Mobile Conveyors, or Manual Transfer Vehicles (TVM), are provided in various configurations. The basic device includes nonpowered conveyor supported by nonpowered wheels. The vehicle and loads on it must be pushed manually. Powered conveyor may be provided on either powered or nonpowered wheels. Guidance may be provided by either flat, inverted angle, or infloor guide rails. Controls range from none, for nonpowered vehicles, to operator pushbutton controls to fully automatic applications.
Typical applications for these vehicles include bridging between two stationary conveyors, or from a stationary conveyor to an existing process machine.
