Drones and Smart Construction

Sometimes the perfect solution to time-honoured problems is hovering under our very noses. In the case of drones, this philosophy can be entirely literal. UAV technology is on the cutting edge of the consumer market - however, UAVs have greater potential locked within their status as a casual hobby. Commercial drones are growing in popularity, and their scope for allowing us an unbound perspective on the environments we cherish is widely recognised. Their potential as tools of the construction industry is only now coming to light as the full picture of this technologys influence has built up, piece by piece, under the dawn of the robotic age.

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

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.
