Let Dorner’s new Product Selector in DTools Select the Right Belt Conveyor System for Your Application

1100-Series-Conveyors-EmailNeed help selecting the best conveyor system for your application? Dorner’s new Product Selector within its DTools program is just the answer.

The new Product Selector is available on all of Dorner Tools (DTools) conveyor productivity applications, including its 2D and 3D CAD libraries, DConfig and Dpricer. This new feature is designed to help you select the best conveyor system for your application, and can be accessed by visiting

The Product Selector works by having you check off features and benefits that are important to your conveyor system relative to the application you’re specifying for. For example, you check mark about conveyor preferences on belts, timing, speed, width, corners, weight loads and environmental conditions. The list of conveyor options narrows as you move through the list. When the Product Selector helps identify the right conveyor system for your application, you can go directly into DConfig to add dimensions and download a CAD drawing or request a quote.

If the Product Selector identifies a conveyor system that’s not part of Dorner’s standard offering, it refers you to fill out an Engineered Solution request.
