FlexMove - Plastic slat conveyors
Drive systems & options.
Most of the FlexMove plastic slat conveyor series have all of the drive options shown: Call for
Direct drive with and without motor. The most basic drives available across the range and lowest
cost. Takes up more width than the suspended drive and the motor is in a prominent location. Generally used
for shorter, lighter conveyors without many curves. Has not got the same facility for a standard
torque limiter as the suspended drive.
Suspended drive with and without motor. The motor is tucked away under the belt and is therefore
less prominent. The suspended drive has more flexible fixed speed options without inverter necessary because the
gearbox housing can accommodate a wider combination of different pulley ratios. The suspended drive can use the
standard torque limiter, this prevents motor burn out in the event of overloading the belt or mechanical
Intermediate direct drive with and without motor. This drive is used in the middle of a straight
section of conveyor to add traction or as the main driver. Weight capacity on the belt is a little more
limited than a standard end drive.
Intermediate suspended drive with and without motor. As above but the suspended version.
Intermediate catenary drive with and without motor.
Wheel drive with and without motor. Used in loop systems to allow endless surface only belt
function with no belt return.
