Dorner’s move to begin building its top-selling 2200 Series low-profile belt conveyors this month in Germany enables customers throughout Europe to take delivery of their equipment faster than ever before.
Dorner (http://www.dornerconveyors.com) is an industry leader in the design, application, manufacturing and integration of precision industrial and sanitary conveyor systems.
Production of the 2200 Series is expected to start in mid-September at Dorner GmbH in Jülich, Germany. The low profile 2200 Series is a versatile line, engineered for numerous applications and industries, including accumulation, small-part transfers, inclines and declines, automated and manual assembly, packaging and industrial.
Customers can also design their 2200 Series Conveyors using D-Tools, Dorner’s online conveyor configurator. D-Tools is intended to help users select, design, configure and view conveyors in an intuitive 2D and 3D CAD platform. Dorner’s 2200 Series Conveyors will be available in D-Tools in German, Spanish and English languages; currencies will be Euros, U.S. dollars and Malaysian ringgit.
The conveyor line recently underwent a redesign to make the product stronger, faster and more flexible. It features a robust, single-piece frame design that reduces the overall number of needed stands. The frame comes with a Universal T-Slot that is compatible with industry-standard hardware to make guiding and attaching accessories fast and easy.
Additionally, a 5/8” nose bar transfer option with V-Guided belt tracking safely transfers parts at speeds up to 200 feet per minute for increased productivity. New tool-less guiding is fully adjustable, providing customers with added flexibility to further customize their conveyors to best fit their needs.
Features and benefits of the 2200 Series conveyor include:
· Load capacity up to 120 pounds; belt speeds up to 400 feet per minute
· Precise rack and pinion belt tensioning allows for fast and simple adjustments
· “Sealed for life” bearings reduce maintenance
In 2016, Dorner expanded its presence in Germany through the acquisition of Geppert-Band GmbH, a belt and modular belt conveyor manufacturer based in Jülich. Earlier this year Geppert-Band GmbH was consolidated into the Dorner brand. All Dorner products, as well as former Geppert-Band GmbH belts, conveyors and equipment, will be supported through the Jülich, Germany facility.
