Dorner’s new 2200 Series SmartFlex conveyor system does many things very well—and product transfers is one of them.
The 2200 Series SmartFlex flexible chain conveyor platform excels at small-part handling, thanks to its power transfer features that smoothly transfer parts as small as 3 inches in diameter on and off the conveyor for improved performance.
The power transfer can be integrated into the conveyor in drive tail or idler end designs. The direction in which product is moving on the conveyor dictates which power transfer to use. For example, the drive tail is used when product is flowing off the conveyor, and the idler end is used when product is flowing onto the conveyor. Both options are slave-driven from the conveyor’s motor.
The 2200 Series SmartFlex is a high-performance, flexible, modular chain conveyor that can be configured to wrap-around machinery and equipment in the food and packaging industry. Plus, it navigates very tight corners with wheel and plain bend options and offers multiple product transfer options for end and side transfers. It produces speeds up to 250 feet per minute with a load capacity up to 600 pounds. Multiple chain types include low friction, friction insert, conductive, cleated, roller top and magnet top.
