The challenge is to design compact high-speed infeed and outfeed conveyors that have a small footprint yet provide excellent performance in terms of speed, acceleration, and starting torque. Conveyor designs that use external motors must account for the high starting torque of the side-flanged motor so as to avoid twisting or unwanted vibration.
This is a highly complex design task. Momentum Technologies solves this challenge with its compact, all-in-one synchronous drum motor design. Here, the starting and braking torques are fully aligned with the force axis of the conveyor, making the motor, which achieves speeds of up to 2.5 m/s, an integral and 100% vibration-free part of the conveyor without additional design effort.
The customer is very satisfied with the solution from NGI TechDrive and sees NGI as an innovative partner whom they can cooperate with on future projects.
