How to Choose Your Next Conveyor

With a wide variety of conveyor systems available, selecting the right one for your company can get complicated. Each belt and configuration has their own specific purpose—choosing the right belt for your product maximizes throughput, downtime, and safety.

Instead of trying to compare a multitude of options all at once, or spending hours researching what will work best, try using a guaranteed, simple 5 step model to guide your decision-making and expedite the process.

The most crucial aspect of choosing a conveyor is understanding what your options are. Knowing what you want and need can take you far, but having a strong knowledge of what you can choose from makes all the difference.

With Dorner, you can get exactly what you need by exploring each type of conveyor available, including:

  • Product types for conveyors
  • Belt types
  • Size and weight of the product
  • Material of the product
  • Direction of the conveyor–incline or decline
  • Speed needed to move the product
  • If the product’s orientation will change throughout the conveying process

Narrowing down these options is what establishes your conveyor as the perfect solution for your business. Understanding all of the above will help you better understand your product, the environment it needs, and therefore the proper conveyor system to transport it.
