Gearless Conveyor Drive
ABB’s gearless conveyor drive will now be available for medium power range motors.

ABB expands its gearless drive technology for medium power range (1 to 3 MW) to make it economically feasible for a broader range of conveying systems, including mobile equipment in mining operations.  Fewer parts and new motor technology increase the reliability and efficiency of the overall conveyor system. A permanent magnet motor, specifically designed for mining applications, is a core element of the system. The gearless conveyor drive system eliminates the gearbox from the drive, subsequently reducing the number of main wear parts and lowering maintenance and the associated costs. With its smaller footprint, it can be installed in smaller spaces. The gearless drive design is also said to be more energy efficient.
