PACK EXPO 2016 – Booth Preview Part Four

, PACK EXPO 2016 – Booth Preview Part Four

PACK EXPO 2016 is only 9 days away! Dorner will be exhibiting in Booth #N-5945.

For our last Booth Preview, we’re showing you our brand new packaging loop.

See parts one, two and three.

New Packing Loop Six Conveyors

The new display contains six conveyors and demonstrates the many different ways to handle the relatively small product.

The loop includes two SmartFlexconveyors outfitted with FlexMove Technology, a 2200 Series nose-over squeeze, a 3200 Series bottomless squeezing conveyor; and two 3200 Series conveyors with Activated Roller Belt (ARB) Technology, which is a patent-protected technology of Intralox.

Two SmartFlexconveyors outfitted with FlexMove Technology

The ARB technology features and benefits include :

  • Flexibility to handle multiple product sizes without the need for changeover
  • Minimizes floor space consumption
  • Increased system reliability
  • Eliminates costly system controls, reducing complexity
  • Encased moving parts provide safer work environments

Possible ARB solutions include :

  • 90 degree transfers maintaining product orientation
  • Aligners/edge justification
  • Case turners
  • Bump turns
  • Touchless low friction merges
  • Rejects

SmartFlex Twist on SmartFlex conveyor

The SmartFlex Twist uses two SmartFlex Conveyors to turn a product 90°.  See a case handling application where we used a SmartFlex Twist here.

2200 Series nose-over squeeze with FlexMove common mount

The 2200 Series nose-over squeeze is a pacing conveyor featuring a FlexMove common mount. These conveyors run slower than the mainline SmartFlex and provide a gap between products.

3200 Series bottomless squeezing conveyor with bottomless design

The final portion of the loop features a 3200 Series bottomless squeezing conveyor. The bottomless conveyor design gives access to the underside of packages for processes such as taping, labeling and/or inspection without the need to turn the product.
