Dorner has officially released their new Edge Roller Technology (ERT) 250 conveyor that provides unique, beltless, zone control for pallet and tray handling. The ERT 250 uses rollers to move pallet conveyors without friction and has an open design that prevents small parts, screws, etc. from dropping into the rollers and causing damage. View our webinar recording to get an in-depth look at the features and benefits of this new conveyor system. 

This conveyor is ideal for applications that call for pallet or tray handling, no- and low-back pressure accumulation, and medium to heavy load assembly automation. Additionally, it is ISO Class 4 approved, making it a perfect solution for medical product or device manufacturing, assembly, packaging, and more. 

The conveyor's rollers are driven by an energy-efficient, patent-pending linear gearbox that provides users added flexibility with zoning and motor positioning. This also allows zone and slip roller operation. Non-contact zone control eliminates pallet stops and pneumatic valves, but slip rollers can also be used for full length runs with conventional pneumatic pallet stops. Additionally, individual rollers can be replaced without affecting the remaining portions of the conveyor.
