Align Random Product with a Chicane Conveyor
In certain production processes, product is random, misaligned or spread out. This can occur either on purpose or as a result of the process. The challenge is how to take randomly spread product and create neat rows with spacing.

One solution is a chicane conveyor system.

Adjustable Angle LPZ Reduces Product Damage

The 3200 Series LPZ conveyor is an ideal solution for taking product out of a machine at low elevations and transporting it to a more ergonomic height for operators.
Recently, Dorner worked with a customer who was packaging delicate product using a vertical bagger. However, the packaging varied from 6” tall to 12” tall. The challenge was that a fixed height differential used to accommodate larger packages would pose issues with product damage for the smaller packages.
Dorner Conveyor Platforms Receive Cleanroom Certification
Dorner’s 3200 Series Modular and Flat Belt conveyors, 2200 Series Precision Move and the SmartFlex conveyor platforms have received the Ultraclean Products Approval Laboratory certification for use in ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 5, and Federal Standard 209 Class 100 rated cleanrooms.

This means the four Dorner conveyors will not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms conforming to those standards.
