Dorner has consolidated two existing product lines and unified them into a single platform, which is now called FlexMove.
While the FlexMove name isn’t new to Dorner, it now incorporates the features and strengths of the former SmartFlex conveyor line. The FlexMove flexible chain conveyor brings the best engineering and performance standards in flexible conveying automation from both lines, while also simplifying the product category into one universal platform. FlexMove makes specifying and ordering a much easier experience for distributors and customers around the world as the conveyor is fully supported from Dorner’s four global manufacturing facilities (U.S., Germany, Malaysia and Mexico).
FlexMove conveyors are available in three purchasing options based on the customer’s application and situation. With FlexMove Components, customers can order all the necessary parts and components to build their FlexMove conveyor onsite. FlexMove Solutions builds the conveyor at Dorner, tests it, then disassembles into sections and ships to the customer for installation. Finally, the FlexMove Assembled Onsite option features the Dorner installation team assembling the conveyor onsite at the customer’s location.
