Dorner has introduced the SmartFlex Helix Conveyor, which features a proprietary flexible chain. The SmartFlex Helix can operate in a footprint as small as a 10’ x 10’, and is suitable for product handling applications where product needs to travel up or down in a confined space.
The conveyor’s compact design allows for five feet of elevation change in 10 feet (incline angle of up to 12°), giving users the freedom and flexibility to design a material handling system with multiple layouts using a single conveyor.
The SmartFlex Helix comes in three belt widths: 85 mm, 180 mm, and 260 mm. Additionally, the SmartFlex Helix does not require any lubrication, providing a cleaner environment and reduced risk of contamination.
