technology is used throughout the globe in a diverse range of different industries and sectors. In total, there are more than 7,500 conveyors in function today.
In this post, we take a closer look at the product and discuss how it can benefit a company.
Optimised Throughput and Simplified Controls
ARB conveyors eliminate blockages and delays related to congestion, helping to optimise throughput. This high level of efficiency is achieved through the use of technologically advanced computer programming systems. Accurate digital simulations are created allowing for conveyance solutions to be tailored to the exact needs of a customer.
Despite the cutting edge technology used to programme an ARB equipped conveyor, the systems feature simplified controls. This is a key factor that helps to ensure that activated roller belt equipment provides a smooth and intuitive user experience.
ARB equipped conveyance solutions are extremely versatile and can carry out a whole range of diverse functions. These include sorting, merging, turning and singulating. The adaptable systems may simultaneously replace multiple other conveyors. This is a factor that can help to drastically the reduce footprint and complexity of a conveyor system.

Activated Roller Belt Equipped Conveyance Solutions (ARBE) are conveyor systems that use the Activated Roller Belt technology in order to provide efficient and precise movement of items. These systems are typically used in manufacturing and logistics environments, where they can be used for sorting, merging, and aligning items. Some features that ARBE conveyors may include are:
- Motorized rollers within the belt, which can be controlled independently to guide and control movement of items
- Sensors and control systems to detect and track items on the conveyor
- Integration with other equipment and systems, such as barcode scanners or robotics, to automate sorting and tracking processes.
- High-performance and durability in high traffic areas.
- Inclined or decline conveyors
- Curve conveyors
- The ability to handle a wide range of products, from small items to large and heavy loads.
