, NEW 1100 Series: Smallest Belt Conveyor Available

Move Fast. Move Smart. Move Small.

Have to move a small or lightweight product? Have part transfer issues? Have an extremely tight space that requires a conveyor? Dorner Mfg. Corp. has the answer.

Dorner’s new 1100 Series conveyor platform has a compact design featuring a 3/4″ frame height, making it the sma low profile conveyor available in North America. This low profile enables the conveyor to fit into the tightest of spaces, freeing up valuable machine or worker space. The 1100 Series is designed for lightweight or very small product movement and is Clean Room Class 100 verified*, making it ideal for medical, pharmaceutical and life sciences applications.

1100 Series Conveyor with 5/8" roller transfer tail

The 1100 Series comes with several engineering designs for optimal performance in small part handling. The belt conveyor has a 5/8″ roller transfer tail for accurate and efficient small part end transfers; the conveyor belt is nearly flush with the frame for ease of side transfers, and patent-pending pinch drive allows for 15-pound load without the need for high belt tension.

The pinch drive offers worry-free conveyance utilizing three different belt tracking methods: cam, frame and pinch drive. Simply position the conveyor in the machine and let it run. If belt change is required, the unique drive package separates in two halves with just four fasteners, allowing for faster belt changes. Lastly, the 1100 Series ships completely assembled and ready to run.

*To verify clean room requirements, an unloaded base conveyor was tested and did not generate particulate that would be beyond the specified standards.  However, the verification does not provide assurance that any or all applications will meet this requirement.  Application testing is recommended to ensure clean room standards are being met.  Dorner takes no responsibility in the clean room performance of the final conveyor or application.
