For companies across a broad range of industries, conveyor systems are a very effective way to maximize productivity as well as save a great deal of time and money. That being said, many companies today need greater flexibility in their equipment to meet changing applications and consumer demands but are also limited by the amount of available space in their facility. Below are four reasons why Dorner’s FlexMove conveyors are the perfect solution for overcoming these challenges and optimizing material handling processes.
