Fast action roll doors were sourced from DMF International for a conveyor application in a recent project. The brief sought a solution for controlling dust, temperature and minor security between the operational areas.

DMF’s rapid doors were activated with the conveyor system, allowing the movement of stock between the two work areas to be fully automated. DMF’s solution has not only improved efficiency but is also safeguarding the working environment and ensuring stock quality.

The activation was achieved primarily using photo electric light beam sensors to determine stock positioning, but other forms of logic control can be considered to operate the doors in sequence with the stock on the conveyor.

The DMF RL3000 rapid roll door was perfect for the application, with the project requiring a total of 7 units to be installed. Being an Australian manufacturer of high speed roll doors, DMF was able to customise the doors to suit the specific design requirements.

DMF’s high speed doors can also be implemented on palletisers, and other areas requiring safety control access or atmosphere control with improved safety, with the fast action roll doors preventing worker access to the palletiser during operation.

DMF International specialises in supplying rapid roll doors, and has completed a number of projects requiring bespoke doors for hatch entrances in conveyor applications.
