Van der Graaf Inc.’s new clutch brake (CBTM) drum motor is equipped with an internal brake designed for high indexing conveyor applications. The CBTM clutch brake can achieve up to 80 starts and stops-per-minute, says the company. The design allows the internal drum motor to run continuously and engages the pulley shell only when conveyor movement is desired.

The 8 1/2-inch diameter drum motor equipped with the clutch brake eliminates the in-rush start-up current, a common cause of heat generation in the conveyor drive. The motor’s compact, low-profile design eliminates all external parts, such as motors, gearboxes, chains or belts, pillow block bearings and associated guards.
