Drives for conveyors

Maximize conveyor uptime

Conveyor applications need to perform reliably to ensure maximized uptime and the lowest cost of ownership. VLT® drives provide optimized motor control and, for example, improve quality and product consistency, minimize waste and optimize whole filling and packaging area. They are often regarded as the preferred brand within many of these industry sub-segments.

Highly sensitive products, such as still bottled water and alcohol-free beer or new materials for packaging and bottles, raise the hygiene requirements in production plants. In addition to the Machinery Directive and national standards, hygiene regulations are becoming increasingly important for plant design and drive engineering. Danfoss is unique in offering IPA certified solutions and products for use in hygiene-critical sub-systems.

The VLT® FlexConcept® is intended for use in hygiene-critical sub systems. The motors are certified by the Fraunhofer Institute IPA for direct use in cleanrooms and aseptic production plants.

The system simplifies project planning, installation, commissioning and maintenance, especially for conveyor systems. System variants can be reduced by up to 70% so users benefit from maximum flexibility with a minimum number of modules, including motors and drives which offer a unified operating concept and standardized functionality regardless of whether the system is implemented with a centralized or decentralized structure, in dry, wet or aseptic areas.

Read how Molson Coors bottling plant generated savings with VLT® FlexConcept

Breweries consume a lot of energy in running their processes. At Molson Coors’ Borsodi Brewery in northeastern Hungary, an upgrade of the gear motors on a glass bottle filling line has resulted in energy savings of 33-42%.
