Dorner Showcases New 3200 Series with ARB™ Technology and AquaPruf VBT Conveyors at PACK EXPO East 2017, Feb. 27 – March 1 in

One of Dorner’s newest conveyors, the 3200 Series conveyor with Intralox Activated Roller Belt™ (ARB) Technology, is perfect for moving boxes and packages in merging, diverting and aligning applications.

HARTLAND, Wis., (February 25, 2017) —Dorner is exhibiting its new 3200 Series with ARB Technology conveyor, as well as its sanitary AquaPruf VBT platform, in booth No. 628 at PACK EXPO East 2017, Feb. 27 - March 1, in the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia. Dorner is a manufacturer of packaged and custom conveyor solutions, solving industrial, packaging and sanitary conveyor automation needs for a variety of industries.


One of Dorner's newest conveyors, the 3200 Series conveyor with Intralox Activated Roller Belt™ (ARB) Technology, is perfect for moving boxes and packages in merging, diverting and aligning applications. ARB Technology uses low and high friction angled rollers within the belt to help smoothly guide and align items of all sizes. This conveyor technology minimizes floor space, increases system reliability, eliminates costly system controls, provides a safer work environment, and can handle products as small as 6" x 6".

For specific applications, ARB Technology works well for:
• 90° transfers maintaining product orientation
• Aligners / edge justification
• Case turners
• Bump turns
• Touchless low friction mergers
• Rejects

PACK EXPO East attendees can also see the AquaPruf (VBT) Vertical Belt Technology Conveyor, which moves bulk products in straight-up 90° sanitary applications and features a proprietary staggered sidewall belt that's easy to clean and improves product release.

The conveyor comes with an open frame design for quick cleaning, more effective product changeover, and overall less maintenance versus a traditional bucket elevator. The AquaPruf VBT is perfect for elevating bulk products such as vegetables, fruits/grains/nuts, popcorn, pet food, pharmaceuticals and small packages. Applications include elevation for walk-thru, hopper feeding, weigh scale feeding, general bulk handling and sanitary environments.

To see how these conveyor platforms can help your material handling applications, make plans to visit Dorner in booth 628 at PACK EXPO East 2017.

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.
