Product of the day: Inspection conveyor
Posted by Jack Mans, Plant Operations Editor -- Packaging Digest, 5/29/2013 8:16:20 AM
Dorner Mfg. Corp.'s new miniature 1100 Series conveyor platform now comes with an internal lighting system within the frame that brightly shines light through the conveyor's translucent belt. The backlit conveyor with an LED light is ideal for inspection-type applications as it provides a contrast between the product and conveyor belt for both visual inspection and vision system interface. The 1100 Series Backlit is flexible to meet diverse applications; parts can be stopped directly over the lighted section or continue through uninterrupted. Unique design allows access to LED panel without removal of the belt for ease of use. The conveyor is designed for lightweight or very small product movement and is Clean Room Class 100 Certified, making it ideal for medical, pharmaceutical, life sciences and industrial applications.
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.
