This patent-pending Cross Drive™ is a new drive roller that combines the benefits of conventional drive methods for powering conveyor systems. Benefits include:
- Space savings: Available in 6.5-inch and 8.5-inch diameters, requires less operating space than conventional in-line drives by eliminating speed/gear reducers.
- Energy efficient: The transfer of power from the motor’s drive shaft to the drive roller’s outer shell is 96 percent mechanically efficient.
- Safe operation: No external moving parts eliminate the possibility of employee injury and/or product contamination.
- Installation flexibility: The roller easily slides into place and is secured with just 4 bolts, then the motor of choice is attached to the roller shaft with a standard coupler.
