Dorner Latin America Now Manufacturing Industrial Belt Conveyors and Flexible Chain Conveyors from New Facility in Mexico
The new facility, staffed with experienced employees, is manufacturing Dorner’s popular selling 2200 Series low profile belt conveyor, which is ideal for assembly, light manufacturing and other industrial applications.
HARTLAND, Wis., (March 11, 2019) — Dorner's new manufacturing facility in Guadalajara, Mexico, (Dorner Latin America), enables the company to build and deliver belt and flexible chain conveyor systems more quickly and efficiently for customers throughout Latin America.
The new facility, staffed with experienced employees, is manufacturing Dorner's popular selling 2200 Series low profile belt conveyor, which is ideal for assembly, light manufacturing and other industrial applications. Additionally, the facility is also manufacturing FlexMove flexible chain conveyors, which are designed for pharmaceutical, paper converting, and consumer goods packaging applications. All Dorner conveyors and equipment will be supported through the Guadalajara customer service and engineering teams.
"We have seen tremendous growth in Mexico and Latin America. We're excited to open a new manufacturing facility and continue expanding our team in Guadalajara so we can provide better and faster support for our customers," said Dan Nasato, Vice President - International, Dorner.
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.
