Power Mollers are rollers with a built-in drive motor and reduction gears.
Power mollers do not use other drive components such as drive motors, drive chains, or sprockets, as is the case with ordinary conveyor systems, and can be rotated by the roller alone.
Power mollers are used to drive belt conveyors or as part of roller conveyors, and are connected to free rollers.
Power mollers are mainly used as parts of conveyor systems. They are built into the end of belt conveyors and used as drive pulleys, and are also installed in roller conveyors, which are conveyors with numerous rollers arranged at regular intervals.
When built into a roller conveyor, the drive torque of the power moller is transmitted to the free roll by connecting the power moller and the free roll with a driving part such as a V-belt to rotate the other rolls.
Since the moter is built in, it can be combined with sensors and other control devices. When a load is fed into the conveyor, the sensor detects it, and the conveyor can be controlled to move or stop.
A drive motor and reduction gear are built into the roll. There are various types of power mollers for different applications, such as waterproof types, types with built-in brakes, and types dedicated to curve conveyors.
A power line for the motor extends from the shaft of the roll, and power can be supplied to the motor inside the roll by applying voltage to the power line. There are DC power supply and AC power supply, and it is possible to supply AC power directly from the breaker, and it is also possible to operate with DC power from the power supply .
When used as a drive pulley for a belt conveyor, the belt and rolls are meshed by applying a certain tension to the belt to make it adhere to the rolls, and the drive torque is transmitted to the belt. In this case, a V-belt is used, so a power mora with a V-pulley is used. The Power Moller with a V pulley has a pulley groove on one side, and by hooking the V belt there, the driving torque is transmitted to the free roll.
