Many companies today are operating under tight parameters when it comes to available space in their plants. Machinery and equipment take up large amounts of valuable real estate, and traditional, bulky conveyor systems further compound the space issue by inadvertently cordoning off areas, reducing the amount of floor space even more.
While companies are looking for more space to operate, they’re also demanding greater flexibility in their machinery and equipment to meet changing applications.
This is especially true for conveyors. Modern conveyor systems are at the forefront of moving product through all phases of production, as such, applications require them to be agile and flexible, yet powerful enough to withstand 24/7 operation.
Merging those characteristics together in a single conveyor platform brings a higher level of functionality and automation to the way products are produced and moved.
That platform is Dorner’s FlexMove conveyor. Here are five reasons why FlexMove conveyors are the ideal solution to help companies position themselves to meet the production and fulfillment challenges of today and tomorrow.
1. They provide the best in layout flexibility
Some application designs dictate product to be moved in and around equipment and machinery. To accomplish that requirement, conveyors need to perform tight turns in limited spaces.
FlexMove conveyors provide the ultimate in layout flexibility by snaking tightly around machinery to maximize available floor space.
Tight turns aren’t the only advantage they provide for applications. FlexMove conveyors allow customers to find new space by going up. These conveyors move product up or down through corners and straights, and provides capability for vertical incline with minimal space.
FlexMove is capable of twisting 360° degree turns to move product vertically with an extremely small footprint. The platform features a patent-pending chain design that allows the conveyor to maintain speeds and loads through an angled curve, further enhancing its flexibility in and around machinery and equipment.2. They increase production capabilities and capacity
FlexMove conveyors are designed to move small- to medium-sized product efficiently and quickly. The platform is engineered to increase production capabilities and capacity in numerous ways, including small-part transfers.
Some platforms are built with a large, rounded tail, which is fine for transferring larger parts off the conveyor. However, a larger, rounded tail leaves a gap at the point of transfer from the conveyor belt to the next process (machine or equipment), which is not ideal for small parts as they could fall into that gap and become jammed.
If the application involves transferring small parts, a small nosebar feature to eliminate the gap at point of transfer is necessary. FlexMove comes with a 5/8” nose bar transfer to safely transfer parts as small as 3” diameter at speeds of up to 200 feet per minute for increased productivity.3. They offer efficiency through automation
FlexMove conveyors are an integral component of your production process, and the perfect solution to help grow your business. Much more than simply moving product from one point to the next, FlexMove conveyors enable you to grow by:
The FlexMove platform brings functionality and automation to your business, and that liberates your staff from having to focus on tedious jobs related to the production process. Their time and energy can now be better allocated to more complex, higher-priority tasks – which makes them more productive and valuable to your operation.4. They’re ideal for numerous markets and applications
Consumers’ buying habits are dictating that they want their products now, and companies need to respond in kind with fast, accurate and reliable service. This is where the FlexMove platform excels.
The conveyors are engineered to help companies large and small achieve greater productivity by helping them stay ahead of an ever-changing competitive landscape. Markets already seeing the value of FlexMove conveyors include:
With so many practical applications serving both B2B and B2C markets, the FlexMove platform is built ready to work.5. They are easy to buy, fast to install
FlexMove conveyors are designed and shipped to keep things simple for you. Each conveyor is completely assembled and tested at Dorner. It is then partially disassembled into sub-assemblies for shipping. This means fast and easy installation, allowing you to experience the value of your FlexMove conveyor right away.
The single-piece aluminum frame construction with T-slot allows for easy-to-install add-ons and customized design changes to meet your exact application. Move loads up to 600 pounds at speeds up to 250 feet per minute – all with a high degree of accuracy and automation with Dorner’s FlexMove conveyor platform.
For companies looking to get more from their conveyor system to better maximize their floor space while also meeting changing applications, Dorner’s FlexMove conveyor platform is the answer.

Dorner’s move to begin building its top-selling 2200 Series low-profile belt conveyors this month in Germany enables customers throughout Europe to take delivery of their equipment faster than ever before.
Dorner is an industry leader in the design, application, manufacturing and integration of precision industrial and sanitary conveyor systems.
Production of the 2200 Series is expected to start in mid-September at Dorner GmbH in Jülich, Germany. The low profile 2200 Series is a versatile line, engineered for numerous applications and industries, including accumulation, small-part transfers, inclines and declines, automated and manual assembly, packaging and industrial.
Customers can also design their 2200 Series Conveyors using D-Tools, Dorner’s online conveyor configurator. D-Tools is intended to help users select, design, configure and view conveyors in an intuitive 2D and 3D CAD platform. Dorner’s 2200 Series Conveyors will be available in D-Tools in German, Spanish and English languages; currencies will be Euros, U.S. dollars and Malaysian ringgit.
The conveyor line recently underwent a redesign to make the product stronger, faster and more flexible. It features a robust, single-piece frame design that reduces the overall number of needed stands. The frame comes with a Universal T-Slot that is compatible with industry-standard hardware to make guiding and attaching accessories fast and easy.
Additionally, a 16 mm nose bar transfer option with V-Guided belt tracking safely transfers parts at speeds up to 61 meters per minute for increased productivity. New tool-less guiding is fully adjustable, providing customers with added flexibility to further customize their conveyors to best fit their needs.
Features and benefits of the 2200 Series conveyor include:
In 2016, Dorner expanded its presence in Germany through the acquisition of Geppert-Band GmbH, a belt conveyor manufacturer based in Jülich. Earlier this year Geppert-Band GmbH was consolidated into the Dorner brand. All Dorner products, as well as former Geppert-Band GmbH belts, conveyors and equipment, will be supported through the Jülich, Germany facility.
