Fixed Speed Conveyor Belt Systems

For fixed speed or constant speed conveyors and conveyor systems that require the motor to be splashed or washed periodically Oriental Motor offers the IP67 Rated Washdown AC Induction Motors.

The FPW Series washdown AC motors are watertight, dust-resistant geared induction motors which conform to IEC Standard IP67. They can used where they are splashed with water. These motors have high corrosion resistance through a special anti-corrosive caoting and stainless steel shaft (SUS303 type).



Output Power Power Supply
IP67 conveyor

IP67 Rated Washdown AC Induction Motors are suitable for applications where the equipment comes in contact with water or needs to be washed with water.

25 W (1/30 HP)
up to
90 W (1/8 HP)
Single-Phase 100-115 VAC
Single-Phase 200-230 VAC
Three-Phase 200-230 VAC


Speed Control Conveyor Belt Systems

For conveyors where the speed needs to controlled or vary during operation Oriental Motor offers Brushless DC Motors (BLDC Motors) with IP65 Rated 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.

Oriental Motor also offers a range of gear options to reduce the motor speed and generate greater torque.

Brushless DC (BLDC) Motor Gear Options

Parallel Shaft Gearheads

Hollow Shaft Flat Gearheads

Parallel Shaft

Parallel Shaft gearheads reduce the motor speed and generate greater torque. A wide range of gear ratios 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.
