Low-profile belt conveyor
By Mary Del
Dorner’s 2200 Series low-profile belt conveyor increases its weight carrying capacity to a 200-lb maximum load. The 2200 Series is able to move heavy loads while maintaining a 1.4-inch diameter pulley for optimal part transfer and machine interface. This compact design allows the conveyor to fit into tight spaces where other conveyors simply can’t. What gives the 2200 Series the added weight capacity is its engineered cogged belt with teeth that engage and grip the two sprocket pulleys on each end of the conveyor. The action of the teeth on the back of the belt engaging the sprocket pulleys prevents slippage, which means the conveyor can carry a much heavier load. These engineered features increased the carrying capacity by more than 65 percent. In addition, the conveyor can handle this weight capacity while pushing or pulling the load. The 2200 Series is ideal for product assembly, manufacturing and packaging processes, the company says. Specific applications include machine integration, robotic pick-n-place, indexing, accurate part positioning, timed conveying, vision inspection, sheet or wide-part handling.
