Dorner Introduces Next Generation 2200 Series Modular Belt Conveyors

Dorner's newly redesigned 2200 Series Modular Belt Conveyor features additional belt options, a sleek open frame design, a universal T-slot and is ideal for applications within the metalworking, packaging, assembling and general manufacturing industries.

HARTLAND, Wis., (September 12, 2016) -Dorner's newly redesigned 2200 Series Modular Belt Conveyor features additional belt options, a sleek open frame design, a universal T-slot and is ideal for applications within the metalworking, packaging, assembling and general manufacturing industries.


The product redesign includes a number of improvements. For starters, its ladder-style, open frame design replaces traditional perforated bedplates that allows better airflow through the frame for cooling and water, and chemical drainage applications. Its sleek, narrow profile means it can be positioned under machinery and in other tight spaces where other conveyors wouldn't fit. Another enhancement to the frame is a Universal T-slot that is compatible with industry standard hardware and makes attaching accessories and guiding fast and simple.

The optional high speed nose bar transfer option allows for safe and efficient transfers of small parts at speeds up to 175 feet per minute. The conveyor also comes with two styles of plastic chain belting: micro pitch, general purpose modular belt, or a metalworking modular belt (1" or 2"
cleats are available on the metalworking modular belt). End drive models are compatible with Dorner's new Universal Drive - a universal motor and mounting package that covers all speeds, loads and mounting positions with a single part number.

The 2200 Series Modular Belt is the third of four new platforms being introduced this year as part of Dorner's newly redesigned 2200 Series platform. In April, Dorner re-launched the original 2200 Series to include new features such as a redesigned frame, additional belting and expanded guiding to make the platform stronger, faster and more flexible for handling small to medium size part applications. The 2200 Series LPZ, which comes with one or two pivot points, launched in June as the second conveyor in the newly redesigned series. The fourth and final conveyor in the series is expected to debut later this year.

Features and benefits of the new 2200 Series Modular Belt conveyor include:
. Three available drive options: End Drive, Center Drive, or Dorner's
iDrive, consolidated motor and control offering
. Widths between 3" and 24"; lengths between 18" to 30'

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
