The Right Vacuum Belt Conveyor to Fit Your Needs

Vacuum belt conveyors provide a unique solution for a wide range of industries, including:

  • Health care
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Manufacturing
  • Metalworking

No Fly-Aways

Suction keeps the items on vacuum conveyor belts from lifting up and flying away. An internal vacuum pump that pulls air through perforations within the belt creates the seal.

Vacuum conveyors are the perfect answer for securing a whole variety of small, lightweight parts and flat or thin items, such as:

  • Plastic parts
  • Sheets of paper
  • Small pouches
  • Cardboard
  • Empty plastic packaging
  • Leaflets

The range of applications is equally broad and can include:

  • Small part handling and positioning
  • Inspection
  • Part and package infeed and outfeed
  • Precision part movement
  • Manual or automated assembly
  • Work holding
  • Printing

Custom Fit

Dorner Conveyors designs and manufactures vacuum belt conveyors to custom fit each customer’s application. A full range of configurations and sizes are available. This allows you to optimize your physical space while prioritizing production needs and budget concerns.

Dorner’s vacuum conveyor solution incorporates a custom bed plate with a vacuum chamber to focus the suction in the proper place. The company drills a specific number of vacuum port holes, depending on the customer’s needs.

Further customization includes developing the right belt and hole spacing, pattern and size for each application and product type. Expert control technology combined with the vacuum conveyors ensures precise part location, no matter what type of item.

Dorner works with each customer from concept to completion, including a full needs analysis, CAD modeling and mechanical design. A wide range of accessories and add-ons are available. For instance, friction belting is available for rigid parts such as plastic caps, ceramic wafers and glassware, while electrically conductive belting is available for thin products like paper, cloth or plastic film.
