LMT systems, introduces a new Direct-Drive motor approach to smart belt applications

August 5, 2016

LMT Systems, a US and European based manufacturer of application specific linear and rotation motors introduces the SBM125-family of cantilever mount Belt motors.

Jerry Miller, CEO – LMT Systems,  comments: “We are excited about this new motor family. The SBM125 is a high dynamic Direct-Drive motor family specifically designed for Smart belt applications for the packaging and food processing industry”. The High Torque outer-runner Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor design (PMSM) does not contain a gearbox, which means no oil, no grease, zero backlash and zero maintenance. The only moving parts are the bearings. The motor can be mounted in any position required and responds fast to load and position variations”.

The cantilever (single side) mounted design enables easy belt maintenance and a sleek conveyor belt design. The fact that there is no motor hanging off the side of the conveyor allows for conveyor systems to be put closer together fitting more conveyors in the same space allowing higher factory floor space efficiency.

The SBM125 is able to run at a continuous belt speed of 2m/s with a max at 3m/s. Peak Torque performance varying from 7Nm for the SBM125-103 to 16Nm for the SBM125-140. This motor family has high position accuracy due to the on board single turn absolute encoder, it does not require homing or magnetic realignment.

The standard SBM125 is currently available in 103mm and 140mm width and comes with a crowned HUB. Variations to the standard HUB can be made available upon customer request.
