New Drive HeadsPublished on 5. August 2009
Modular Conveyors have released Round Belt & Poly-V driven rollers to suit a range of applications.
Initially developed to enhance the drive capabilities of our Ø50mm 24VDC rollers, rollers fitted with these drive heads offer different drive options and capabilities.
Manufactured from robust Nylon 6 and fitted with a sealed precision bearing the drive heads are available to suit 7/16” hex, Ø12mm & Ø10mm shafts.
Round belt drive has historically been the standard drive method when slave driving rollers together and until the release of the new drive head this has been achieved by grooves in the roller tube. Conveyor rollers fitted with the Round Belt drive head and its matching twin groove maximise the transfer of drive and also keeps the belts at the end of the roller and away from product.
The Poly-V drive head is a relatively new method of slaving and driving rollers and offers a drive system capable of transferring much higher torque than round belts.
Once again the belts are kept at the end of the roller and away from product.
This drive medium is capable of transporting heavy product loads.
Modular Conveyors manufacture and offer conveyor rollers fitted with the drive heads and also installed as part of a conveyor module dependant on client and application requirements.
Drive heads and belts to suit various roller pitches are also available as spare parts.
Modular Conveyors are pleased to offer their advise on these and other products as part of their conveyor service.
