Dorner is exhibiting its deep lineup of automation-focused conveyor platforms, including the Edge Roller Technology ERT®250 and ERT®150 models, in booth 4300 at Automate 2022, June 6-9, in Detroit.
As implied by their name, the ERT250 and ERT150 conveyors use rollers to move pallets smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyors’ open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing damage or jamming. The ERT series is ideal for applications calling for pallet or tray handling; no- and low-back pressure accumulation; light, medium, or heavy load assembly automation; and Cleanroom applications such as medical product or device manufacturing, assembly, packaging, and others.
In addition to the ERT series, Automate attendees will experience Dorner’s 2200 Precision Move Pallet System, a conveyor designed to provide accurate positioning and routing of parts for assembly, robotic, and inspection applications. The 2200 Series Precision Move Pallet System comes with many benefits for the assembly automation industry, including a heavy-load corner design to carry and accumulate loads up to 75 pounds around 90° or 180° corners and effectively provide loop capacity for larger, heavier pallets. Pallet widths have also been expanded to 640 mm by 640 mm to handle heavy loads.
For robotic integration, Dorner and its 2200 Series conveyor is a certified Universal Robot solution provider. This partnership helps customers by simplifying robotic and conveyor integration for a wide variety of automated applications.
Finally, Dorner is showcasing its FlexMove Pallet System, a versatile conveyor engineered for product routing, control, and inspection in small- to medium-size assembly automation applications. Sold as completed assemblies or as kits, FlexMove components offer users layout flexibility and the ability to implement conveyor system design changes easily. Components include merge and divert modules, lift and locate stations, cushioned pallet stops, and a unique pin tracking system to guide pallets through 90° turns – all of which attach directly to the conveyor frame, without the need for modifications.
