Dorner manufactures innovative conveyor solutions that are available in Canada from Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd. This comprises a full lineup of packaged and custom systems (belt, modular belt, and flexible chain conveyors) that serve all industrial, packaging, and sanitary automation needs. While Dorner’s portfolio is easy to select from, the manufacturer offers a simple five-step guide to finding the right material-handling solution for any plant or warehouse.

Optimized efficiency and productivity

Dorner offers a wide range of flexible conveyor platforms that are easy to integrate and optimize efficiency and productivity. With full service and support from selection to installation, professional engineers can design and assemble custom engineered conveyor systems for any needs, from standard special conveyors to fully integrated systems.

These material-handling solutions are easy to purchase and acquire, thanks to an efficient delivery and support network that includes Advanced Motion & Controls in Canada. Before a customer acquires a product, of course, a selection process is necessary. Dorner recommends the following five steps when choosing one of its conveyor systems:

  1. 1. Environmental influences. The most suitable solution depends on whether the work environment is dry or wet, or whether it is a standard industrial setting (from pharmaceuticals to manual assembly). Environments that require wash-down should use systems that can be disassembled easily.
  2. 2. Configuration. Consider whether the layout requires the ability to move in various directions, accommodate other equipment, or work within restrictions. Various design types are available.
  3. 3. Sizing it up. The size of the conveyor system should be appropriate for the items being moved. It should also fit within the operating space, with room for worker movement.
  4. 4. Moving it. Acquire the right motor mounts to move products at the correct speed, as well as any required accessories.
  5. 5. Other details. Determine the right style of belt for the application, plus whether a flexible chain or a translucent appearance is needed.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
