Many machine builders feel they can make conveyors cheaper by building conveyors in house. Numerous others however, have stopped building their own conveyors because they have found that buying a conveyor is actually cheaper. When total costs of design, drawings, raw materials, documentation, labor, overhead, replacement parts and on-site service are factored into the cost equation the cost of designing and creating your own conveyor can add up quickly. Customers who have switched from building their own conveyors to buying from a conveyor system from Dorner have commented that, updating systems they built was often difficult and time consuming, while purchasing conveyors freed up their employees to work on other projects.

- High speed, precision indexing
- Product orientation
- Space savings designs to fit into a machine
- Full line of conveying choices pre-engineered
- Dorner will modify or build a whole new conveyor that ensures reliable performance
- Application video-taped before the conveyor is built
Conveyors for Plastics Manufacturing and Material Handling
Many modern products are made of plastics. The light weight of these products can make the material handling, product movement and product positioning challenging. Often these products are made in molding machines that drop product near the floor, then the product has to be elevated for delivery to a bin for the next process. In addition robotic interfaces are used more and more to unload molding machines and position products for the next operation. This requires that your conveyor systems move parts to the exact spot every time.
