Butt splices aren’t the easiest things in the world to handle. The small, circular component designed to join two ends, or butts, of two objects together without overlapping, have been known to slip through fingers when inserting a wire connector while trying to crimp it.
The process of manufacturing butt splices can be challenging as well. That’s why Sumitomo turned to Smart Engineering Systems, Becker Engineering, Clayton Controls and Dorner Mfg., to streamline and modernize the manufacturing process and achieve greater accuracy in the positioning of splices during production from +/-.02” to +/-.002”.

New 28-page engineering manual serves as a valuable how-to resource for motors and controls
HARTLAND, Wis., (March 16, 2015) —A conveyor system is only as good as the motor and controls that power it – which is why Dorner has revamped its Motors and Controls offering to support a variety of technologies to cover all applications.
Many industrial and sanitary conveyors require fixed speed, variable speed or indexing motor and controls product. The advantage Dorner brings to the industry is a complete solution (conveyor, motor and control) that’s ready to run right at the side of the conveyor or from a higher control source with limited set-up time. Dorner creates simple automation using a wide variety of options tailored specifically to the customer’s application, and those solutions come with a clean interface. [Read More...]

Everyday, thousands of pounds of mushrooms are picked and packaged from Monterey Mushroom’s Loudon, Tennessee, facility, and playing a critical role in that process is a new sanitary conveyor system from Dorner Mfg. With the help of Dorner, Monterey Mushrooms is able to ship product daily throughout the southeastern part of the United States. [Read More...]
