Intelligrated launches high-efficiency motor driven roller transfer conveyor
Innovative design ensures product handling flexibility for e-commerce and omnichannel fulfillment operations
(CINCINNATI: March 11, 2014)-Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com), a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, announces the release of its new motor driven roller (MDR) transfer conveyor. The section facilitates a 90-degree change in direction of cases, polybags and totes to satisfy the product handling demands of e-commerce and omnichannel fulfillment operations.
The MDR transfer features drive rollers with integral 24 volt DC motors for individually powered zones and multiple transfer belts with adjustable band spacing to maximize product control and operational flexibility needs. The innovative design maintains a constant product height increasing power efficiency, item control and throughput rates.
Ideal for close operator interaction, the bi-directional MDR transfer offers quiet operation and run-on-demand features that use up to 50 percent less energy than traditional conveyor. Improved controls and efficient designs enable quick startup, simple belt replacement and easy maintenance for maximum uptime.
"An increasing number of distribution operations face the challenge of handling a variety of product types and this MDR transfer helps operators manage the challenges of omnichannel fulfillment," said Jim Gable, product manager, motorized roller conveyors. "Intelligrated continues to develop material handling equipment with the latest technology to respond to industry demands, backed by the dependability customers expect."

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors
The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
