After Raising more than $77,000 on Kickstarter, Presales of the GroBox Indoor Hydroponic Greenhouse Continue on Corporate Website
All-in-one, plug-and-play, self-watering GroBox gives anyone an easy way to grow food in the convenience of their own home
After raising more than $77,000 from crowdfunding backers on Kickstarter, consumers can continue purchasing the easy-to-use GroBox indoor hydroponic greenhouse on the corporate website at http://www.getgrobox.com in early March.
By the end of the Kickstarter Campaign, crowdfunders helped push presales of the all-in-one, plug-and-play GroBox seven times higher than its campaign goal.
Offering anyone the ability to grow their own plants conveniently in their own home, GroBox controls the watering schedules and air flow to grow plants faster than other methods while using two-thirds less water than traditional systems.
GroBox was designed with the latest hydroponics technology that allows the device to be self-watering, set watering cycles and manipulate the LED grow lights for the correct amount of light. This means that users only change the water in GroBox a few times a month - skipping the guesswork for how often they should be watering their plants.
GroBox also comes with a formulated a fertilizer solution in the form of clay pellets, replacing messy soil, which ensures plants get the exact nutrients they need and allows for more even water distribution. The LED grow lights in GroBox also provide the lighting plants need no matter the season or outside weather and are also customizable for the growth phase of specific plants.
GroBox is easy to set up, as well. Users only need to:
Add filtered water to fill line, then add in fertilizer
Add clay pebble growing medium
Add plant mediums and insert seeds (or clones)
Set growing settings based on plants they are growing
From there, GroBox owners only sit back and watch their plants grow, changing the water inside only a few times a month. Plants can either be grown from seeds or clones.
GroBox was designed to make it easy for everyone, everywhere to grow their own plants in the convenience of their home, on their own time, and during any season. By growing their own plants, users also know exactly where they come from - assuring users that they are eliminating pesticides and other harmful chemicals from entering their bodies.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors
The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
