Dorner’s Precision Move technology for its 2200 Series low profile belt conveyors now offers a gang drive option to power and move multiple conveyors from one common motor. This allows one gearmotor to drive multiple conveyors at the same speed with positively driven belting. This is useful in automation, sortation, vision inspection, part positioning and indexing applications. The gang drive location is typically in the middle of the conveyors to free up the ends for interfacing with other equipment.
The Mid-Drive for the 2200 can be located anywhere along the frame between the two ends for maximum flexibility. Conveyors can be spaced as far as 48” apart, and can be adjusted while operating for maximum application versatility. In addition, the precision belts provide exact speed match from conveyor to conveyor making the moving of parts accurate and precise.
