About Les Serres de la Vallière
Les Serres de la Vallière is a company established by a young entrepreneur, Magalie Rajotte. Her parents came from a farming background and built a field crop business that stood out in the industry and inspired their daughter's entrepreneurial spirit. When Magalie decided to take a course in Agricultural Business Management and Technology at the Institut de technologie agroalimentaire in Saint-Hyacinthe, Québec, she intended to take over the family farm and leave a mark as distinctive as her parents'. In order to support the growth of the business, she decided to diversify into greenhouse cultivation, based on a previous experience. She sought the advice of experts to make her project a reality, including the team at Sollum Technologies, which will provide the smart lighting solution for her greenhouse. Her winter strawberry production will begin in the fall of 2022.

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.
