The 3200 series with Intralox ARB technology use innovative conveyance technology for merging, diverting, and aligning of product.

Benefits of 3200 Series ARB Conveyors

  • Flexibility to handle multiple product sizes without the need for changeover
  • Minimizes floor space consumption
  • Increased system reliability
  • Eliminates costly system controls reducing complexity
  • Encased moving parts provide safer work environments
  • Low-maintenance solution
  • Handles products as small as 6″ x 6″


  • 2″ pitch ARB chain
  • Built on Dorner 3200 Series platform
  • Widths: 8″ (203mm) to 60″ (1524mm) in 2″ (51mm) increments
  • Lengths: minimum 3ft (914mm)

  • Rejects

90° Transfers & Lane Merges

  • 90° passive on and 90° passive off transfers
  • No adjustment needed for different size products
  • Requires 6″-8″ gap upstream
  • 90° passive on requires some product momentum, 90° passive off does not
  • Using 90° passive on product can merge into a gap on mainline ARB
  • Uses Series 400 45° chain and passive rollers

Edge Justification & Bump Turns

  • No adjustment needed for different size products
  • Edge justification requires no product gap
  • Bump turn needs 6″8″ gap upstream
  • A fixed or pneumatically controlled protrusion from the side rail is added to help start the turning process
  • Uses Series 400 30° chain and activated rollers
