How to reduce cost and machine downtime in Intelligent infeed conveyors?

Veldhoven April 11, 2017

Reduction of maintenance cost, machine downtime and product cost of Intelligent infeed conveyors for the packaging industry were the most important design parameters when LMT systems started the development of the SBM125 family of “SmartBelt” motors . These are single side mounted Direct-Drive Torque Motors which are fully integrated into the roll (Drum).

Single Side mounted (Balcony mount), no gearbox and no risk of getting oil or grease into the packaging process.

What makes the SBM125 unique is that the motor is fully integrated into the roll and is single side mounted tot the conveyor frame. This is enabling easy and fast replacement of the belt without having to disassemble the entire conveyor. Integration of the Motor in the roll means there is no need for an external shaft and bearing blocks, also by utilizing our Permanent Magnet Torque motor technology no mechanical transmission like a gearbox or pulley system is required. With the SBM125 motors you create a powerful, compact, clean and low maintenance infeed-System. The compact motor design allows for multiple infeed lines to be positioned close together which saves manufacturing space.

Integrated Servo motors

SBM125 motors are Servo motors with an integrated Absolute encoder but can also be utilized sensorless. This series is available with Continuous Torque performance of 3,5Nm to  8Nm at belt speeds of over 3m/s. Fast response to direction and/or load variations allows for excellent dynamic behavior.

Exchangeable sleeve

Unique feature of these motors is the exchangeable sleeve which by default comes with a crowning and can be provided with surface lagging. In addition we can provide special versions with for instance: sprockets, cogging, v-groove or other surface configurations. Standard sleeve widths are 102mm and 139mm but also wider sleeves can be provided.
