ITOH DENKI’s Power Moller technology responds to the rapidly changing era to satisfy urgent needs for automation due to lack of human resources and achieves smart factory and IoT (Internet of Things).
Motor Driven Roller (DC Power Moller) Conveyors are different to conventional conveyor technology that uses large high voltage external motors & pneumatic systems, to manage long section conveyor. The Conveyor is divided into section composed of Belts, Slave rollers and a unique motor driven roller as we like to call it an MDR.
When a Product is detected by a sensor ahead on the conveyor line it sends a signal to the control board. The control board then action of MDR to start running, when product leaves the zone the MDR will stop.
Itoh Denki MDR uses a simple smart design with 24 Volt DC Motor, reduction gear and some electronics and the bearings are all contained within roller table itself. 24V DC run on demand operation with optimized conveyor design and can reduce the power consumption by 60% when compared external drive conveyor. The low voltage system and short conveyor zone design reduces the risk of electrical shock.
Itoh Denki MDR are built tough to drive intense, continuous operation, when time comes to replace motor roller, operation is simple and quick as result of simplicity of technology & absence of pneumatics and maintenance is easy.
Bulit around the intelligent 24VDC MDR technology, Itoh Denki has designed a range of compact lateral transfer module that can be used to create flawless automated sortation system.
Itoh Denki MDR technology can be used support many processes including picking, packing and shipping.
MDR technology is reliable & cost-efficient core technology for intralogistics material handling.
Comparison between AC Power Supply Power Moller and MDR (in- house test values).
Avoiding collisions transfer: MDR reduces control loads and requires less wiring for control. This transfer prevents collisions between transferred loads and achieves better products and quality.
Energy-saving transfer: only the zones necessary for transfer are driven, and they are stopped when there are no loas. This run-on demand transfer realizes more energy saving effects compared to other methods. It also leads to low noise and creates a comfortable work environment.
