Motor Driven Roller Conveyor
Accumulation. Accumulation everywhere!
Motor Driven Roller (MDR) conveyor, like its simpler cousin chain driven roller conveyor, is assembled using a series of pulleys. These pulleys are then joined together using elastic bands. One roller in each of these series is internally driven and controlled independently of the other series. This way zones are created, which can start or stop independently of other zones. This is very useful when wanting to create accumulation for cases or other large product feeding equipment such as palletizers. With the zones being able to turn on and off independently zero pressure accumulation is possible, as well as merging of product lines without the need of clamps, stops, or metering belts.
