The product redesign includes a number of improvements. For starters, its ladder-style, open frame design replaces traditional perforated bedplates that allows better airflow through the frame for cooling and water and chemical drainage applications. Its sleek, narrow profile means it can be positioned under machinery and in other tight spaces where other conveyors wouldn’t fit. Another enhancement to the frame is a Universal T-slot that is compatible with industry standard hardware and makes attaching accessories and guiding fast and simple.
The optional high-speed nose bar transfer option allows for safe and efficient transfers of small parts at speeds up to 175 ft./min. The conveyor also comes with two styles of plastic chain belting: micro pitch, general purpose modular belt, or a metalworking modular belt (1 in. or 2 in. cleats are available on the metalworking modular belt). End drive models are compatible with Dorner’s new Universal Drive – a universal motor and mounting package that covers all speeds, loads and mounting positions with a single part number.
