Sending Products to New Heights


Dorner Conveyors: Raising the Bar in Product Elevation

"Space is a premium." We hear it every day.

Gone are the days of expansive production facilities stretching far and wide; where getting from one side to another was a hike in itself. Today, plants are smaller and more streamlined to best use the available space to achieve maximum efficiencies. That often means moving product up or down in the manufacturing and packaging process.

Conveyor systems need to be robust to withstand 24/7 operation, yet agile and flexible to meet the challenging needs of modern manufacturing practices.

Dorner has been a pioneer in the development of conveyor platforms designed specifically for vertical elevation applications that are becoming more prevalent every day.

Choosing the Right Equipment to Increase You're ROI


When updating or designing new production lines, your ROI and find ways to increase it is always a major consideration. Efficiency is a key factor to increasing your ROI. When companies have machines and employees that are working at maximum effectiveness they are able to maximize production. One great way to maximize efficiency is to implement machines that allow fewer workers to do more. These range from packaging machines, to pick and place robotics, to conveyors. Conveyors can increase product flow between machines and reduce worker injury from bending up and down to get product from under machines. With the use of conveyors and other machines companies are able to maximize efficiency and reduce costs increasing their ROI.
