Dorner’s (dornerconveyor.com) innovative approach to developing material handling solutions through its engineered solutions group will be one of many things on display at PACK EXPO 2016, Nov. 6-9 in Chicago.
The new display contains six conveyors, including two SmartFlex® conveyors outfitted with FlexMove® Technology, that twist to help flip product 90°. Other conveyors include a 2200 Series nose-over squeeze, pacing conveyor featuring a FlexMove common mount; a 3200 Series bottomless squeezing conveyor; and two 3200 Series conveyors with Activated Roller Belt™ (ARB™) Technology, which is a patent-protected technology of Intralox. Seeing these six conveyors synced together provides a good example of the kinds of solutions Dorner’s engineered solutions group can develop, as well as a very dynamic visual at the expo.
Many other conveyors will be in action, including the newly redesigned 2200 LPZ low profile belt conveyor, which comes with one or two pivot points and features an extremely low profile to fit under machinery or other tight spots. The advantage of the 2200 LPZ is that its sleek, narrow profile enables it to be positioned under machinery where other conveyors wouldn’t fit, making it ideal for part removal and product handling in packaging, automation, medical, pharmaceutical and other general manufacturing applications. The pivot points on the conveyor provide added flexibility as it can be configured in either Z-frame, horizontal-to-incline and nose-over positions.
The AquaPruf Vertical Belt Conveyor moves bulk products in straight-up 90° sanitary applications and features a proprietary staggered sidewall belt that’s easy to clean and improves product release. Additionally, the 7600 Ultimate Series is engineered for fast and effective sanitation in the most demanding environments, and represents Dorner’s highest sanitary standards in a conveyor.
Another dynamic display features the AquaGard 7100 Series, a sanitary flexible chain conveyor, and the SmartPace Dynamic Pacing Conveyor that takes randomly spaced products and paces them into even spacing without the use of diverts or plows.
Dorner’s SmartFlex Spiral, SmartFlex Alpine, 3200 High Performance Modular Belt Conveyor, as well as 1100 Series Conveyors will also be on display. To see how these conveyor platforms can help your material handling applications, make plans to visit Dorner in Booth #N-5945 at PACK EXPO 2016.
