Flexible Packaging Solutions
Dorner’s industry leading product handling conveyor platforms are ideal for flexible packaging solutions. The conveyors can be engineered or configured to aid in the creation and efficiency of packaging lines manufacturing products in flexible packages. These packages are made of soft or flexible material in the form of a bag or pouch creating unique handling opportunities. Illustrated are solutions for handling flexible packaging efficiently for orientation, rotation, standing up, laying down, 90 degree transfer, and elevation. Some applications usages are inspection, bar code reading, labeling, orientating, and settling. Flexible Packaging Brochure - Product Info

Power Transfer Brochure
Dorner's fabric belts incorporate v-guides on the underside of the belt. The v-guide is a belt tracking method used to keep the belt running straight and true on the end rollers and the conveyor frame.
Advantages of V-guided Belt Tracking:
- Provides belt tracking throughout the length of the conveyor bed.
- Tight frame width to belt width dimensions can be held.
- Very robust tracking method. A V-guided belt riding in a V-grooved roller is a positive engagement system.
- Multiple traction surface options such as lagging, knurling or grooving.
- Straight roller provides consistent transfer for small or odd shaped product.
Rack and Pinion
Dorner's belted conveyors (2200 & 3200) have rack and pinion tension systems for faster belt change and access to the conveyor. This is accomplished by incorporating a rack and pinion device into the conveyor frame. Two racks are slide-ably mounted to the conveyor frame. Turning the pinion shaft then pushes on the bearing blocks to move the roller and add belt tension. The pinion runs the full width of the frame and contacts both racks, which moves the bearing blocks evenly and parallel while turning from a single point.
The LPZ Series is a line of conveyors engineered to be flexible. These conveyors are available in a horizontal to an incline, z-frame, or a nose-over. Critical flexibility is engineered into the LPZ's adjustable knuckle which allows the offering to adjust angles from 25 to 60 degrees. Product Info
