Dorner recently worked with a customer who needed to convey small plastic bottles. The solution required a number of different transfers from conveyors and other machinery.

It is a modified 2200 Series conveyor where the conveyor frame is wider than the belt.

Last week, we exhibited our latest technologies for the automation industry at Automate 2017 in Chicago, IL. Thank you to everyone that was able to stop by our booth and see our conveyor systems. If you weren't able to make it to the show, take a look at the video below to see what you missed.
Conveyors are a critical
. They may not be the machinery slicing product or packaging the food, but when your conveying system goes down and takes your production line with it, the productivity and profits lost aren’t any less costly than if it had been your star piece of equipment. Conveyors don’t require as much time and maintenance as your larger equipment and machines, but a little preventative maintenance—and keeping the right parts in stock—can go a long way.
The importance of the right parts
The trend towards slimmer maintenance staffs has left many food manufacturers at a disadvantage when it comes to preventive maintenance and stocking parts. Making sure the bench stock is well-supplied comes far down the list of priorities when there are moving parts that need attention.
