Increased efficiency and greater power
Interroll presented its energy-efficient 24V drive technology and its powerful drum motors at Drives & Controls, including what it described as the world’s most powerful, stainless steel synchronous drum motor for belt conveyor systems, with a proven output of up to 1.1kW, a particularly high torque up to 100Nm and extremely high belt tension. With this drive solution the food and pharmaceutical industries have an ultra-hygienic and energy-saving option at their disposal. Its particu-larly com-pact design supports smaller turning diameters and thus also makes it possible to convey smaller items and handle a wide range of products on one single system.
By contrast with conventional conveyor systems that are equipped with a drive in continuous operation, Interroll says the RollerDrive makes it possible to build up an intelligently controlled conveyor system divided into zones. Therefore, the drives of each individual conveyor section are only powered when material is actually conveyed. At throughput rates of 600 to 1,800 units per hour, this achieves energy savings of up to 50% by comparison with continuously running motors. Moreover, thanks to the demand-driven operation and the elimination of additional driving mechanisms, the noise level and the plant wear are substantially lowered as well.
Interroll says its new motor platform is completely modular in design and encompassing both synchronous and asynchronous technologies. Available first in 80mm-diameter drums, an expansion of the entire range is underway.
All motors are available with a widened spectrum of speeds and the high standard of hygiene compliant with IP69k. Each motor is tested and designed in modular fashion in such a way that it can be delivered worldwide in the shortest possible time.
