Demanding conveyor systems required a tough and durable VFD – so how did the search go?
01 March 2022
A global manufacturer of sanitary conveyor systems, used in food and pharmaceutical industries, recently began exploring the next generation of variable frequency drive technologies available, to power its platforms.
Better communications for IoT and remote access, improved quality and reliability, and global access to supplies were critical to ensuring the manufacturer could satisfy its customers.
US-based Dorner specialises in the design, applications, manufacturing and integration of conveyor systems. Its AquaPruf and AquaGard platforms are engineered specifically for industries that require their conveyors to meet the highest level of sanitary standards for their applications.
These platforms can be disassembled, with no tools, by one person and cleaned, sanitised and reassembled in about 10 minutes. Dorner’s sanitary designs represent real-time savings for customers.
