Dorner’s Material Handling Conveyors are designed to handle all stages of the manufacturing process, from production and assembly through inspection and packing.
With an array of models available, you’ll find a conveyor belt material handling solution for small components and large boxes, for straight or curved paths, and for on the ground or overhead. In addition to our standard conveyor offerings, Dorner offers custom material handling conveyor solutions designed for your unique space and business needs.
Conveyors improve efficiency, increase output, reduce costs and, in general, keep things running smoothly.
Dorner Material Handling Conveyors Are Built for Peak Efficiency and Productivity
As material handling conveyors transport products through a facility or production process, they reduce footprint by maximizing space, increase uptime, improve efficiency, enhance accuracy, lower production and labor costs as well as boost worker safety.
With an automated material handling solution from Dorner’s complete line of industrial belted, modular belt and flexible chain conveyors in place, your business can speed up cumbersome processes or even reallocate your employees from tedious tasks to higher-priority ones. With the increased accuracy of automation, you’ll improve cost efficiency and reduce waste.
These gains are the result of increased uptime and improved product movement, flow and quality. Another way conveyors can benefit your bottom line, especially those designed for tight spaces such as FlexMove, is that you can still find ways to increase your production capacity even with limited space.
Workplace safety is also improved in a few ways. Reducing or eliminating the need for lift trucks, for example, lessens the chance for collisions or accidents on the floor. Also, leaving the heavy lifting for conveyors literally takes a load off your operators, preventing injuries related to lifting or pushing.

To cite an example, a pharmaceutical company wanted to increase its efficiency. At the time, pharmacy technicians manually carried totes between their filling stations and the verification and packing stations. This was not the best use of these employees’ time. After consulting with Dorner, the result was a three-level tote handling system that allowed prescriptions to move through the facility automatically, with operators positioned at strategic locations.
Our custom material handling conveyor offerings come with the same installation, training and maintenance services as our standard lines.
What Are Material Handling Conveyors?
Conveyor belt material handling can be used for a variety of applications, from part handling and packaging to assembly automation and accumulation. Although typical loads include boxes, totes and packages, sanitary conveyors also handle food processing and packaging edible products, even fresh fruit and raw meat.
How Material Handling Conveyors Work
FlexMove conveyors are a customizable solution designed for tight spaces and also offer the flexibility to grow along with your needs.
