Dorner Helix Conveyors Allow More Layout Flexibility

Can be equipped with a tight turning radius option

Dorner Flex Move Helix Conveyor

Dorner FlexMove helix conveyors come with a new tight turning radius option that allows for compact turns with a diameter of spiral measuring 39.4 in. at centerline. The advantage of this tight turning radius option is even greater flexibility in layout for applications, such as accumulation, buffering, cooling product, and more. The small footprint also solves tight production line space problems.

The tight turning radius option is available on D-Tools, Dorner’s online conveyor configurator. D-Tools allows users to download 2D and 3D CAD models of the conveyor to construct simple or complex FlexMove helix conveyor packages, as well as individual components, such as gearmotors and mounting packages, support stands, and accessories.

FlexMove helix conveyors feature a reinforced frame structure for added strength and durability. They can be set at incline angles of up to 7 deg with a flat top chain and up to 10 deg with a friction top chain. The conveyors offer a variety of options and accessories, including two end-transfer options: a roller transfer plate or a powered transfer plate for smooth transfer of parts as small as 3 in. in diameter. They can accommodate loads up to 300 lb and speeds up to 171 ft/min.

All helix conveyors are custom built to order and delivered in about 30 days.
