G-Flex Flexible Parts Feeding Solution
out of necessity, designed from experience
The G-Flex 1500 bowl feeder eliminator offers Ultimate Flexibility!
Buy it once, redeploy it to new parts if your process changes with virtually no added investment.  One G-Flex unit can handle numerous applications providing unrestrained potential. 
This flexible parts feeding system handles multiple parts and simultaneously provides them to vision guided robots.  G-Flex is a programmable platform that shakes and tilts automatically, continually feeding almost any shaped item to vision guided robots.
Different components, different geometries, but the same G-Flex unit!

DataMan 50See what you are missing... Check out DataMan 50L image-based 
DataMan´┐Ż image-based readers deliver the highest read rates of any barcode reader or single-line laser scanner. But if there is a no read, you can see why! With laser scanners, how do you know why a no read occurs?
Performance feedback allows you to:
  • Analyze rejects
  • Improve processes
  • Ensure print quality
  • Cut costs by reducing scrap

all at a comparable price to traditional laser scanners! 



See the DataMan 50L in person or learn more by getting the datasheet.


The Leader in Unit Handling Conveyors
Flexible packaging product handling

Dorner's industry leading product handling conveyor platforms are ideal for flexible packaging solutions. The conveyors can be engineered or configured to aid in the creation and efficiency of packaging lines manufacturing products in flexible packages. These packages are made of soft or flexible material in the form of a bag or pouch creating unique handling opportunities. Dorner Conveyor
Vertical Movement:  Application involves the rapid incline of pouches from drop height of filling machines to working height or ceiling height.
Bottom-Less Pouch Handling:  Application involves the stable conveyance of pouches for inspection, printing, labeling or edge sealing.
Pouch Orientation or Turning: Application involves non-contact orientation of pouches, orientating them  to accommodate various processes.*Settling/Flattening:  Servo driven conveyor pulses back and forth dispersing or leveling the pouch contents for carton or box loading.
