Dorner’s new 2700 Medium Duty Conveyor offers extra load capacity
For applications that need an 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.
The 2700 can be used for palletizers, multi-lane processing, case and tray handling and end-of-line packaging.
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 pounds, and the 3200 conveyor can support up to 400 pounds, the 2700 Medium Duty can safely convey up to 150 pounds.
The new conveyor has extended widths between 26” and 36”, available in 2” 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. Also, the conveyor can be wider than it is long, enabling 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; precise rack and pinion belt tensioning; larger, sealed for life bearings; 16 mm (5/8”) high speed nose bar transfer tail; and it’s engineered for applications involving multi-lane and medium part handling; transfers; accumulation, automated and manual assembly.
