Drum motors

HIMMEL®-drum motors are used for driving both stationary and mobile conveyor belts to move various types of bulk materials; they are also used in transport systems that do not use belts.

The HIMMEL®-drum motor has a space-saving design and good adaptability for varying usage conditions, allowing to be used in ever more different applications. It has already been successfully in use for decades in many areas of conveyor technology.

HIMMEL®-drum motors are designed so that the electromotor and reduction gear are housing inside the drum shell, forming a closed gear unit that is well protected against external influences.

Good dimensioning of the individual parts guarantees a long service life, even under tough operating conditions. The latest production methods ensure low noise operation with high efficiency. The mutual clamping shafts are flattened and allow for simple and time-saving installation using a two-part clamping point.

The power supply from the terminal box to the integrated electromotor passes through the hollow clamping shafts; the mains connection is made at the fixed terminal board as is normal for electromotors. Alternatively, HIMMEL®-drum motors can be designed with a cable.

Since there are no moving transmission elements (collector rings, brushes) that are subject to wear, the power supply requires no maintenance.

HIMMEL®-drum motors have an entirely closed design, making them dust-proof and hose-proof up to IP69k. They are therefore suitable for use outdoors and in dusty or damp spaces.

Electromagnetic brakes, backstops and rotational speed monitors can be installed. The design principle of HIMMEL®-drum motors ensures low noise and the minimal installation space makes them space-saving drive solutions.
