Drum Motor Has Permanent Magnet Electric Motor Technology

Is built for reliability, efficiency, and longevity

Vdg Intelli Drive Drum Motor

The VDG IntelliDrive drum motor, on display at PACK EXPO Las Vegas Booth SU-7462, features variable belt speed without torque reduction and a permanent magnet electric motor that is enclosed inside the drum, along with the gear reducer and gears. The drum motor has a service life of 80,000 hr before scheduled maintenance. For sanitary food belt conveyor applications, the all-316-stainless-steel motor is available with the belt profile machined onto the drum that drives the modular belts without the use of sprockets. 

“The difference with the VDG drum motor is that all components, including the motor and gear reducer, are enclosed inside the drum, providing a compact, space-saving solution that is up to 96% mechanically efficient and consumes 30% less energy,” states VDG Heavy Industry Drive Specialist Matt Lepp.
