Move Product Around Machinery with a Reverse LPZ Conveyor



A traditional LPZ conveyor is ideal for elevation changes in some facilities, but other times its footprint is too large for what the space allows.

A recent customer faced this problem when they needed to move product between conveyors, but the area wouldn’t work for a regular Z-frame conveyor due to a machine being in the way.

Helical Conveyor Solution


Dorner’s 2200 Series SmartFlex line capabilities, such as the SmartFlex TwistAlpine, and Helical are designed to give customers added flexibility. The SmartFlex Helix allows for elevation changes as part of the conveyor system, raising or lowering products in a small foot print. The foot print for the elevation section can be as small a 10’ x 10’ which is ideal for congested areas where long inclines or alpines are not practical.

Powered Side Guide Highlighted on Dorner’s SmartFlex Conveyor with FlexMove Technology


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. 

While there are many different ways to handle bottle transfers from one conveyor to the next, often times the solution relies on product back-pressure to lessen the chance of the transferring bottle falling forward and on its side.

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.

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.
