Dorner’s SmartFlex Helix is a compact spiral and helical, flexible chain conveyor. Applications for the Helix include accumulation, buffering, cooling product between processes or machines and more.

Features and benefits include:

  • Infeed and outfeed may be positioned at any angle or height
  • Small footprint maximizes valuable floor space
  • Patented side roller chain reduces corner friction allowing for faster speeds and smooth product handling
  • Custom infeed and outfeed lengths allow the conveyor to extend beyond spiral, reducing the number of conveyors required

The SmartFlex Wedge Elevator is constructed with two parallel SmartFlex conveyors utilizing a specialty rubber cleated chain. It’s designed to move products securely between the production floor and other elevations. The products are gripped between opposing conveyors lined vertically or horizontally.

Wedge elevators are ideal for environments requiring compact footprints, transitions between travel orientations, de-pucking operations and creating passageways on the production floor.

The 3200 Series Modular Belt Conveyor features a sleek design and high speed and heavy load capabilities.

The high-performance chain provides a true low side conveyor and allows for up to 4 curves on a single conveyor.
