Added Flexibility for Dorner's 2200 SmartFlex® Conveyor Platform with New 85 mm Width Option

Dorners flexible chain conveyor platform, SmartFlex®, is now available in an 85 mm width standard option.

HARTLAND, Wis., (March 16, 2017) — Dorners flexible chain conveyor platform, SmartFlex®, is now available in an 85 mm width standard option.

With this addition, SmartFlex Conveyors are now available in 4 standard
widths: 65 mm (2.6"), 85 mm (3.3"), 105 mm (4.1") and 150 mm (5.9"). Other sizes that can be specially ordered include: 45 mm (1.8"), 180 mm (7.1") and
260 mm (10.2"). This new expanded offering gives customers greater options for various applications in packaging, food, medical, assembly and other industries.

SmartFlex Conveyors are engineered to exact customer specifications and shipped in sub-assemblies for fast and easy installation. Using Dorners Online Configurator D-Tools, users can design and engineer simple or complex conveyors to meet their needs in minutes. The industry-leading tool delivers a complete 3D CAD assembly model for instant validation of fit.

One of the many strengths of the SmartFlex Conveyor is product transfers.
Accessories such as infeed and exit powered transfers allow for smooth end transfers for products as small as 3" diameter. SmartFlex Conveyors are engineered to seamlessly integrate with Dorners other 2200 Series low profile belt conveyor platforms, an advantage that gives customers the ability to select Dorner for all its mainline and support conveyor systems.

For additional flexibility to move product up or down and around equipment, the SmartFlex Helical Curve, Spiral, and Alpine conveyors are the answer.
The SmartFlex Helical Curve allows incline or decline movement through corners and straights, and provides capability for vertical incline with minimal space. The SmartFlex Spiral is capable of twisting 360° degree turns to move product vertically with an extremely small footprint. Both the helical and spiral conveyors feature a patent pending chain design that allows the conveyor to maintain speeds and loads through the angled curve.
The SmartFlex Alpine is designed for long, continuous incline or decline runs with tight turns. Its also ideal for accumulating, buffering and
cooling product between processes or machines.

Dorners December 2015 acquisition of Malaysia-based FlexMove, a leading manufacturer of flexible chain conveyors for the food, beverage, automotive, electronic and other industries, is helping drive new innovation in the SmartFlex line by offering customers expanded conveyor options and capabilities.

Specifications, features and benefits of the SmartFlex Conveyor include:
• Aluminum single-piece frame
• Navigates very tight corners with wheel and plain bend options
• Multiple product transfer options for end and side transfers
• Speeds up to 250 feet per minute

EXAIR’s Gen4 Ion Air Cannon

EXAIR's Gen4 Ion Air Cannon

Quiet, efficient, concentrated flow of ionized air removes static and dust! EXAIR's Gen4 Ion Air Cannon neutralizes static electricity and cleans at distances up to 15 feet (4.6m) with no moving parts. It is ideal for those hard to reach spaces or confined areas that require a concentrated flow of static eliminating ions. The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon will maximize ionized airflow while minimizing compressed air consumption. A small amount of compressed air is used to entrain a high volume flow of surrounding air. This combined stream is ionized by an emitter point (shockless) and delivered to the charged surface. A hose or tube can be connected to the air intake of the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon to draw quality air from another area. It requires only 10 PSIG (0.7 BAR) for most applications. www.exair.com/184/iacdirem.htm EXAIR is offering a special right now on all of their Gen4 Static Eliminators.
