Distribution Center Conveyor

Groschopp Inc.

A large distribution and fulfillment center needed motors to power a new conveyor belt system in several of its warehouses. The loading on the belts was variable from nearly no load to carrying parcels that weighted several hundred pounds. The belts run continuously for 24 hours a day and only stopped for maintenance. The motors needed to be used in various locations on the belt, most in tight spaces.

THE CHALLENGE

  • Conveyor belt in shipping/warehouses
  • Variable torque load
  • Needed to fit into tight envelopes
  • Continuous duty

THE SOLUTION

  • Right angle AC gearmotor
  • This gearmotor fits into a small space
  • The right angle gearbox easily supports variable torque loads
  • Uses a standard gearmotor, thus reducing costs
