Even the smallest of parts need their time in the spotlight. That’s why Dorner Mfg. Corp.’s new miniature 1100 Series conveyor platform now comes with an internal lighting system within the frame that shines light through the conveyor’s translucent belt.
The 1100 Series 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 1100 Series comes with several engineering designs for optimal performance in small part handling. The belt conveyor has a 5/8-inch 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.
The pinch drive offers worry-free conveyance utilizing three different belt tracking methods—cam, frame and pinch drive. Simply position the conveyor in the machine and let it run. If belt change is required, the unique drive package separates in two halves with just four fasteners, allowing for faster belt changes. Lastly, the 1100 Series ships completely assembled and ready to run.
