Retooling Tomorrow's Manufacturing Workforce for a Safer, Digital Future
Evolving to smart manufacturing operations is not just about retooling facilities to support new equipment, systems, data and processes. It's also very much about retooling the workforce to support digital transformation initiatives today and tomorrow.
Obsolescence Management for Manufacturing - Minimizing Unplanned Downtime
It is estimated that almost every factory loses at least five per cent of productivity, with some experiencing as much as a 20 per cent loss, due to downtime. This translates into millions of dollars in revenue loss.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors
The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
