Dorner has introduced the Edge Roller Technology (ERT 250), a pallet handling conveyor capable of zoning and packing for accumulation and automation assembly applications. It uses rollers to move pallet conveyors smoothly with no friction.

The conveyor’s open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT 250 is suitable for applications calling for pallet or tray handling; no- and low-back pressure accumulation; medium to heavy load assembly automation; and cleanroom applications such as medical product or device manufacturing, assembly, packaging and others.

The rollers are driven by a patent-pending, energy efficient linear gearbox that gives users added flexibility with motor positioning and zoning. This allows for zone and slip roller operation. Simply removing a lower gear creates independent zones. The non-contact zone control provides simplified traffic control that eliminates pallet stops and pneumatic valves. Conversely, slip rollers can be used for full length runs with conventional pneumatic pallet stops. The rollers are easily accessible and can be replaced without affecting the remaining portion of the conveyor.
