Conveyors
Feeders

Keep your conveyors moving under any load

You need conveyors to provide the precision, reliability and performance to keep your processes running efficiently.

Using our medium and low voltage AC drives to control your conveyor motors helps you get longer life out of the conveyor system. Our variable speed drives control and prevent the belts slipping and stretching, and that helps keep the belts last longer. Our drives also offer regenerative braking options for downhill conveyors that can put braking energy back into your electrical network.

Our product offering covers low voltage variable speed drives, medium voltage variable speed drives, PLCs, HMIs and motors. Our products are all backed by a global service and support network.

No slipping. No stretching. Long life belts. Everything counts when you are looking to improve the performance of your conveyors.

Highlights

  • Soft starting and stopping 
  • Smooth reversing
  • Reduced power consumption 
  • Prolonged conveyor belt lifetime 
  • Synchronizing of multiple motors 
  • Regenerative braking
  • Low harmonic drives
  • Dynamic torque and accurate speed regulation

PLCs and HMIs

Optimal material flow is essential for process excellence

Feeders with accurate and controlled dosage of raw materials and additives are crucial to your quality of the cement. Our drives provide precision control for your feeder to help prevent stretching, slipping and breaking of feeder belts.

By controlling the precise speed and/or torque of your feeder motors with our low voltage AC drives helps ensure you continuously have the exact material dosage. Our AC drives enable precise monitoring of the material dosage information, critical to quality cement production, while protecting the feeder belts and other mechanical equipment from harsh wear and tear.

Our product offering covers low voltage variable speed drives, medium voltage variable speed drives, PLCs, HMIs and motors. Our products are all backed by a global service and support network.

For demanding environments high protection class variants are available.

Accuracy. Control. Efficiency. Everything counts for you to create quality cement.

Highlights

  • Accurate speed and torque regulation
  • Detailed information on the dosing process elimination of mechanical dosing systems
  • Desired cement quality, consistent process quality
  • Optimized consumption of fuel, raw materials and additives
  • Easy connection to any automation system through multiple fieldbus adapters
  • IP66/IP67/UL Type 4X classes that are NSF certified
  • Sensorless vector control for induction and permanent magnet motors
