Motorized pulleys

March 7, 2006




Motorized pulleys with integrated shaft encoders from BDL America allow conveyor system operators to synchronize product movements. The encoders use either SKF or SNR pulse outputs to precisely monitor motorized pulley movement to control conveyor belt speed, position, torque and rotational direction. The motorized pulleys have been successfully applied in applications requiring properly timed conveyor movement, such as positioning, dispensing, adjusting, cutting, tape winding, pick-and-place operations and constant speed applications. The encoders are hermetically sealed within a stainless steel housing.
