Additionally, pallets can be accumulated in the corner, an advantage not typically seen in most corner systems. Pallet widths have also been expanded to 640 x 640 mm to handle heavier loads.
The new tight transfer 180° corner creates a loop with only 135mm between main run conveyors. This cost-effective option uses the Dorner Pin Tracking system, that eliminates the need for other transfer devices while maintaining pallet orientation through the loop.
The new low-profile lift and locate is ideal for operator stations, as the feature lifts the pallet off the conveyor and locates it within +/- 0.015”. The compact and safe device protrudes beyond the main conveyor only 1”, saving valuable space for operators or other equipment.
A versatile addition to the product line is the new Dorner Precision Move elevator, which uses dual-sided timing belt conveyor technology to effectively raise and lower pallets for over/under pallet applications. Dual sided support provides an improved method of transport for wider pallet applications. Elevators are capable of transport heights from 18” to 120” top of belt.
