The 2200 Series low profile belt conveyors includes a gang drive option to power and move multiple conveyors from one common motor. This gang drive enables one gearmotor to drive multiple conveyors at the same speed with positively driven belting – a feature that’s useful in automation, sortation, vision inspection, part positioning and indexing applications. The gang drive location is typically in the middle of the conveyors to free up the ends for interfacing with other equipment.
The Mid-Drive for the 2200 can be located anywhere along the frame between the two ends for maximum flexibility. An added feature to the Precision Move Gang Drive option is the ability to adjust the distance between connected conveyors to adapt to changing applications or product sizes. Conveyors can be spaced as far as 48 in. apart, and can adjust as needed. In addition, the precision belts provide exact speed match from conveyor to conveyor making the moving of parts accurate and precise. Features of the gang drive conveyor include:
-Gearmotor below the level of the belt for unimpeded flow of product if it’s wider than the conveyors.
-Multiple conveyors can be ganged together to operate at the same speed.
-Four-inch minimum spacing between conveyors with standard guarding installed.
-A 1.75-in. minimum spacing between conveyors without guarding.
-A 200 pound total load capacity.
The conveying system includes the timing belt, integrated servo motor and drive, controls and mounting for the gearmotor. The 2200 Series has an accuracy +/- 0.40 in.
