1) Conveyor

A horizontal, inclined, or vertical device for moving or transporting bulk material, packages, or objects in a path predetermined by the design of the device, and having points of loading and discharge, fixed or selective.

2) Gravity conveyor

Conveyor on which materials are moved by gravity or by a person, as opposed to a conveyor on which materials are moved with powered belts or rollers.

3) A-frame conveyor

A conveyor support frame with main members set on slopes suggesting the letter "A".

4) Accumulation conveyor

Any conveyor designed to permit accumulation of packages, objects, or carriers.  May be roller, live roller, roller slat, belt, vibrating, power-and-free or tow conveyors.

5) Chute conveyor

The chute conveyor is the simplest example of gravity operated conveyor. Not unlike a child's sliding board, unit simply slides down a straight or spiraling metal or plastic chute to it ultimate destination.

6) Powered conveyor

Conveyor of any type that's movement is driven by motors and drives.  Power may be electrical or pneumatic.

7) Slat conveyor

A conveyor employing one or more endless chains to which non-overlapping, non-interlocking, spaced slats are attached.

8) Chain conveyor

A form of powered conveyor used to transport heavy unit loads such as pallets and industrial containers. These conveyors can be single or double chain strand in configuration. This chain is not only the driving force but it is also the part which comes in direct contact with the load and provides friction which pulls the load forward. In some cases, free rollers on either side of or between the chain provide additional support to the load. Short sections of double strand chain conveyors are a common means of transferring loads at right angle to/from another straight section of roller conveyor.

9) Arm conveyor

A conveyor consisting of an endless belt, one or more chains, to which are attached projecting arms, or shelves, for handling packages or objects in a vertical or inclined path.

10) Overhead conveyor

A form of conveyor consisting of a continuous chain running beneath a continuous, stationary, flanged rail. Individual carriers spaced equidistant along the length of the conveyor are suspended from the chain. The chain pulls the carriers. Vertical support is derived from the fact that the carriers are also connected to a small trolley with wheels that roll cross sections, trolleys and carriers. A few common carriers include a tray, platform or simple hook. A less common alternative to the chain drive is a worm drive.

11) Platform conveyor

Another form of the conventional poternoster (See definition for Poternoster) is the platform conveyor that consists of multiple, equally spaced battens which form rigid horizontal surfaces in one direction (up and down) but behave like the front of a roll top desk on the return. Platform conveyor is an effective means of moving a continuous flow of pallets or other unit loads between levels. Another variation of the posternoster concept, which permits both vertical and horizontal movement of load, consists of freely swinging platforms suspended between two parallel chains.

12) Belt conveyor

A conveyor that utilizes endless belts, made from fabric, rubber, plastic, leather, or metal, energized by drives and operating over those drives, tail ends, bend terminals, belt idlers or slider bed.  Handles bulk materials, packages and any object placed directly on the belt.

13) Conveyor belt

A belt used to carry materials and transmit power required to move the load being conveyed.

14) Roller conveyor

A series of roller supported in a frame over which objects are advanced manually, by gravity, or by power.

15) Trolley conveyor

A series of trolleys with loads suspended from them, supported by an overhead track and connected by endless propelling medium such as chain or cable.
