Dorner’s History of Low Profile Conveyors

Dorner isn’t just the leading provider of low profile conveyors; we’re also the inventor of the low profile conveyor! In the 1970s, the Dorners needed a conveyor that could efficiently remove scrap from under their dies in their shop. Any available conveyors, however, did not fit under the die between the bolsters. 

That didn’t stop the Dorners. They developed and patented a new radial thrust bearing and partnered with belting companies to create the perfect flexible yet durable belt. In 1973, the Low Profile 4100 industrial conveyor was born. 

Soon, conveyor sales were greater than their tool and die sales. Eventually, the tool and die business was phased out. Since then, we’ve expanded our conveyor offerings to include a full line of low profile, aluminum frame conveyors for virtually every application. Today, our conveyors are used in over 1,200 different industry segments.
