Sanitary and Safety Attributes Help Dorner earn BISSC Certification on its Redesigned AquaGard 7350 V2 Sanitary Conveyor Platform

Launched in October 2018, the redesigned AquaGard 7350 V2 Series merges the best qualities in accessibility and safety to deliver a sanitary platform that’s perfectly engineered for the baking, snack food, pharmaceutical, pet food and packaging industries that require wipe-down and occasional wash-down cleanings of the conveyor.

HARTLAND, Wis., (May 16, 2019) — The high sanitary and safety attributes of Dorner's newly redesigned AquaGard 7350 V2 Series has earned it the coveted Baking Industry Sanitation Standards Committee (BISSC) certification for conveyors outlined in ANSI/ASB/Z50.2-2015. BISSC certification is recognized as the definitive sanitation standard for equipment used in the baking industry.

Launched in October 2018, the redesigned AquaGard 7350 V2 Series merges the best qualities in accessibility and safety to deliver a sanitary platform that's perfectly engineered for the baking, snack food, pharmaceutical, pet food and packaging industries that require wipe-down and occasional wash-down cleanings of the conveyor. The new conveyor comes in belt, modular belt and positive drive options, and can be configured in straights, curves and Z-frames.
Specific design features that helped the AquaGard 7350 V2 earn BISSC certification include:
• Bolt-together 304 stainless steel frames
• FDA-approved belting and plastic components
• Open design with minimal horizontal surfaces
• Ample access for cleaning and maintenance
• Suitable for both wipe-down and low-pressure washdown cleanings with non-caustic solutions
Additional sanitary and safety features on the modular belt curve conveyor include having no openings greater than the international standard of 4mm, which increases safety by eliminating pinch points for operators. Furthermore, the upper and lower chain edges are fully contained in the drive system to reduce catenary belt sag and conveyor noise.

BISSC is a not-for-profit corporation that, working with the American Society of Baking Z50 Committee, developed an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard for the design of bakery equipment. The standard provides guidance for a variety of manufacturing equipment regarding proper design for sanitation and food safety.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
