Motors improve belted conveyor efficiency

Whether a conveyor moves small or large parts, efficient and quiet operation are frequent requirements. For small part material handling applications, the 1100 Series conveyor platform now comes with upgraded fixed speed motors that are 50% quieter than the previous version, and still rated for 10,000 hours of operation. The motor is dimensionally identical to the pervious versions.

The 1100 Series conveyor has a frame height of ¾ in. This low profile enables the conveyor to fit into tight spaces. It is suitable for applications requiring lightweight or small product movement and is Clean Room Class 100 Certified.


The belt conveyor has a 5⁄8-in. roller transfer tail for accurate and efficient small-part end transfers; the conveyor belt is nearly flush with the frame for easy side transfers; and the patent-pending pinch drive allows for 15-lb load without the need for high belt tension.

A variable speed motor is also available. The fixed speed may have an on/off switch on the motor. The variable motor may have several control options including 24 Vdc or 115 Vac input power options. Additionally, users can interact with the variable speed motor from either the control panel, or it can be wired to be controlled remotely.
