Keeping salmon on the move
17 April 2013
A company that processes salmon delicacies is exploiting the capabilities of the new Interroll Synchronous Drum Motor in its latest slicing production line. The line incorporates A.B. Process slicing machines that feature a PU belt conveyor driven by synchronous drum motors to provide efficient sequential transport and make sure slices stay on carrier boards.
The space-saving 80mm diameter synchronous drum motor is the company's most powerful, energy-efficient generation of drum motors; it enables one drive system to suit all needs. It is easy-toinstall in belt conveyors for food and packaging processes and other industrial uses.
It is said to offer excellent start-stop performance, optimum torque at all speeds, maximum acceleration/ braking performance and low operating drum temperature of about 45Â°C.
Interroll says that when used with its new frequency inverter IFI-IP55 and vector control, the performance of conveyor belt systems can be substantially enhanced.
