Dorner Launches Next Generation 2200 Series Precision Move Conveyors

When applications call for precise movement of product, then Dorner's newly redesigned 2200 Series Precision Move Conveyor is the answer.

HARTLAND, Wis., (March 6th, 2017) - When applications call for precise movement of product, then Dorner's newly redesigned 2200 Series Precision Move Conveyor is the answer.


Dorner's new 2200 Series Precision Move Conveyor is engineered for accurate movement of product at specific times, distances and intervals that are critical for components in the manufacturing and packaging processes of
small- to medium-sized parts. Precision Move gives greater product control and accuracy to automated applications including machine integration, robotic pick-n-place, precision indexing, accurate part positioning, timed conveying, vision inspection and part handling. The timing belt and servo motor combination adds a level of precision capability to the proven 2200 Series platform.

New features of the conveyor include reverse V-Guide belt tracking along the entire length of the conveyor to provide seamless belt performance without the need for side guides; expanded conveyor sizes - a small, one-inch wide conveyor option with tip-up tail for easy belt removal; and additional servo motor support with selectable motor manufacture and model numbers, as well as additional gear ratios for enhanced performance.

The 2200 Series Precision Move Conveyor is the fourth and final platform introduced as part of Dorner's newly redesigned 2200 Series family of conveyors. In April, 2016, Dorner re-launched the original 2200 Series to include new features such as a redesigned frame, additional belting and expanded guiding to make the platform stronger, faster and more flexible.
The 2200 Series LPZ, which comes with one or two pivot points, launched in June as a new offering in the newly redesigned series. In September, the third conveyor, the 2200 Modular Belt, debuted with additional belt options,
a sleek open frame design and a universal T-slot.

Features and benefits of the new 2200 Series Precision Move conveyor
include:
. Loads up to 200 pounds
. 12 tooth T10 profile
. Positive drive, no slip belting
. Conveyor lengths: 1.5' to 30'
. Conveyor widths between 1" and 24"
. Belt speeds up to 370 feet per minute
. Conveyor only repeatability +/-.02"
. Servo package repeatability +/-.04"

All of Dorner's 2200 Series conveyors can be configured in Dorner's Online Configurator, DTools. Users can engineer a complete conveyor and download a complete 3D CAD assembly model for instant validation of fit.

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.
