For applications that need a little extra boost in load capacity, the new 2700 Medium Duty Conveyor from Dorner has the strength to carry heavier products for a variety of industrial automation and packaging applications, including palletizers, multi-lane processing, case and tray handling, and end-of-line packaging.
With regards to Dorner’s industrial flat belt conveyor options, the new 2700 Medium Duty hits the sweet spot between Dorner’s popular low-profile 2200 and 3200 heavy-duty platforms. While the 2200 conveyor can carry up to 80 lb and the 3200 conveyor can support up to 400 lb, the 2700 Medium Duty is engineered to safely convey up to 150 lb. This expanding portfolio of industrial conveyors gives customers a full breadth of options to select the right platform for their specific application.
Another advantage the 2700 Medium Duty Conveyor brings is extended widths between 26 and 36 in., available in 2 in. increments. Wider conveyors are becoming sought-after options in warehouses and industrial facilities as their extra capacity complement a company’s automation upgrades. The growing popularity of autonomous mobile robots (AMR), robotic palletizing, and other technologies, all of which can handle heavier loads, pair nicely with the wider widths and increased carrying capacity of the 2700 Medium Duty. Furthermore, the conveyor can be wider than it is long, which enables an AMR to dock sideways, allowing for more efficient and faster loading and unloading. Features and benefits of the new 2700 Medium Duty Conveyors include:
- V-guided positive belt tracking for smooth, maintenance-free performance even under demanding side load applications
- Precise rack and pinion belt tensioning for fast and simple tensioning
- Larger, sealed-for-life bearings easily handle 2700 Medium Duty capacity, while reducing maintenance
- 5/8 in. (16 mm) high-speed nose bar transfer tail for precise transferring of small packages
- Engineered for applications involving multi-lane and medium part handling, transfers, accumulation, and automated and manual assembly
