Dorner Launches Next Generation 2200 Series Precision Move Conveyors

When applications call for precise movement of product, then Dorner's newly redesigned 2200 Series Precision Move Conveyor is the answer.

HARTLAND, Wis., (March 6th, 2017) - When applications call for precise movement of product, then Dorner's newly redesigned 2200 Series Precision Move Conveyor is the answer.


Dorner's new 2200 Series Precision Move Conveyor is engineered for accurate movement of product at specific times, distances and intervals that are critical for components in the manufacturing and packaging processes of
small- to medium-sized parts. Precision Move gives greater product control and accuracy to automated applications including machine integration, robotic pick-n-place, precision indexing, accurate part positioning, timed conveying, vision inspection and part handling. The timing belt and servo motor combination adds a level of precision capability to the proven 2200 Series platform.

New features of the conveyor include reverse V-Guide belt tracking along the entire length of the conveyor to provide seamless belt performance without the need for side guides; expanded conveyor sizes - a small, one-inch wide conveyor option with tip-up tail for easy belt removal; and additional servo motor support with selectable motor manufacture and model numbers, as well as additional gear ratios for enhanced performance.

The 2200 Series Precision Move Conveyor is the fourth and final platform introduced as part of Dorner's newly redesigned 2200 Series family of conveyors. In April, 2016, 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.
The 2200 Series LPZ, which comes with one or two pivot points, launched in June as a new offering in the newly redesigned series. In September, the third conveyor, the 2200 Modular Belt, debuted with additional belt options,
a sleek open frame design and a universal T-slot.

Features and benefits of the new 2200 Series Precision Move conveyor
include:
. Loads up to 200 pounds
. 12 tooth T10 profile
. Positive drive, no slip belting
. Conveyor lengths: 1.5' to 30'
. Conveyor widths between 1" and 24"
. Belt speeds up to 370 feet per minute
. Conveyor only repeatability +/-.02"
. Servo package repeatability +/-.04"

All of Dorner's 2200 Series conveyors can be configured in Dorner's Online Configurator, DTools. Users can engineer a complete conveyor and download a complete 3D CAD assembly model for instant validation of fit.

ST Robotics - K11R robot controller now available for your own robot!

St Robotics is making the K11R robot controller available for any robot that uses stepping motors including the IGUS range. Providing you use low inductance motors the K11R will provide surprising power and speed from it's 55v DC supply and Gecko micro-stepping drives controlled by a fast DSP and micro-controller. The software is RoboForth II V17 embedded in the controller which together with the PC project supervisor gets your robot going within minutes. It is a text based conversational language that is so easy to use yet permits programs of great complexity when required. The kinematics are easily tailored to any size of robot and any number of axes from 3 to 6. The controller will also provide easy calibration to sensors and also reads back and compares encoders if you fit them. Speed, acceleration and rate of acceleration (3rd order) are all programmable as is emergency stop and many other features. Your positional data and programs may be saved on your PC and also in the controller's flash memory. The K11R will also control external devices such as pneumatic gripper, vacuum pickup, air cylinders and communicate with a PLC. Pricing starts at $2500. Contact ST at sales@strobotics.com
