Dorner exhibited its packaging, automation and sanitary conveyors at Pack Expo 2021. The flexibility of its FlexMove Helix and Wedge conveyors were demonstrated as the equipment moved product on tight turns around existing equipment. The FlexMove flexible chain conveyor platform is designed for effective horizontal and vertical product movement on a continuous run driven by a single gearmotor when floor space is limited. As such, the conveyor provides facilities with greater flexibility in layout for applications such as accumulation, buffering, cooling product and more, the company says. The FlexMove Helix conveyor’s infeed and outfeed can be positioned at any height or angle. Meanwhile, custom infeed and outfeed lengths allow the conveyor to extend beyond the spiral, reducing the number of conveyors required. To support products that need to be held in place with more security while moving up and down steep inclines, the conveyor features its Helix Wedge. The Helix Wedge conveys product by gripping both of its sides to move it in a smooth, efficient manner. Helix conveyors feature continuous 360-degree turns for moving product up or down in a vertical space.
