Four Dorner Industrial Conveyor Platforms Receive Cleanroom Certification

Cleanrooms and other controlled environments provide management of airborne particulate contamination to appropriate levels for accomplishing contamination-sensitive activities.

HARTLAND, Wis., (June 24, 2016) - Dorner's 3200 Series Modular and Flat Belt conveyors, the 2200 Series Precision Move and the SmartFlex conveyor platforms have received the Ultraclean Products Approval Laboratory certification for use in ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 5, and Federal Standard

209 Class 100 rated cleanrooms. This means the four Dorner conveyors will not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms conforming to those standards.

Cleanrooms and other controlled environments provide management of airborne particulate contamination to appropriate levels for accomplishing contamination-sensitive activities. Industries that regularly use cleanrooms in their manufacturing processes include aerospace, pharmaceuticals, medical
and healthcare.

These four conveyors are ideally suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring robust material handling, as well as flexibility, automation and accurate part movement over distance and time. The 3200 Series modular and flat belt conveyors are designed to handle medium to heavy sized parts, while the 2200 Series Precision Move conveyor offers the latest advancements in timing belting and drive technology, and is ideal for applications that call for extremely accurate movement of product at specific times, distances and intervals. Dorner's SmartFlex is a flexible table-top chain conveyor that's engineered for the food, medical, life sciences, industrial
automation and packaging industries.

The Ultraclean Products Approval Laboratory certification is a leading national test center for contamination control engineering. Some of the testing and certification services include a variety of cleanroom equipment such as benches, cabinets, fume hoods, material handling systems, and vertical and horizontal flow cleanrooms.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
