— Let's write the future. With gearless conveyor drives for medium power conveyors Up to now, gearless conveyor drives were only economic for high powered overland conveyors (3 to 7 MW per motor). ABB has now developed a solution which makes the advantages of the gearless technology also feasible for a broader range of conveyor systems in the medium power segment (0.6 to 3 MW per motor). The new gearless conveyor drive (GCD) with a permanent magnet (PM) motor reduces failure rates by 50% and improves energy efficiency. Different mounting variants enable application-optimized use for both, new or retrofitted conveyor drives. For more information, please visit us at www.abb.com/mining
