Dorner 2200 Series Conveyors is now a certified UR+ Solution that simplify robot and conveyor integration for a wide variety of automated applications. Easy programming, fast set-up, and flexible deployment make the Dorner 2200 Series ideal for systems that need an infeed and discharge to a Universal Robot.
Dorner worked with Universal Robots to develop software that allows users to control 2200 Series conveyors using the Universal Robot controller. After customers purchase their UR robot and 2200 Series conveyor, they simply download the UR plug-in, which makes the integration of Dorner conveyors easier to setup, configure and control. The URCap can be found on the Dorner website www.dornerconveyors.com/dorner-ursolutions.
Once the program is installed, the conveyors can be added to the control program, and the user is able to program the inputs and outputs needed for starting, stopping, speed reference, and status information. The Dorner URCap has been designed for both CB series and e-Series controllers. Programming for the variable speed drive should be done using the Frequency Inverter Operating Instructions manual. Robot programming manual will be supplied with robot or can be found at the Universal Robots site www.universal-robots.com.
Ideally suited for Assembly and Packaging applications, the 2200 Series low profile, high performance fabric and modular belt conveyors feature a high-speed nose bar transfer option, a durable single piece frame design, universal T-slots, and a wide range of belting and guiding options.
The UR+ Solution certified 2200 Series conveyors are compatible with the following Universal Robot products:
· UR3 Robot: Payload 3kg
