Motor Application - Downsized Conveyor

Conveyor - Downsized Conveyor

Oriental Motor's right-angle or hollow shaft flat gearheads provide downsizing for most conveyor applications. With right-angle gearheads the motor can be mounted parallel to the conveyor to downsize the equipment. Oriental Motor offers a wide range of fixed speed and variable speed motors with right-angle and hollow shaft flat gearheads.

Downsizing Gear Options

Right-Angle Gearheads for AC Motors

Hollow Shaft Flat Gearheads for Brushless DC Motors

Right-Angle Gearhead

Right-Angle Gearheads are suitable for applications where space saving is required by allowing the motor to be mounted at a right-angle to the conveyor. Solid shaft and hollow shaft models are available.

Hollow Shaft Flat Gear

Direct connection to the drive shaft is possible without using a connecting part which enables equipment space saving. In addition, the hollow shaft flat gearhead enables permissible torque without saturation even at high gear ratios, so the motor torque can be fully utilized.

Fixed Speed Conveyor Belt Systems

For fixed speed or constant speed conveyors and conveyor systems Oriental Motor offers a wide range of AC motors.

AC induction motors are ideal for conveyor systems that operate continuously in one direction while AC reversible motors are ideal for conveyors that must reverse or change directions repeatedly. For conveyor systems where the load must be held in place or for vertical applications, there are a wide range of AC motors with power-off activated electromagnetic brake. For simple braking, our Speed Control Systems or Brake Pack are also convenient options. The IP67 rated AC induction motors are suitable for conveyors that will be in contact with water or need to be washed. Two types of AC synchronous motors are also available for conveyors where the motor needs to be operated continuously in one direction at synchronous speed regardless of load torque; the standard AC synchronous motor and a low-speed synchronous motor for frequent starting, stopping and reversing.

Speed Control Conveyor Belt Systems

For conveyors where the speed needs to controlled or vary during operation Oriental Motor offers easy-to-use AC Speed Control Motors as well as Brushless DC Motors (BLDC Motors) that offer a wide speed control range and constant torque regardless of load.

By combining a control circuit with the motor, speed changes can be performed. Speed control motors are optimal for switching between high speed and low speed operation and for arbitrary adjustment of speed.

Brushless DC Motors

Brushless DC Motors (BLDC Motors) provide high speed stability, energy saving and space saving. Brushless DC motors also allow for stable speed control even with a fluctuating load and offer constant torque over a wide speed range.

AC Speed Control Motors

AC Speed Control Motors allow for simple settings and basic speed control functions using an AC Motor. Inverters are control circuits that control the power supply frequency and voltage applied to three-phase induction motors in order to control speed.

AC speed control motors are motors that include an induction or reversible motor equipped with a tachogenerator (AC generator) for speed detection. By combining these motors with a dedicated control circuit, speed changes can be performed.

200 W (1/4 HP)
