Efficient and Cost Effective Conveyor Belt Drives
Improves Conveyor Reliability
Since 1952, the Rulmeca drum motor has been a reliable conveyor drive. The hermetic seals and continuous oil bath of all bearings and gears insure that the drive provides consistent “up time” in spite of 24/7 operating conditions.
Rulmeca drum motors require less than 90% of the electrical power of exposed drive systems when compared with motor/reducer/chain & sprocket or motor/reducer/V-belt drive configurations.
Improves Personnel Safety
The Rulmeca drum motor protects plant personnel from pinch points as well as slip, trip, and fall hazards because it encloses all moving mechanical parts within a pulley shell . The drive eliminates the need for expanded metal guarding around rotating shafts, external gearboxes, motors, and cooling fans.
The Rulmeca drum motor encloses its motor, gearbox, and bearings within a hermetically-sealed, oil-filled pulley shell, making it a very compact and lightweight conveyor drive system. This is a big advantage to operators and manufacturers of package handling and processing equipment.
Lowers Maintenance Expense
Since the Rulmeca drum motor does not use external bearings, which require greasing and inspection, but rather encloses all mechanical parts within an oil-filled shell, it reduces maintenance requirements to a fraction of what exposed drive systems require.
Makes Installation Easier
Since the Rulmeca drum motor is compact, lightweight, and pre-aligned, installation is quick and easy. Setting the drive only requires four bolts and electrical termination. Installation time is usually 1 to 2 hours. Heavy external gearboxes and motor frames, as well as guarding around rotating shafts, are eliminated.
