New ABB Drive Solution significantly decreases the Cost Threshold for Gearless Conveyor Technology

Zurich, SwitzerlandABB‘s gearless conveyor drive is now available for use on a wider range of conveyor systems. Already proven on larger motors, the newest drive is designed for medium power range motors (1 to 3 MW per motor) to make this technology economically feasible for a broader range of conveyor systems, including the use on mobile equipment in mining operations. The new solution can be applied for both greenfield and brownfield systems, and significantly decreases the cost threshold for gearless conveyor technology.

Flexco TUG HD Belt Clamp simplifies Maintenance Work on Conveyor Belts

Rosenfeld, Germany – When a conveyor belt is stopped for maintenance, say in a coal mine, its own weight can create problems by distributing the tension unevenly. To ensure that a belt can be safely cut and securely spliced by service technicians, the forces in the area under repair should be spread over the whole width. For this purpose Flexco has developed the TUG HD belt clamp. It is suitable for a variety of materials and belt types – and meets rigorous industry standards.
