This unique design has all the benefits of the drum motor combined with the flexibility of an outboard standard C flange electric motor (not supplied by Van der Graaf) for quick and easy removal and installation.
The Cross Drive™ design houses all vital components such as gears, bearings and seals permanently lubricated within the drive shell . The electric motor which is the most sensitive component on any conveyor system and the most likely component to require replacement or exchange, can now be simply removed by loosening four bolts.
The benefits associated with the Cross Drive™ system are similar
to that of a drum motor:
• 96% Mechanical Efficiency • Reduced Downtime • Space Savings • Increased Safety
The Cross Drive™ is available in 6.5” and 8.5” diameters (other diameter drives currently in development). With wide range of gear ratios and torque ratings to choose from, the Cross Drive™ can be used in a wide variety of conveyor systems.
