Drive makes roller conveyors even more efficient
The Interroll Poly-Vee drive concept combines Interroll RollerDrives of the 1700 or 3500 series and flexible multi-rib belts to create a user-friendly, durable and highly efficient solution for roller conveyors. Owing to their unique geometrical design and special drive heads with nine grooves, conveyor segments of up to 6m in length can be powered with just a single RollerDrive - capable of transporting heavy unit loads of up to 100kg.
The new system is said to be capable of achieving up to 300% more torque transmission as compared to standard round belts, and the flexible design of the multi-rib belts makes the system particularly simple and efficient to assemble, even when it comes to integrating the new unit into existing installations. This saves time and money. Thanks to the consistent level of tension maintained by the belts, both acceleration and braking are shorter and more precise than in conventional systems. Even delicate products can be handled with maximum efficiency thanks to zero-pressure accumulation control.
To avoid leakage or contamination from the material being conveyed, the drive components are integrated well 'out of reach'. The Interroll Poly-Vee concept offers both system manufacturers and users a reliable, energy-saving, cost-effective and easy-to-install drive solution for roller conveyors.
