Functionality at Its Best! Build Conveyors in Real Time with Dorner’s New 3D Preview

Customers can now receive real-time updates as they design and modify conveyor systems when using 3D Preview in DTools, Dorner’s online conveyor configurator.

HARTLAND, Wis., (May 16, 2018) — Customers can now receive real-time updates as they design and modify conveyor systems when using 3D Preview in DTools, Dorner's online conveyor configurator.

3D Preview, a fully interactive, live experience for customers that gives them more information than ever before, is now available for Dorner's 2200 Series Precision Move Pallet System. When building their conveyors in DTools, a 3D CAD model is simultaneously developed to match their designs. As the conveyor is modified, the configuration updates to correspond with those changes - giving customers live updates and rotatable 3D views of their conveyor systems prior to submitting them for quotation.
The 2200 Series Precision Move Pallet System conveyor is designed to increase efficiency and reduce downtime in various assembly automation processes. The platform can carry pallet loads up to 70 pounds around 90° or 180° corners, and pallets can be accumulated in a corner; an advantage not typically seen in most corner systems. It also features a tight transfer 180° corner that creates a loop with only 135mm between main run conveyors. This cost-effective option uses the Dorner Pin Tracking system, which eliminates the need for other transfer devices while maintaining pallet orientation through the loop.
3D Preview will be available on Dorner's other conveyor product lines in the coming months. For more information on DTools' 3D Preview, visit: https://tools.dornerconveyors.com. For information on Dorner's full line of sanitary and industrial conveyors, visit www.dornerconveyors.com.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
