Beschreibung

The idea of distributing power along the conveyor belt system has been around for a long time. Intermediate drives are nowadays realized by linear belt-on-belt or tripper drives. Both systems have technical or financial disadvantages due to high investment costs or an increased stress for the conveyor based on additional transfer points. An alternative drive concept is the application of driven idlers to realize a huge decrease of the maximum belt tension. Therefore, new concepts are necessary to control the large number of driven idlers.
