Dorner FlexMove Conveyors Deliver the Flexibility, Productivity Your Operation Requires

Floor space is a valuable commodity in today’s manufacturing plants and warehousing operations. Facilities are constantly expected to do more in the same amount of space, with little choice in where or how to place equipment and machinery.

Conveyors can make or break a facility’s ability to put its space to optimal use. Old-style, bulky conveyors can hamper operations, while flexible, responsive systems can make everything better.

Here are four characteristics to look for when seeking the best conveyor for your operation:

  1. Flexible layout – the ability to maneuver in tight conditions around machinery to maximize floor space is important, as is the ability for the conveyor to go vertical.
  2. Increased production and capacity capabilities – the right conveyor system will boost your production capabilities, allowing you to reliably move more product in less time.
  3. Efficiency through automation – the conveyor that best suits your application will use automation to improve production speed, increase accuracy and free employees for other tasks.
  4. Ease of purchase, speed of installation – the best conveyor in the world won’t do you any good if the purchase process requires you to jump through too many hoops or if installation is complicated and time-consuming.

This may sound like a daunting list of qualifications, but there’s good news: Dorner’s FlexMove conveyors hit the mark in every instance. These conveyors not only accommodate tight corners but also can move product up and down with minimal space required. They’re also capable of twisting 360-degrees to transport products vertically in an extremely small footprint.

FlexMove conveyors also offer important advantages in boosting capacity and production capabilities, especially for small parts: they come with a 5/8” nose bar transfer to safely maneuver parts as small as 3” in diameter at speeds of up to 200 feet per minute.

Plus, FlexMove delivers the automation you need to allow your employees to use their time and energy for more complex, higher-priority tasks, improving efficiency and productivity.

And Dorner assembles and tests every FlexMove conveyor before breaking it down into sub-assemblies for shipment. This enables you to quickly and easily install your conveyor once it reaches your facility.

FlexMove truly is as flexible as its name implies. Aside from tight spaces and complex configurations, these conveyors are used for a wide range of other applications, such as:

  • Part handling and orientation
  • Transfers
  • Assembly automation
  • Machine conveyance
  • Elevation changes
  • Accumulation
  • Buffering

Best of all, Dorner’s FlexMove conveyors are suitable for a wide range of B2B and B2C markets, such as industrial automation, packaging, food, medical, life sciences, and health and beauty.
