ABB is making its gearless conveyor drive available for use on a wider range of conveyor systems. Already proven on long, large overland systems, the newest drive is designed for medium-power-range motors (1 MW to 3 MW per motor) to make this technology economically feasible for a broad range of conveyor systems.
Fewer parts and new motor technology increase the reliability and efficiency of the overall conveyor system. A permanent magnet motor specifically designed for mining applications is a core element of this system that contributes to its reliability and ability to perform in the most challenging environments.
