 Dorner FlexMove Technology
     
Unique case handling application highlights

Dorner recently worked with a customer who needed to take a case and flip it 180° within a short distance.  The case was slightly bulky at about 1' x 1' x 10".  The customer wanted a way to positively control the product as it rotated.
 
Dorner tackled the challenge using a 180mm wide SmartFlex® with FlexMove Technology. The platforms flexibility in the frame of the conveyor enabled it to be twisted over a distance.  Two of these conveyors were used per 90° of rotation.  One conveyor started as the bottom conveying surface and gradually twisted perpendicular to the new conveying surface.  The other conveyor started perpendicular and gradually twisted to become the bottom conveying surface

Reliable detection in the food industry

The new IMF inductive proximity sensor from SICK features high enclosure rating and extended sensing range for use in all areas of food production.
 
The IMF inductive proximity sensor's V4A stainless steel housing and LCP plastic sensing face are FDA-approved, and the sensor is certified by Ecolab. The IMF is resistant to industrial cleaning agents and extremely watertight, with enclosure ratings of IP 68 and IP 69K. These features allow a longer service life even when subjected to frequent cleaning cycles, which reduces machine downtime.
 
With an extended sensing range from 2 mm to 20 mm and high precision the IMF inductive proximity sensor ensures reliable and stable processes

 Sensor/Actuator Hubs with IO-Link
   
Easy installation, efficient configuration, and consistent diagnostics

Balluff sensor hubs with IO-Link really efficiently extend machine installations. Up to 16 standard sensors can be connected up quickly, conveniently, and reliably. Each input can be configured as a normally closed or normally open contact using 
a parameter set.

The IO-Link actuator hubs fulfill requirements relating to passive safety for the switching of outputs as per Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, EN 954-1 Category 3, EN 13849-1, and EN 62061 SIL2. The I/O block is split into two galvanically isolated segments, so that two separately switchable safety circuits can be implemented using a single module.


ARV Auto-Release Venturi

Fastest vacuum and blow-off in the industry

ARV®  - the original, patented Auto-Release Venturi offers users the fastest vacuum and blow-off in the industry with single line operation, integrated blow-off and built-in exhaust silencer.  Mounting options include right or left hand apple core mounting or no apple core mount for use with DESTACO's spring cup mounts.  The ARV® Series is also available in a block style for remote mounting and each mount can be ordered with Imperial or Metric ports.

DESTACO has improved upon the already extremely successful ARV by adding a quick-release button to easily fine tune vacuum cup position during setup .
