6 Advantages of Garment Conveyor Systems
We’ve said it before. Most people’s first exposure to a garment conveyor system happens at the dry cleaners. As a kid, how cool was it to watch all the garment bags swing by only to have the overhead conveyor magically stop at yours?
The Advantages of Garment Conveyors
You may have learned everything you need to know about life in kindergarten. Similarly, you saw many of the advantages of overhead garment conveyors when you visited the cleaners.
- They Are Versatile – Many dry cleaning operations have limited floor space. No square inch can be wasted. Overhead conveyors let operators use the space above their heads for garment storage and retrieval. Also, tight corner sections and an almost infinite number of configurations help the system work in even the smallest spaces.
Easy to Install – Dry cleaners can choose to set up their own system or have the manufacturer do it for them.
- Protects People and Garments – Enclosed track conveyors mean that users don’t have to worry about coming in contact with overhead conveyor chains. And dust shields help to keep garments clean
- Durable and Reliable – There are many overhead conveyor systems for garment handling that have been working problem-free for decades.
- Quiet and Clean – Chances are when you saw that first system at the cleaners, you didn’t really hear it. Noise isn’t good for business, so overhead systems are designed to operate quietly by enclosing the moving track. The enclosed track and housing for all motors and drives also help cleaners maintain an attractive establishment.
- Easy to Update – Hopefully a dry cleaning business grows over time. An overhead system can be added to and reconfigured to meet the changing needs of the business.
