Dorner, a 16-year member of PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, landed the honor of co-hosting the event along with KHS USA, a filling and packaging company located in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
PMMI, is a trade association comprised of more than 700 packaging-related member companies throughout North America.

Dorner conveyors are used as both a component in packaging machinery, as well as food processing to end of line conveying solutions.

"Over the last 20 years, our business has transitioned from a company that primarily served traditional manufacturing, specifically metalworking, to a business that serves primary and secondary packaging and food processing."
said Matt Jones, Vice President - Sales & Marketing, and PMMI Industry Relations Committee Member. "Our growth in both the packaging and food processing markets mirrors the growth of PMMI over the last 20 years."

Hosting the Annual Meeting is the culmination of over 16 years of membership in the association. Rich Ryan, Dorner's former President and CEO as well as a PMMI board member was committed to hosting the Annual Meeting. Prior to his passing, Ryan set the wheels in motion to host this event and the leadership team at Dorner has worked hard to achieve this goal. The success and industry commitment made by Rich, the Dorner family, Dorner business leaders and over 200 team members will be on display for PMMI professionals
to see on Tuesday, Sept. 20.

Hosting PMMI's Annual Meeting is just one of many milestones being celebrated by Dorner in 2016. These include launching a redesign of its best-selling 2200 Series conveyor platform; expanding its facilities with the opening of a new 25,000 square-foot expansion, and most notably, celebrating its 50th anniversary in business.

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.
