Drives for conveyors

Maximize conveyor uptime

Conveyor applications need to perform reliably to ensure maximized uptime and the lowest cost of ownership. Danfoss solutions 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, the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) regulations are becoming increasingly important for plant design and drive engineering. Danfoss is unique in offering EHEDG and IPA certified solutions and products for use in hygiene-critical sub-systems.

The VLT® FlexConcept® is currently the only solution on the market that provides EHEDG-certified components specifically intended for use in hygiene-critical sub systems. The motors are also 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 might 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.
