Conveyors: How to Find an Optimum Gear Unit for Steel Belt Systems

For large conveyor belts required to carry heavy loads, drive systems incorporating suitably designed gear units are an excellent solution.

Do the right thing: In the mining industry, drive technology has a decisive influence on conveyor performance and system availability in continuous processes. Three-phase asynchronous motors plus gear units have proved a robust, quick-to-install, low-maintenance variant here.

In mining there are typical areas of application where the axiom “Fit and forget!” applies. That means that all the technology used serves to maximise profit direct and just for this reason has to be favourably priced, long-lived, powerful and robust. Belt conveyors (be it as steel or endless belts) are also subject to these demands by mine operators. In this respect there is a number of important aspects that ultimately result in the perfect conveyor belt drive.

Siemens has decades of experience in bulk material conveyor technology. High availability, proven technology and low costs are the advantages of the drive solutions for these applications.
