New TM113.1G Drum Motor Solves Guided Belt Problems

Southquip Industrial is pleased to release the Axis TM113.1G drum motor variant to the market. At the request of our clients a solution was required for providing an economic solution to drive belts with vee guide tracking profiles. By redesigning our TM113 drum motor we have incorporated K17 Vee Grooves into the endhousings. This also allows double bearing reinforcement for high load resistance. Guided belts are commonly used in applications where lateral forces affect belt guidance or conveyor straightness can’t be guaranteed. Previously the lagging of the drum motor was required to achieve a similar result. With the new TM113.1G design there is no heat dissipation issues as the drum shell is in constant contact with the belt.

Advantages and Benefits:
  • Eliminate belt tracking issues
  • Simple slider bed¬†conveyor construction
  • Suited to applications with laterial force on belt
Applications:
  • Portable and mobile conveyors
  • Conveyors in vertical position
  • Animal restraint conveyors
  • Conveyors without access to tracking mechanisms
